Report: Nashville Unlikely To Trade Dan Hamhuis

After several credible rumors said yesterday that the Nashville Predators were close to a deal that would send defenseman Dan Hamhuis to Philadelphia, it appears that, as of now, general manager David Poile will hold on to the 27-year-old soon-to-be free agent.

From Tim Panaccio at CSN Philadelphia:

“Three teams have made offers on Hamhuis, and they have not been accepted,” said a source close to the situation. “Dan wants to stay in Nashville. At this point, it looks like the Predators are going to keep him.”

The sources said that Poile told three clubs – believed to be the Flyers, Boston and either New Jersey or Toronto – that unless someone “knocks his socks off,” he would not move Hamhuis.

Nashville has inquired about [Flyers defenseman] Ryan Parent but likely wants something else that the Flyers don’t have: a draft pick.

“Nashville is in more of listening mode,” the source said. “The feeling is, they’ve turned the Flyers and everyone else down. There are reports out there saying it’s close, but that’s not the case. There doesn’t appear to be a deal close to being completed with anyone.

Will somebody knock Poile's socks off? We'll know by 3 PM Eastern on Wednesday, that's for sure.
