Our top offensive threat barely cracks the 100-mark.

Erat was the best forward last year, sat 63rd in the league. Erat again the year before, 95th in the league. Go back one more year and its Hornqvist sitting at 91st in the league.

The homegrown forwards always have fit the blue-collar approach Poile and Trotz adhere to. Top forwards in this league are in a complete class above any player Nashville has drafted.
