The Preds have not been very active on the free agent market, only signing Ben Guite to a deal is the biggest UFA signing on their roster sheet below.

|Jason Arnott||Ryan Suter||Dan Ellis|
|Martin Erat||Dan Hamhuis|
|David Legwand||Kevin Klein|
Being a team without much activity on the market means that their overall cap number is low and it's really low at the moment. The 15 players listed above don't even reach the cap floor, sitting at $38.2 million. They aren't very far away from the cap floor, so reaching it in signing eight players won't be an issue, it's just where they stand at the moment.
Key RFAs still to sign for the Predators include Ryan Jones and Antti Pihlstrom, both players figured into more than 45 games each last season.
