Carter Hutton sounds like he wants to test unrestricted free agency.
"Carter (Hutton) sees signing with the Predators as a little bit of a dead end to his career," said GM David Poile. "It's not over yet, but that's probably the way Carter is leaning. I have a hard time arguing against that." Nashville announced the re-signing of Marek Mazanec on Monday and he could be the team's backup goalie next year. Jun 13 - 11:57 AM

I love Nashville. I want to be in Nashville, so hopefully we can figure something out here to make me stay." He went 7-5-4 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 17 appearances in 2015-16. Nashville is also interested in keeping him around.
