NHL Rumors: Filip Forsberg, J.T. Miller, and the Top 30 Unrestricted Free Agents
Some teams say Forsberg will re-sign with the Predators

NHL Watcher: Elliotte Friedman on The Jeff Marek Show on Nashville Predators pending UFA forward Filip Forsberg:

“It sounds like there is some momentum there between Nashville and Forsberg, I have teams telling me that’s going to get done on a 8-yr number in the 8’s, and we’ll see if they turn out to be right”.

Rick Dhaliwal: Forsberg’s agent JP Barry: “We are talking about an 8 year deal, not there on the money but will keep grinding away.”

Rutherford on Miller

Rick Dhaliwal: Jim Rutherford on Vancouver Canucks forward J.T. Miller:

“Nothing new, everyone thought he was gone at the deadline. People should not get too ahead of themselves.”
