Nashville Predators general manager David Poile joined NHL Live to discuss what's next for the organization and his plans for the 2014 NHL Draft.
The Predators own the No. 11 pick of the 2014 draft, which begins June 27 (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN) at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Nashville finished the regular season 38-32-12 and failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
"I've made it known that we're trying to improve our forwards," Poile said. "We'd like to get a top-six forward if we could. If we can do that in a trade, that would be great. If that took trading a draft pick, or even our first pick, I would be open to that. I've made it known to a lot of teams that if they were willing to trade a top forward, I'd be willing to trade the No. 11 pick in the draft."
