Another potential late-season reinforcement for the Preds, although this time it's not Radulov.

Vesey's the perfect example of a green player who was allowed to flourish in Harvard thanks to patient management. Imagine that.

Vesey will be staying in Harvard for his senior year.

Representatives for Jimmy Vesey today informed NSH their client will be exercising his right to unrestricted free agency on Aug. 15. #TSN


Vesey passes up a chance at the playoffs to presumably join his dad and the cellar dwelling Leafs this offseason.

Poile is mad:

Vesey told Paul Fenton prior to the Trade Deadline that he was going to sign with us. #Preds


Seems pretty clear Vesey is going to sign with the Leafs, who employ his father and drafted his brother. Obviously tampering has gone on. The league will definitely let this slide, though.

Like the Mike Reilly situation. He went to go play for his part-owner dad in Minny.

But would the Harvard folks keep Nashville away from him if the tampering was done by the Leafs? I would think they'd be concerned about being pulled into the middle of it all if they blocked a visit. They'd be better off letting them meet & saying they had nothing to do with any decisions he makes on his own.

I would more suspect he is homeward bound for Boston than going to the Leafs.

Chris Nilan is a good friend of the family. Helped Sr. land in Toronto. His two cents: It's a business, TO hiring his dad won't sway him.

Hey, Chris, put in a good word about Montreal!

I've recall this guys name being in the upcoming FA talk since the fall with Leaf fans near counting him a Leaf already.( :lol: ) But hey sure Nashville has been blindsided by this.

Rights to Vesey traded to BUF for a 3rd rounder. Sabres have until Aug. 15 to sign him.

With the young centers there he would be a great fit for them. Hope they can make a case for it.
