I hate following this sort of thing early on in the process, but Smashville 24/7’s Ryan Porth and the Tennessean’s Joshua Cooper noted the following from Predators GM David Poile, who was speaking to reporters on a conference call after trading Anders Lindback to Tampa Bay:
Poile believes [Ryan] Suter will test the market
Poile says its unlikely he trades Suter’s rights. Poile worried about him testing market.
Cooper went and disappeared after posting this quip...
Poile says he thinks Suter will go to July 1
So we’ll see what transpires in terms of context over the next couple of hours.
