, one of the Predators' top defensemen, is reportedly on the trade block and is currently in talks with other teams.
Barrie Speaking With Other Teams
Insider Elliotte Friedman dropped some major news this morning regarding the future of defenseman Tyson Barrie
There is word today the Nashville Predators have given Tyson Barrie
permission to talk to other teams. Barrie is expected to be a scratch vs the Rangers and is a UFA after this season. This allows team and player to see if there is a better fit elsewhere
Barrie is currently in the final year of his contract and could be used as a solid rental for many teams looking to compete in the playoffs.
What Barrie Brings To A Team
Barrie is mainly known as a powerplay specialist from the blueline. He has scored 25+ powerplay points in a season multiple times and even has a season with over 30 powerplay points.
While he may not be the best defensively, he is able to hold his own better than other powerplay specialists like John Klingberg
or Tony DeAngelo. If a team is able to find a spot for Barrie on their top powerplay unit, he could prove to be invaluable in a deep playoff run.
