The strange moves just keep on coming. In a trade broken by Tennessean beat writer Joshua Cooper, the Nashville Predators have traded Alexander Sulzer to the Florida Panthers for a conditional seventh round draft pick. According to Cooper, the pick is conditional on Sulzer re-signing with the Panthers. 

We'll have more on this as we find out, but for now, Nashville only has 17 healthy skaters. 

Steve Sullivan has also been placed on injured reserve with a 'recurring groin injury.'
