Pretend for a minute it’s June.
You’re at this summer’s NHL draft, which happens to be in Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center.
Having failed to win a Stanley Cup once again, Nashville has finally thrown in the towel and admitted it should never have matched the Flyers’ outrageous 14-year, $110 million offer sheer for Shea Weber in 2012.
The Preds are up against it with the $68 million signing bonus structure and will have to fork out another $13 million.
General manager David Poile has stocked up on D-men all season and is finally willing to part with Weber for the right price.
It will be high for the Flyers, ready to do whatever it takes.
Who would you trade for Weber right now? And … would you part with defensive prospect Samuel Morin, who more and more NHL scouts are saying has a bit of a young Chris Pronger in him and is going to be a monster No. 1 someday.
he Nashville Predators will be looking to fine-tune their roster before the March 5 trade deadline and in the off-season, as they work towards competing next season.
As Predators GM David Poile continues to mend after being struck in the face with a puck prior to the Olympic break, management understands its position this season.
The Predators have been actively shopping center David Legwand, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
