We're in at #7. Since they never re-evaluated our prospects from last year, I'm not sure I understand how we dropped from 3. Whatever.

7. Nashville Predators

Strengths: Nashville boasts some of the best depth in the NHL, with quality players at every position. Taylor Beck, Austin Watson, and Michael Latta can chip in offense and play a gritty two-way game. Many top prospects such as Blake Geoffrion and Craig Smith have already proven themselves at the NHL level. Ryan Ellis and Jonathon Blum are amongst a talented group of blue liners on the cusp of being NHL ready. The combination of Anders Lindback and Jeremy Smith in net rivals almost any other system.
Weaknesses: Despite the glut of quality prospects, Nashville lacks top-tier goal-scoring forward. Several high drafted prospects such as Charles-Olivier Roussel and Zach Budish have not developed as expected.
Top 5 Prospects: 1. Jonathon Blum, D, 2. Taylor Beck, LW, 3. Ryan Ellis, D, 4. Austin Watson, RW, 5. Roman Josi, D.
Lost to Graduation: Matt Halischuk,
Lost to Trade: Taylor Stefishen.
