Barry Trotz rips his fellow NHL general managers

Barry didn't hold back!



The upcoming National Hockey League Trade Deadline is expected to be busy, with several players said to be on the market and expected to have new surroundings by Friday afternoon. Among the players who are expected to be moved include Jake Guentzel, Alex Wennberg, Jason Zucker, Noah Hanifin, Pavel Buchnevich, and plenty of others.

In fact, one trade has already been completed, with the Washington Capitals sending forward Anthony Mantha to the defending Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights earlier this evening.

But for Nashville Predators general manager Barry Trotz, who is in his first year on the job after having previously served as the longtime coach of the franchise, he's finding out that there is a steep cost to acquiring players. He made no secret about the fact that he's not exactly pleased with some of the asking prices that he's been getting.

"The prices are ridiculous for what general managers are asking for players, for rentals and all that," Trotz opined. "But I'm a rookie GM. I don't know a whole lot."

The Trade Deadline is March 8, and all deals must be completed by 3:00 PM EST. The Predators are red hot right now, having won eight straight games and going for their 9th in a row when they bring in the visiting Montreal Canadiens to Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville.
