NHL Trade Rumor chatter in the offseason had the Nashville Predators looking into buying and selling Filip Forsberg at some point this season. Forsberg’s cap hit is reasonably priced at $6 million and he lacks change safety.
Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports the Preds and Filip Forsberg are expected to start talks on a settlement extension. Forsberg, 27, is finishing a six-yr cope with a $6 million AVV.
LeBrun went on to say, the Forsberg camp will observe the Gabriel Landeskog deal as a similar where he signed an 8-year $56 million extension.
Forsberg will in all likelihood no longer receive a deal much less than a $eight million AVV and it's miles believed GM David Poile does now not want some other $8 million AVV forward at the group. The alternative definitely is to re-signal Forsberg to the brand new deal, change him on the NHL change deadline 2022 or alternate one in every of Matt Duchene or Ryan Johansen.
