The Nashville Predators will someday have some numbers hanging from their rafters.
Both the Nashville Predators and the NHL have had an interesting offseason, to say the least. The hockey world experienced the loss of Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, and the retiring of the ever so elusive Pavel Datsyuk. Then there was a recent blockbuster trade of longtime fan favorite and Captain Shea Weber for P.K. Subban.
For me, those events became an equation in my head where I started to think about the great players that have worn that saber tooth tiger on their chest for The Nashville Predators.

Gordie Howe is only one of the retired numbers that hang above the ice for The Detroit Red Wings, and I can’t imagine Datsyuk won’t be an addition to that already decorated ceiling. Right now Nashville doesn’t have any retired numbers hanging above, and sadly they don’t have any Cup banners either, but both of those could change in the near future.
With an improved team that may well compete for The Stanley Cup, let’s take a look at some players who I believe could have their numbers retired by The Nashville Predators. With that being said, I won’t be choosing the youngsters like Roman Josi and Filip Forsberg. I believe they both will join my list in the future, but they are still young and have a lot of years ahead of them.
