Elliotte Friedman has just taken everyone by surprise by stating that the Nashville Predators are planning to buy out Matt Duchene's contract.

Wow! It seems that several teams are using this strategy to shed certain contracts as the opening of free agency approaches.

"Barry Trotz continues to make very bold decisions. Duchene had three years remaining on the contract that the Predators are buying out." - Chris Johnston, TSN

There is no doubt that the 32-year-old forward will become a highly sought-after target tomorrow, considering he amassed 43 goals and 43 assists (86 points!!!) in the 2021-2022 season. He also had a solid season this year with 56 points in 71 games.


Will the rumors linking Matt Duchene to the Canadiens reignite in the coming hours?
