NHL Awards, check. 2018 NHL draft, check. Qualifying offers, check. The big offseason events are starting to unfold as we inch closer to another season of hockey. The Nashville Predators don’t have reason to be very active this offseason. For the most part, the pieces are in place, and not many tough contract decisions are pending.
We learned that offers were extended to Ryan Hartman, Miikka Salomaki, and Juuse Saros. We also knew that Mike Fisher retired (again), and Alexei Emelin and Scott Hartnell were not being brought back.
