It has been an up and down start for the Nashville Predators to begin the new season. They hold a record of 9-9-2. Nashville hasn't been able to generate enough goals, currently ranked 29th in the league in this department. They may look outside the organization for some more offence fire power.

Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reports that Nashville GM David Poile would like to move a defenseman, suggesting that Dante Fabbro could be had for the right price.
The 24-year-old locked down a regular role in 2019-20, logging over 19 minutes a game and it looked as if the Predators had found yet another quality young defender that they could mold into a core piece. However, he hasn't really progressed much since then. His playing time continued to hover around the 19-minute mark until this season as it's down to just 16 minutes a night while he has just four assists in 19 games.
His role dipped to that of a number six defenseman on the depth chart. Paying $2.4 million AAV isn't the best value for that place in the lineup.
Fabbro will be owed a qualifying offer this summer at that same price point while also being arbitration-eligible and if he rides out the season in the role he has now, he could very well be a non-tender candidate in the summer. Accordingly, moving him now might make sense.
