Predators active on trade front

The Nashville Predators appear to be pursuing multiple moves, as Wednesday's 3pm ET trade deadline quickly approaches.

According to multiple league sources, the Predators are believed to be working on at least two separates trades that would result in a depth player leaving in one deal and a top-six forward arriving in another.

The Predators are believed to be trying to acquire a second-line forward, preferably a center.

TFP reported on Saturday that Predators GM David Poile has had discussions with the Tampa Bay Lightning about center Valtteri Filppula.

Filppula, 32, has one-year remaining on his contract after this season at a salary cap hit of $5 million. He also owns a limited no-movement clause, where he can list 16 teams he would accept a trade to.

The two teams may also be discussing center Tyler Johnson, whom the Lightning is also dangling in the trade market.

Johnson, 26, is in the final year of his contract and can become a restricted free agent July 1.

TFP Senior Writer Dennis Bernstein reported earlier this evening that the Predators are also engaged in talks with the Los Angeles Kings, though it's unclear which players the two teams are discussing.

The Predators have a considerable amount of salary cap space to play with, should they decide to add a body with a significant salary.
