The Predators Show High Interest In Acquiring Former 1st Round Pick

The Nashville Predators find themselves in a tight spot this season in the NHL, currently neck-and-neck with the St. Louis Blues for the final wild card spot.

Amidst swirling rumors about goaltender Juuse Saros, it seems the Predators are eyeing a young forward from the Eastern Conference to bolster their lineup.

According to Sportsnet's Eliotte Friedman, the Predators have their sights set on Carolina Hurricanes forward Martin Necas, as potential trade talks loom on the horizon.

Reports suggest that discussions between the Hurricanes and the Predators have included the possibility of Saros heading to Carolina, with Necas potentially heading the other way in the deal.

Necas, 25, is coming off a strong season and has maintained decent production this year. With 17 goals and 23 assists in 51 games for Carolina, he's proven himself as a reliable contributor on the ice.

A move to Nashville could provide Necas with the opportunity to further elevate his game and become a consistent point producer in the NHL. While the outcome of these trade talks remains uncertain, Necas could represent a valuable asset for the Predators in exchange for Saros, among other considerations.
