Nashville Predators feature high-end talent at forward

The Nashville Predators figured to make changes once long-time coach Barry Trotz was replaced and Peter Laviolette was hired. If the addition of veterans like James Neal, Mike Ribeiro, Olli Jokinen and Derek Roy has changed things in the current lineup, the impact that some of the prospects in the pipeline will have could make things really interesting.

General manager David Poile talked about trying to obtain a true No. 1 center during the off-season but when no deal materialized the Predators decided to remain in-house, slotting fourth-year left wing Gabriel Bourque between Neal and Ribeiro to start the year.read more

I never thought I'd see the day when this title wasn't sarcastic.

Excellent, maybe we'll have people stop trying to trade our prime assets for one-dimensional wingers now. Bah, who am I kidding...

Seriously, Poile's done a solid job acquiring some of this talent. Let's hope some of them can develop into legit NHL forwards.

You mean your not excited about trading Jones, Weber, Rinne and 2 firsts for Tayor Hall or Eric Staal? That is the magical #1 centerman we need.

Really just reinforces that winger is not a position of need at this point. Lot of talent at that position in the pipeline.

It will be interesting to see if any of the defensive prospects really stand out this season. Obviously no room for them at the NHL level, but you want to feel like somebody is prepared to make the jump, if needed.

Any news on Diaby? He seems like such a physical beast that he should get a look see at some point.

I thought it was interesting that the article didn't mention Watson. Scored 20 goals or more his first two AHL seasons and has been doing well since being moved to right wing. This year so far in the four games has 3g and 2a. Article states that right wing is a weaker position spot for the organization so thought they would mention him. I might have missed it but I don't think the article mentioned Aberg either which I also thought was curious as he has also been playing well.

It did mention Aberg as one of the left wings.
