Draft Offense? Nay, Preds should take Defender Darnell Nurse in the first round

After a season marred with underperforming offense, a franchise record losing streak and 8 shutouts and counting, it is clear that the Predators are struggling upfront.

Top Defenceman

A little over a week ago I picked Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators as the top defenceman so far this season.  He is a very talented defenceman who had come into form after a slow start and was moving up into the top scoring defencemen this season while maintaining his top defensive play in a tough situation.  Since that time Weber has gone -4 with no points scored.  When...
