Legwand played with Ward and Smithson. That's our checking line.
I want to see more of the Legwand we saw in the playoffs then the one we saw during the regular season. I'd also like to see Legwand playing with some guys that can actually handle the puck as to increase their offensive chances.
The Predators have been looking for the Legwand that played in the playoffs for some time now. Legwand is not a legit scorer. It doesn't matter if they put him on the top line he's not the scorer you think he is. When he played Kariya he had a fluke year. Kariya then made a lot of players look good. I don't buy the fact that he needs better linemates. Trotz has tried to put him with other linemates and it doesn't work. I'm sure that playing with Smithson didn't help. Everytime that he puts him on a line with Erat it doesn't work. Legwand seemed to have chemistry with Ward and then with Dumont. Keep holding your breath about Legwand putting up big numbers offensively and you'll be posting from the hospital after passing out.
