Plus there has been rumors that he would sign with the GSHC of the Swiss League.. Wait and see!
The defensive responsibilities with the Predators falls more on the centers, not wingers. Wingers can't chase the puck all around the zone like Radulov or have huge turnovers in the neutral zone like Wilson early on.
