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.

Barry Trotz started the offseason with a big move by trading defenseman Ryan McDonagh back to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He gained a lot of salary-cap space, but now he must make a move or two to shore up his blue line. What will the Predators defense look like moving forward as they will likely lose three key pieces (McDonagh, Alex Carrier, Tyson Barrie).

The Predators also need to add scoring punch to the offense, but who is best suited to do that? We list a few free agents and trade possibilities.

What other corresponding moves could Trotz make in the wake of the McDonagh trade…like acquiring Mitch Marner from the Toronto Maple Leafs?
