Predators to acquire McLeod
Nashville Predators buys Cody McLeod from the New York Rangers for a 7th round in 2020.
Bob McKenzie: "NSH adds depth / grit, given the indefinite absence of Austin Watson:"
Ryan Boulding: "While everyone will analyze the impact or lack of it that McLeod will let a team go and join another, the movement is the best for him. His wife and daughters have lived in Nashville when Avs acted there while playing with NYR. "
Ryan Boulding: "He said it hadn't been easy to live so far away from them. Long breaks and bye weeks were spent traveling back to Nashville to be with his family. He would not upset them again and move them to NYC when he was relied on for exceptions last season. "
John Glennon: "Interestingly moving … Don't expect McLeod to get lots of ice age, but I think this team desperately needed a size and a physical game. Got a double dose. Two very good lockers too."
