Predators History

Nashville GM David Poile is known for his superb drafting, selecting the likes of David Legwand, Shea Weber, Pekka Rinne, Ryan Suter, and Scott Hartnell. While Poile has seen great success in many of his picks, he has also seen failure. Here are the five biggest Nashville Predators draft busts.

Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators were flying high in October. They were scoring goals at a franchise-record pace, leading to some exciting hockey with them piling up wins along the way. However, with the Predators losing their last six games and dropping eight of their last 10, those good times seem to be a distant memory. Related: Predators’ One Month Check-Up During the Predators’ slide, they have suffered losses as bad as 9-4 to the Colorado Avalanche on Nov. 7 and 7-2 to the rebuilding Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 16. There are flashes where the offence appears to still be in existence, but it’s not coming with the same amount of ease as it used to.
