2 Nashville Predators Most Likely to be Traded

The Nashville Predators have been playing some good hockey so far this season and look like a potential playoff team in the Western Conference. General manager David Poile has never been shy to make a trade or two to upgrade his hockey club and look for the Preds to be active this season.

The Predators currently sit 9-6-1 on the season and have a couple of players who they may dangle for some upgrades.

2 Predators Who Could Be Traded This Season

Filip Forsberg: This deal is going to come down to the pending contract extension. The talks continue between Forsberg's reps and Poile and if the two sides cannot reach a deal, a trade could very well happen. The Predators do not want to let Forsberg walk for nothing next summer so could be inclined to moving on from the long-time Pred. Any deal would involving Forsberg would be a blockbuster. He's been one of the most consistent offensive players in the NHL over the past few seasons. In 2021-22 he's tallied seven points in nine games and is currently on the IR with an upper body injury that's going to keep him out a few weeks.

Cody Glass: It hasn't worked out so far for Glass after a deal from the Vegas Golden Knights. He's currently down in the AHL, and the young prospect could be used to bring in some experienced talent closer to the trade deadline. Glass has recorded ten assists and no goals in 11 AHL games and only has appeared in 68 NHL games since being taken sixth overall in 2017. It's too early to call Glass a bust, but if he doesn't produce at the NHL level this season or next, the conversation could certainly be kick-started. His name is likely going to be involved in some trade talks as we approach the next roster freeze.
