The replacement is literally mentioned in the post you quoted.
This. It's why I've been saying Tolvanen doesn't need to be involved, but Fiala should be.

Korpisalo. Merzlikins. Vehvilainen. Tarasov.
We're more than fine at goaltending. We don't need to steal Nashville's future in that regard. (Not that Saros would be traded for anything sane in any case...)
Saros is not the younger version of what Rinne once was.
He is a downgrade.
Lol, they have near identical stats for the second year in a row.
Because Rinne is regressing due to his age.
He used to be elite.
Ehh he kinda won the Vezina last year?
Yes, the reigning Vezina trophy winner used to be elite. I see your avatar is a Jet, I'm done arguing with you.
Do not be suprised when he under performs in the playoffs .
Instead of chasing forwards like Panarin the Predators should go after a real goalie.
Dont be surprised if no one takes you serious in the future.
Instead of trying to solve Nashvilles problem, you should find a way to get Laine scoring again.
Laine is still quite young at 20 and not the reason the team wins.
If he was 36 and under performing in our net we would get rid off him asap.
The Preds have 2 "real" goalies. Yes they'll need another at some point but Panarin is easily the top impact forward available in a class that includes Stone and Duchene. He is probably the only high end forward rumored to be potentially on the move that can actually come in and immediately make his new team better.
Rinne wasn't even in the NHL when he was Saros' age. He was in the AHL until he was 26, 3 years older than Saros, and he didn't reach "elite" status until he was nearly 30. Even if we accept, for the sake of argument, that Saros isn't as good as Rinne was at his best, he's only 23 and has many, many years to continue improving. Calling him a downgrade is sort of like calling Patrik Laine a downgrade from Blake Wheeler.
Yeah he did, and honestly he shouldn't have. I was saying this last year, and I'm an outsider. None of the goalies who contended for the Vezina played for my favorite team, but Rinne got the Vezina kiss and was hot/cold yet again in the playoffs. The year before, the Preds beat the Pens is Rinne doesn't let in softies and back-breaking goals.
Rinne is a very good goalie but he has been anything BUT clutch if we're being brutally honest. That said, I don't see the Preds using their trade chips to acquire Bobrovsky. And, if the Preds landed Panarin for some prospects/kids, they would be absolutely scary. Panarin is the type of player who can rip a game wide open by himself.
The Preds have fantastic D, and if you can add Panarin to Forsberg, Arvedsson, Johansson, etc. their offense reaches another level. They already added to physical, character guys which was smart. If they do all of that, they just need Rinne to be rock solid, not spectacular. But he can be letting in softies and back-breakers when it counts the most.
Since when are we that physical? Besides forsberg up front. Our entire second line does very little physical engaging. We need someone who can drive the net, kill penalties and get grimy goals. Stone is a better fit to play alongside Turris and fiala than panarin.
Panarin will almost certainly be testing FA, no?
Makes him a rental.
This just in - "every contender interested in top winger."
He doesn't need to be an elite superstar to still be an excellent goalie good enough to get the team far in the playoffs.
Not to get personal, but this is the most unintelligent thing I've ever read on this site.
It is just honesty.
These two goalies are not taking the Preds to a cup.
Maybe Columbus can throw in Bobrovsky with Panarin.
No, it's stupidity.
The main boards are always good for a laugh.
Not sure if your trying to be funny but they were in the finals two years ago. Nashville doesn't have much of any issues going into the playoffs. Especially at goalie.
Skill you say ? What about
Panarin - O’Reilly - Tarasenko
I like the fit. Yes, I know CBJ might use him as their own rental and Florida's name is coming up but lets pretend Nashville were to acquire. How steep would the price be?
Would it require a good roster player like Fiala? Nashville's 1st + Tolvanen with additional minor piece(s)?
What do you think?
Its somewhere in the Fiala+ 1st/Fiala +1st +Tolv arena. The 1st is close to fair the 2nd is more what Jarmo is looking for as in an overpayment to makenot worth it.
