RFA Colin Wilson is seen as part of Nashville's future, according to GM David Poile.
"Four years, something like that, probably makes sense" Poile said when discussing potential contract length. Wilson, who is entering his seventh season and age-27 season, is coming off his best career season. With 20 goals and 42 points, he also set highs in shots on goal (172) and time on ice (1248). Wilson's coming off a three-year contract worth $6M as well, and the Predators are $10.644M under the cap with just 14 players signed. It's easy to imagine Wilson getting a nice bump in pay this summer. Jun 12 - 8:25 PM

Colin Wilson is due for a sizable pay raise this summer, as a restricted free agent.

He hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in 2014-15 and he posted a personal best 42 points in 77 games. Wilson also potted five goals in six playoff matches against Chicago. The 25-year-old forward is starting to show flashes of the potential that made him the seventh overall pick in 2008 and the Predators will probably reward that.

"I do not want to take anything away from them because they played hard, got in behind our defense and forechecked. In the NHL, you cannot take a game off, and that is kind of what we did for the first 40 minutes."
