During his meeting with reporters ahead of the entry draft, the executive mentioned that the parties involved had grown closer. The 27-year-old skater is eligible for full free agency, having received an eight-year contract offer, Poile told NHL.com about two weeks ago.

“We talk to each other daily. There's a due date coming up, so it's certainly very important to us and it's surely the case for them as well. Both parties have said from the start that we would like to reach a solution. Hopefully we can move forward,” explained the DG on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Nashville has some interesting cards in its game, including the ability to submit an eight-year proposal, unlike other clubs that could present it with offers for up to seven years starting July 13. However, negotiations are always synonymous with compromise and in this case the club will probably have to include no-trade and no-move clauses.

"We don't like it, but Forsberg was clear about that in the talks and it will be part of the contract," admitted Poile.

During the 2021-2022 season, the Swede amassed 42 goals and as many assists for 84 points in 69 games, setting personal bests in all three offensive categories. He dominates the history of the concession with 220 nets.
