OK but if this is going to be an appreciation thread it should stay that way. We have another thread or two in which people can bemoan Legwand's time here.

First ever draft pick by us, you played at least a game in every single season we ever had. 2014-15 is going to suck starting without you as a member for first time ever.

You will be greatly missed David, and thank you so much for everything you have done for us and all the memories you made here. I look forward to number 11 hanging from the rafters here one day.

Good luck in Detroit, looking forward to seeing you here again, even if it's in white and red. I guess your home now brother.

Goodbye Mr.Predator,

absolutely crazy how many players on that team are no longer here…


this is my favorite Legwand moment




wherever he ends up next year, the tribute video when he comes back will have a lot of great moments in it..

I have a weird feeling especially with Poile saying Legwand was loyal to the end. I am actually sad about losing Leggy.

Regardless, he was the best forward in franchise history and will likely have the records for many years.

I wish him the best of luck.

Thanks for not doing the Preds like Suter Leggy.

Wings got a good player who will get them in the playoffs if they can get some guys healthy.

It was time to get younger and move on. Good luck in Hockeytown

I kind of envy this fanbase; we lost our last original Blue Jacket years ago when Klesla was traded. Wanted to see Legwand stay for that reason alone, even though I was blithely ignoring the Preds for the majority of their existence.

Funny parallels between him and Klesla, though; both were players drafted high that were expected to be franchise cornerstones that instead turned out to not meet the hype (and get hated for it) but still be extremely effective regardless.

That said, I can't wish him luck for the time being, as Detroit is wildcard competition. Once we're past that, tho... all the best.

Never thought I'd say this, but I'm officially rooting for the Red Wings at least for the rest of the season. I always liked Legwand and I'll miss him. Thanks for all the memories 11, best of luck in Motown.

She said she nearly cancelled class, and if it weren't a once-a-week, 3 hour class she would have. And she only moved from Canada to TN six years ago. Just an example of how much David meant to some Preds fans. Hell, to a lot of Preds fans.

I'll be rooting for the Wings for the rest of the season and into the play offs because I want to see Leggy go as far as he can.

One thing is for sure, there has never been more of an emotional attachment to a player.

I created Jason Arnott and Martin Erat appreciation thread and many were kicking them on the way out.

Legwand's first NHL goal was probably his best NHL goal. I can't find the YT. If someone does, please post it.

It was time to move on, but Legwand has been great for this organization. Consummate Predators. He's one of those guys that I hope hits UFA in a few years, we sign him for 500K, then he retires a Predator. Thanks for the memories Leggy!

My favorite memory is probably the New Baby Hat Trick. As I recall, he was with wife at the hospital, Baby born, and wife tells him he should probably get on back to work. So he gets back to the arena in the nick of time and then goes on to get a hattie.

There was also some sort of score vs his new team in an early playoff game that seems to jog a memory.

And there was no one else who Kariya could deflect pucks off like he could deflect them off of you.

Yeah, David, I ragged on you (honest it was usually just negative mojo) but I am sad to see you go. I wish you well in Detroit.

I understand that it was the right move, but it's still painful. Was never the player he was drafted to be, but still turned into a consistent, valuable cornerstone. Will miss him.

I feel like the preds traded away our born first preds player,since leggy was the first ever draft pick for the franchise.one of my most fondest merories of david legwand was that letter he wrote as a tribute to wade belak


THANKS FOR EVERYTHING LEGGY,when you decide to retire,sign a one day contract with the preds,so you can retire as a Nashville Predator

The official end of an era. I knew this day would come eventually, but it's still kind of shocking with him not being on the roster. He should be the first predator whose number hangs from the rafters.

What number will he wear with Detroit.

I remember his first game as a Predator and how excited we all were that he played.
