Predators Rumors: 3 Potential Trade Destinations for Juuse Saros

Nashville Predators star goalie Juuse Saros is once again picking up some steam in the rumor mill as a top trade candidate. The Predators are in the middle of a major retooling period, which they kicked off last season at the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline when they moved several players. Due to this, let's go over three teams who could look to acquire Saros now.

Edmonton Oilers: The Edmonton Oilers are a team who will at least look at Saros over these next few weeks. While Stuart Skinner has bounced back from his tough start to the season, they would benefit immensely by adding a star like Saros between the pipes. They would need to get creative to make it work financially, but they certainly should be trying to. 

Carolina Hurricanes: The Carolina Hurricanes have an excellent roster, but one area that they are looking to improve is their goaltending. This is especially so with Pyotr Kochetkov out indefinitely due to a concussion. With the Canes never being afraid to make a big move, they are likely to be among the suitors for Saros. 

Los Angeles Kings: While Cam Talbot had an outstanding start to the season, he has struggled as of late, and it could open the door to the Kings bringing in a goalie with term with Saros. With Pheonix Copley done for the season, they are in a position to add a goalie, so they are a team to watch when it comes to Saros.
