NHL insider believes Preds will trade Subban

According to TVA Sports Corey Hirsch, the Nashville Predators are looking for potential suitors that would take defenceman P.K. Subban.

Hirsch stated the reason behind the rumor is that the Nashville Predators want to get rid of Subban's $9 million cap hit. And the Predators want to trade him as soon as the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs end.
I am 100% convinced that the Predators' management will be trading the star defenceman after the postseason, Hirsch told Sportsnet 650.
The Predators currently have $3 million in available cap space and want to make a splash after the postseason. Subban still has 3 more years to his contract, and the Predators will have to make a decision before the 2020 NHL Entry Draft as the League will be receiving the new Seattle expansion.

The Preds also want to extend captain Roman Josi once the 2019-2020 campaign ends and he won't come cheap. They will also see the arrival of top defensive prospect Dante Fabbro who already made his debut and is eager to make the team.

Subban scored 9 goals and 22 assists during the season for a total of 31 points in 63 games. Do you see the Predators trading away the star defenceman?
