Let trade talk leading up the National Hockey League Entry Draft begin.

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile has reportedly not ruled out trading forward Matt Halischuk and defenseman Jonathon Blum, according to Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean.

Both players are headed for restricted free agency, and have not been sent qualifying offers, as Cooper reported.

Halischuk is at the end of a standard, two-year contract worth $1.425 million, while Blum is at the end of a one-year deal worth $650,000.
