Bob McKenzie had a good point - Nashville, being the only NHL team that Vesey can play for this year, could sign
and play him to burn 1 year off the entry level deal. Quicker path to the $$$$.

That's kind of a double-edged sword though. Vesey's ELC will be 2 years whether he signs with the Preds for this season, or with anyone in the summer. If he burns a year now, he'll have to negotiate his next contract off of one season instead of two. He also won't reach UFA until the summer of 2020 regardless, so it doesn't help him out there.

Welcome to Toronto, bud.

Can the Leafs trade for him and let him burn a year off like Nashville offered to do for him?

If he's really set on signing here, I imagine we'll see a similar deal to how the Leafs picked up Hyman - a depth prospect or a late pick to Nashville so they can say they got something for him. Relationship management and such.

I wonder if we maybe trade them someone like Sam Carrick for his rights. Carrick's a RFA, likely doesn't have any future with the Leafs. I wouldn't even be surprised if they let him walk to open up a contract spot.

Yeah. I doubt Nashville would go along with that phrase here. Maybe stolen money? As in the cash was in the wallet in the back pocket of the Nashville Predators and now it isn't. Lol.

Poile said the reasoning he received was "It was just the attraction of free agency." Poile called it a "complete 360."

So far Poile is saying this:

Poile says he believes Vesey has received bad advice and bad counsel ... #Preds GM says not giving up rights to Vesey until deadline.

David Poile: "I clearly believe that Jimmy has received bad advice and bad counsel."

Exercising his collectively bargained right to hit free agency at the age of 23 is "bad advice"?

Poile is totally going to throw a hissy-fit when he signs in Toronto.

That's anger/spite talking. When cooler heads prevail, he'll prefer to get something in return.
