The Nashville Predators were involved in an unusual trade today. Former Milwaukee Admirals defenseman Alexander Sulzer was traded to the Florida Panthers for a conditional seventh round pick.
Predators General Manager David Poile must be clearing roster and cap space, because otherwise this trade makes little sense.
Nashville may not even get anything back in the deal (not even the $1 in the Ray Sheppard trade from a few decades back), because the Predators will only receive a Panthers seventh-round pick if Sulzer appears on the Florida’s Reserve List during the 2011-12 season. If not, there is nothing in return, not even some Zamboni gasoline or a used puck bag.
