What could have been

Ignoring salary/who wanted to leave/etc., construct the best Preds team you can from player who have played here. This is the best CURRENT team, so guys like Kariya and FoPa are too old. All players have their current skill level.

Hartnell-Fisher-Erat
SK-Legwand-Radulov
Hornqvist-Peverley-AK
Wilson-Gaustad-Smith
Bourque

(Hali/Spals/Arnott/COR/Tootoo/Wardo missed the cut)

Weber-Suter
Timonen-Hamhuis
Josi-Klein
Zidlicky

Rinne
Vokoun

Who am I forgetting? I'm sure there is someone.

I would say Sully but he's probably too old as well.

Thought about him, but at this point, who does he replace? Maybe a 13th forward as a mentor, but he's getting old.

Not sure about including Pevs. Sure, he went on to do well in a more offensive system, but wasn't he really bad in the defense first system?

I'm not sure about including AK either, though I'm not knowledgeable about the Preds history, so I'm not sure who to replace him with.

I think it would be reasonable to replace AK with Bourque and have sully as the 13th forward.

Pevs didnt do so well here, its true, so an alternative would be to have spaling as the third line center, or else Smith as 3C and keep AK and Bourque as wings and have Sully as the 13th forward

Our forwards aren't much different than our current group (+Hartnell, Pevs, and Rads), but our D and goalies...we wouldn't give up a goal.
