VIDEO: Poile talks Ryan Suter, Gaustad, Gill and the return of Chris Mason

BANNER - Media Availability Day - Poile (6-21-11)

Nashville Predators General Manager David Poile held a press conference at Bridgestone Arena today at 5:00pm Central. ┬áThe full video, courtesy of the team’s official website, is below.

You’ll notice that the optimistic┬álanguage Poile used to describe the Ryan Suter situation in months past is glaringly absent. You’ll also notice that he is ready to make a “firm offer” and then move on if necessary, a far cry from the “loyalty” we’ve heard about as recent as the NHL Draft.

Of course, Poile also talks about the re-signing of Paul Gaustad and Hal Gill as well as the inking of back-up goaltender Chris Mason this afternoon.
