Nashville talking trade with Anaheim for Hiller?
LeBrun: The Predators have given up a ton of goals since Pekka Rinne went down; not really a big surprise. Carter Hutton, kind of an unknown commodity, has not answered the bell so the Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, I’m told, have had discussions regarding Jonas Hiller.
But what the Predators have told the Ducks is that we need to know about Rinne’s health before we decide whether or not we have to make a goalie trade. If they get good news, maybe they could hold off and survive but if it looks like it’s going to be longer than they thought, than maybe they’ll have to make a trade, and Hiller – as we’ve been saying for a month – is very much available from Anaheim.
