what other options do we have? free agency? we oughta go ahead and name july to "National Nashville Predators Disappointment Month".. trade market is always scarce.. best option is go with lineup i posted or hope we can get a nice addition from a team in cap trouble...
*also, disagree about including wilson in your post
Wilson should be fine, but has yet to put up even 40 points in a season. He should definitely be in a top 6 role next season, but I would hope that the time it has taken for him to develop would illustrate what should be expected of guys like Forsberg and Beck. Anybody expecting them to jump into a top 6 role, draw other team's tough assignments, and put up the 40-50 points one should expect of a top 6 forward is setting themselves up for disappointment. The team needs to add at least one top 6 capable forward in the off-season, be it through trade or free agency.
I have no doubts as to the quality of this team's management, or even coaching, going forward, but I have serious reservations as to their talent, and relying so heavily upon unproven players..
