Podcast: Thoughts on the P.K. Subban Trade
In light of the P.K. Subban trade, Herbie Brooks hops on the latest episode of Sports Punch with me to talk about the implications for the Nashville Predators.
GM David Poile shipped Subban off to the New Jersey Devils for defenseman Steven Santini, prospect Jeremy Davies, and two second round draft picks. We can all agree it pretty well looks like this was just a salary dump to free up some cash. And, of course, when you’re due $9M, it makes you a prime candidate for a move. That’s what happened here.
But, Herbie and I explore whether or not this was the right move to make, or whether or not the Preds should’ve considered moving Ryan Ellis instead. We look at how this impacts the Preds defense moving forward, and Herbie lets us know who he thinks will step up and claim Subban’s spot.
And, of course, the big question: what do you do with all that money?
For anyone who has even remotely followed the Preds over the last couple of seasons, you already know why rumblings indicate Matt Duchene could become a Nashville Predator. But, what exactly would his addition mean for the team? How does he help the offense? And, worst case scenario – what do the Preds do if they actually don’t land Duchene?
