Nashville Predators - All Time Team?

Just for fun:


Martin Erat - David Legwand - Paul Kariya
Jean Pierre Dumont - Cliff Ronning - Steve Sullivan
Scott Walker - Jason Arnott - Patric Hornqvist
Scott Hartnell - Greg Johnson - Patric Kjellberg

Shea Weber - Kimmo Timmonen
Marek Zidlicky - Dan Hamhuis
Roman Josi - Karlis Skrastins


Tomas Vokoun
Pekka Rinne



(All in their prime)


How would this team do in todays NHL?

"How can you have him with ..." and "Why do you not pick ..." I look forward to a scary aha experience of having missed the big names that should have been included.

Feel free to make your own all-time team....

you left out Suter on defense. He bumps Timonen tothe second pair with hamhuis and Zids and Josi as 3rd pair with Skrastins as the extra defenseman

and even though Johnson was an icon here I would probably want No-Panic Yanic Perreault as my fourth line center for PK's and faceoffs and Vern Fiddler instead of Kjellberg for the same reason

and if you are implying that Vokoun in his prime starts ahead of Rinne in his prime we will have to agree to disagree

Yeah, his time here was short but Peter Forsberg is going to top our list of centers.

Kariya - Forsberg - Sullivan
Dumont - Arnott - Radulov
Hartnell - Legwand - Hornqvist
Erat - Fisher - Ronning

Enforcer line
Grimson - Belak - McGrattan
pest line
Tootoo-Nystrom-Walker

Weber - Suter
Timonen - Josi
Hamhuis - Zidlicky

Rinne
Vokoun

Nice thread these are always fun, heres my go:

Kariya - Forsberg - Radulov
Dumont - Arnott - Sullivan
Hartnell - Legwand - Hornqvist
Erat - Perreault - Walker
Gaustad


Suter - Weber
Timonen - Zidlicky
Hamhuis - Jones (yep that's right)
Josi

Rinne
Vokoun

Honorable Mentions: Kevin Klein, Greg Johnson, Karlis Skrastins, Mike Fisher, Craig Smith, Mike Dunham, Tootoo.

The defense was harder than I thought it would be, I know we are considered a team that develops defense, but man I feel like we don't get enough recognition.

No list is complete without Billy Houlder on the defense.

No speculation.

Scott Hartnell-David Legwand-Martin Erat
Paul Kariya-Jason Arnott-Steve Sullivan
Vitali Yachmenev-Greg Johnson-Scott Walker
Sergei Kostitsyn-Cliff Ronning-J.P. Dumont

Patric Hornqvist, Mike Fisher and (just to tick off Abaddon) Patric Kjellberg

Shea Weber-Kimmo Timonen
Ryan Suter-Marek Zidlicky
Dan Hamhuis-Drake Berehowsky

Roman Josi

And...

Pekka Rinne/Tomas Vokoun (which, if you think about it, could very well be a possible goalie combo in the future if the Pens don't re-sign Vokie, and Hutton is traded for prospects...)

Captain would be a fight between Weber and Johnson. Weber deserves the C, though. Walker would be the second A.

I'd say they were about even, maybe I'd go 1. Hammy 2.Josi 3. Zidlicky at the moment. I often forget how good Zidlicky was for us offensively at least. I think the biggest factor is longevity, but in a season or two Josi could be considered the better of the three.

Josi last season was better than either were for Nashville in a single season. Only Weber, Suter and Timonen had better individual seasons.

Offensively, Zidlicky was better but Josi played better in both ends.

Oh, don't go into single-seasons. I couldn't figure that one out.

The one person who I think is incredibly under-rated in Preds history is Vitali Yachmenev. He was a great talent for this team when it was trying to gain its legs. I think he ended up being lost in the great purge that happened after The Season From Hell (aka 2002-03), and didn't get a chance to play for the Preds in the playoffs.

Rinne Vokoun are the goalies.

Defense, Sweet jesus what a problem to have. Can we have a 30 man roster and man 5 pairings?

Forward. Depends on if you count Forsberg's cup of coffee....

I'd love to see Vokoun brought back but I doubt it very seriously with his blood clot issues. I know they have it under control for now but man, that's some scary stuff.

sorry Joe but those expansion era guys only looked good because they were on a bad team. If Yach had been that good someone else would have picked him up but he washed out of the league when his time in nashville was over. (plus he maxed out at 16 goals… not exactly "all-time" material)

and Rake Barelyhockey was good but not anywhere near top 6 all time for this franchise.

Top 4 on my defense set in stone and that leaves timonen with hamhuis or Zidlicky and I'm a fan of RHD with LHD . And hamhuis slammed us a bit when leaving so looks good to me.

Not a large enough body of work for Jonesy to be included at the moment, IMNSHO.

The other thing you need to realize, Doc, is that Yachy was getting a bit on the old side in '03. Yeah, he played six-seven more seasons in the KHL, but that was the KHL.

Are we going like prime of all time sort of deal, or what they did for the team? Sure, Forsberg was one of the best talents we've ever seen, but only played 17 games for us.

He makes the first list no doubt, he'd make the Flyers and Avalanche's list as well, but the second, what they did for the team, can you really add him reasonably?

I doubt we retire 21 in his honor, though. 21 was Fitzy's number.

I seriously doubt anyone even considered retiring his jersey.

For the record, I hate the idea of retiring any number, ever.

To be able to wear the same number as your idols growing up should be option.
