Our fans have never had a guy with that electric skill set to cheer for and won't get it with anyone else in the top 10.
Mack, Drouin, and Nichushkin all have that electric skill set you are talking about.

The only worry about Drouin is will his game translate to the NHL well. If he can I can see him being a Patrick Kane type player and that would be awesome.

Nichushkin I think will be a really good NHL player but the Russian aspect I think will make Poile cringe at the thought of drafting him.

Mack is what the Predators need. He can and will be a star center which is really hard to find in the NHL. With Fisher/Legwand/Gaustad being 30+ and the fact we lack a true #1.

We have the goaltender. We have a world class d-man. We now need a world class center to drive a top line. Mack is the man for the job and that is why we need to lose the next 3 games...lol.
