Honorable Mention

The top-five was pretty clear, but there are several other defenseman in team history that deserve a shout out. First off, Ryan Suter came very close to making the list over Ekholm.

More from Predlines

Suter left on bad terms and the fanbase will probably never forgive him for it. However, he was a force to be reckoned with alongside Weber for a few seasons.

P.K. Subban wasn’t here nearly long enough to make the top-five, but man was it a fun ride while he was here, including the trip to the Stanley Cup Final and his initial arrival when he went onto Lower Broadway and into the honkey tonks.

It was really tough to see Seth Jones shipped off. If he’s still playing for the Predators, he’s easily in the top-five over Ekholm.

We have to show some love to Marek Zidlicky, a player who joined the Predators for the 2003-04 season and put up 53 points in 82 games and added 35 points on the power play. Only old school Predators fans remember Zidlicky and his importance.

Finally, let’s also show some love to Kevin Klein. A player that stuck around for a while ( nine seasons with Nashville) and put up 716 blocks and 518 hits for the Predators.
