NHL Rumors

Will Filip Forsberg be traded at some point this season?


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.
