Predators trade former Admiral Alexander Sulzer for a Used Puck Bag

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.

Curious stuff, your thoughts Roundtable?

  1. A series of odd moves. Putting svatos and belak on waivers while sullivan goes on the IR. Do we have any news on a geoffrion call up?

  2. Florida is becoming milwaukee admiral south with santos, sulzer, hugh, and grant, time will only tell if any others end up there……. any news on klassen injury?

  3. Poproc, I agree. Sulzer was a solid player, especially in Milwaukee. Wish Nashville would have at least tried for a 5th or 6th round pick…
