Fair enough. I didn't find offense to be an issue last season as the Predators had a high GF average and the #1 ranked PP in the league (that Hornqvist was a big part of, btw). I think the issue in the playoffs was not having a true forward that could turn the tide of the game around (we thought it'd be Radulov but he wasn't). I personally don't find Krejci to be that guy (yes, yes I'm aware he led the playoffs in scoring two seasons back). I think that while Fisher - Legwand isn't the desired 1 - 2 punch down the middle, if one of them had a gamebreaking winger, the Predators would be stronger while still holding onto their leading goal scorer in Hornqvist.

I'd be more comfortable packaging Blum+ to get a #1 winger.
