The Nashville Predators were one of the first teams linked to Mitch Marner after the Maple Leafs' playoff loss, and now all signs are pointing that way again.

On Tuesday, the Predators kicked off their off-season by trading defenseman Ryan McDonagh back to his former team, the Tampa Bay Lightning. This move has been connected to Nashville's interest in Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner, as it gives the Predators more assets to potentially make a deal with Toronto.
We now have 3 first-round picks and 5 second-round picks for the next 2 years of drafts! Big move coming????

With Craig Berube now coaching the Leafs, it's unclear how interested Toronto is in a Marner trade. However, since Marner is a free agent in the summer of 2025, it might make sense to move him now. Since the team's loss to the Bruins, the Predators have been linked to Marner. After clearing $26 million in cap space and acquiring another valuable draft pick, Nashville seems well-positioned for a major move.
The Predators have been linked to the Leafs and Mitch Marner in recent weeks (Saros for Marner swap). Nashville is looking to add a prolific offensive player and now have over $26M in cap space to work with this offseason. This certainly opens the door for them to add a $10-$12M player 👀👀

ALSO TAMPA NOW TAKES ON A $7M CONTRACT AND HAVE NOT MADE A MOVE IN SIGNING STEVEN STAMKOS, WHO IS AN UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT Stamkos (UFA) ➡️ #LeafsForever ??? 👀👀👀


A potential deal between the two teams won't be easy, especially with Marner having a no-movement clause. However, if the Predators are interested in acquiring him, all signs point to this being a major possibility in the coming months.
