Nashville Hockey Now’s Michael Gallagher talks Nashville Predators with Braden Gall of 440 Sports and Emma Lingan of the Hockey News on the Gold Standard podcast.

This week we discuss the elephant in the room: Mitch Marner. A few reports have linked Marner to the Predators, or least made the connection of there being interest on Nashville’s part, and we tell you why pursuing him is a bad idea. If the Predators don’t trade for Marner, are there other scoring options out there they should pursue?

We also dive into how the Predators should handle their unrestricted free-agent class and decide who should be re-signed and who shouldn’t. Could Barry Trotz be active on the trade front or possibly consider an offer sheet?

It seems like everything always comes back to Juuse Saros. Should the Predators trade him or extend him? We weight the options and give our opinions on each and debate whether or not Yaroslav Askarov is ready for the NHL.

We also breakdown what the best offseason strategy is for the Predators — adding proven goal scoring or calling up prospects.
