The Nashville Predators were perceived to have a weakness at Left Wing last season- we take a look at how that may change during the offseason as we break down the position.
Though the Left Wing position holsters the Predator’s brightest young star in the form of 21-year-old Filip Forsberg, the four spots down the left side of the roster were often pointed to by media and fans as the weakest link of the team.
