If it's an emergency callup, Shalla.

I could see Thang and Beck given shots if it's someone on the 3rd or 4th lines that gets injured.

Thang went to Germany.

Daniel Bang and Juuso Puustinen are also options for depth call-ups.

IMHO Beck makes it this season.

Breakout player of the year though is Halischuk. He scored 15 goals with 4th line minutes and only averaging 5 seconds of powerplay time per game.

He also only played in 73 games and his pairings were always weak.

I could see Halischuk on the 2nd line. Remember he's a 2nd rd. pick an dwas traded for Arnott.

Looking at these lines, how many games do you think McGrattan will get. Another 30?
40?
50?
60?

Okay, 50 and 60 may be a litle high, but there's enough tough teams out there that I think he'll get 35-45 this year. He has an amazing fighting ability and his play was surprisingly 12th-forwardish. He's definetly someone you want on y

I think he will get 25 games or so as the bottom forward on the roster.

I think the threat of being able to put McGrattan in the line up is better than actually having him in the line up. The ability to put him in there keeps teams from taking too many liberties. They know he'll be in the next game to make people answer for what they did in the last match up. He'll probably start ~20 games if the roster stays healthy.

I like it. A playmaker in Wilson, a sniper in Smith and a worker in Halischuk.

but we also aren't overpaying for a golfer on the back 9 either. I'd like to have him but not at his asking price.

You never know...they have a chance.

Predators Coach Barry Trotz said he has been in touch with Phoenix Coyotes free agent forward Shane Doan recently. Doan is considered the last remaining prime unrestricted free agent on the market. Trotz coached Doan at the 2009 IIHF world championships. Trotz was an assistant on that team.

“I’ve been in contact with Shane Doan almost a month now. I keep in contact with him,” Trotz said. “To be quite honest I hope everything gets resolved in Phoenix and he retires as a Phoenix Coyote, but if it doesn’t, I know Nashville is on his short list.”

Looks like Wilson is gonna have a first chance to prove himself as a center in Nashville

We caught up with Colin Wilson earlier. Sounds like #preds will try him out at C at camp http://tnne.ws/NebDyf #nhl
I like it, we need new Top 6 centers after Fisher and Leggy are gone in a few years, but i think Smith would be the better option

if Wilson makes it as a center, that's actually great news because it means his game has progressed enough for Trotz to trust him with playing up the middle. I know that shifting him to wing was a move to maximize our assets and protect Wilson during his development, but I also feel like it delayed the possibility of him becoming a #1 center which he had potential for. Hopefully he still does, I still think that on overall talent Wilson is better than Smith. We'd be set for years if these two can develop into #1 and #2 centers, and have Legwand and Fisher take the bottom two spots (on smaller contracts and if they accept the role) as they age.

We have a lot of centers now. Gaustad, Legwand, Fisher, Spaling, Wilson, and Smith. I think Fisher, Gaustad, and now Wilson are locks. I bet Smith is guarenteed to move to wing. That leaves Spaling and Leggy going for the last C spot. Personally, I'd love to see Legwand at wing.

Erat-Fisher-SK
Hornqvist-Wilson-Leggy
Smith-Spaling-Bourque
Halischuk-Gaustad-Yip

If Smith progresses, switch him and Horny or SK (whoever is playing worse). If we sign Doan, SK goes to line 2 in Horny's spot, Horny goes to Bourque's spot, and Bourque goes to Yip's spot.

What? Wilson is about the farthest thing from a lock as you could imagine. Couldn't cut it defensively as a winger towards the end of last year, yet he's a lock at center? You got all of this from "...Sounds like #preds will try him out at C at camp."?

I would honestly suspect that Spaling moves to LW if Wilson is moved to C and that they play on the same line. Legwand is too valuable as a match up center.

Kostitsyn - Fisher - Erat
Smith - Legwand - Hornqvist
Spaling - Wilson - Bourque
Halischuk - Gaustad - Yip

Seth's lines seem to fall more in line with what Trotz likes. Spaling and Bourgue play good enough defense to cover up for Wilson. Legwand covers for smith and Hornqvist, Smith brings some speed and puck skills to that line. Each line has some net presence on it too.

I actually thought Wilson played better defensively as a center than he has as a winger. It's a big difference. As a center you're coming back down low to help out where his size can be more of a bonus. You're assisting the d-men and covering another forward instead of staying near the point to cover one of their d-men. I think that fits Wilson's skill set better. And he would give the team some more size up the middle, too. He's a fairly large guy. Not huge by NHL standards, but big.

Still looks like a playoff team to me with Weber and co in D and Rinne in the net.

I agree that will most likely be the lineup even though I'm sure they'll be juggled. I know they need to try Wilson at center but I think the lineup would be offensively most effective as

SK Fisher Erat
Wilson Legwand Smith
Bourque Spaling Hornqvist
Yip Gaustad Halischuk

While I liked SLake's lines, these look even better to me. I really like the makeup of the third line. Something tells me those three will thrive together. All of them work hard and are tenacious. I like the first two lines too.
