The departed: how the Preds who left this offseason are doing

We can update this as the season goes...but I figured we should take a look at how last year's Preds are doing on other teams...and compare that to how well their replacements are faring now.

The departed:

Marcel Goc - C - Florida - 17 GP - 2G - 0A - 2P - even - 2 PIM - 16:53 ATOI

Joel Ward - RW - Washington - 18 GP - 4G - 3A - 7P - +4 - 6 PIM - 14:13 ATOI

Steve Sullivan - LW - Pittsburgh - 20 GP - 1G - 7A - 8P - (-1) - 4 PIM - 17:28 ATOI

J.P. Dumont - LW - (no team, no stats)

Shane O'Brien - D - Colorado - 20 GP - 0G - 7A - 7P - +2 - 33 PIM - 19:11 ATOI

Cody Franson - D - Toronto - 6 GP - 1G - 2A - 3P - (-3) - 2 PIM - 17:08 ATOI

**Matthew Lombardi - C - Toronto - 19 GP - 2G - 4A - 6P - (-7) - 2 PIM - 13:10 ATOI


The replacements:

Craig Smith - C - 19 GP - 7G - 8A - 15P - (-1) - 12 PIM - 15:34 ATOI

Matt Halischuk - RW - 19 GP - 5G - 2A - 7P - +3 - 18 PIM - 13:46 ATOI

Blake Geoffrion - LW - 18 GP - 0G - 2A - 2P - even - 13 PIM - 10:41 ATOI

Niclas Bergfors - RW - 11 GP - 1G - 1A - 2P - (-2) - 2 PIM - 8:04 ATOI

Jonathon Blum - D - 19 GP - 1G - 2A - 3P - (-9) - 4 PIM - 18:24 ATOI

Jack Hillen - D - 17 GP - 0G - 3A - 3P - +1 - 12 PIM - 12:31 ATOI

**Mike Fisher - C - 11 GP - 3G - 6A - 9P - even - 2 PIM 18:44 ATOI

**Obviously Lombardi was injured for 98% of last season...essentially Mike Fisher is his replacement. Fisher, being a vet, doesn't exactly fit in with the "out with the old, in with the new" that applies to most of this. Nonetheless, he's still sort of a "new" Pred.



Stats don't tell the complete story, of course, but they give you an idea of where those guys stand on the other teams. I've really only seen Sully and Wardo in game action. Both seem to have found their spots on those teams, and I certainly wish them well (when they aren't playing us ). Sully had some injury issues, but he looks good this year. I hated to let Ward go, but he was getting too expensive for what he brings for us. I actually miss SOB, too. Hillen is doing pretty well, but I think SOB would've been a better option to keep.

How do you think the replacements have done? (Obviously Smith has been awesome...) Did the Preds make good moves by letting some of these guys go or trading them?
