Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Setting the table

New, comments

David Poile and the Preds hosted local media for a draft roundtable on Monday, and our own Kris Martel was there. A few things stuck out. 1- Maz is re-signed. 2- Hutton is likely gone. 3- Will someone please trade for Eric Nystrom? Anyone? If Poile is able to pull that off after telling the world he wants to trade him or buy him out... it would be a sports moment that would rival Babe Ruth pointing to center field.
