This past offseason saw the Nashville Predators lose a lot of players. Some were way easier to see let go than others.

Seeing the new-look Nashivlle Predators skate onto the ice for the season-opener offered hope for a fresh start, but also some weird feelings of uncertainty.

As the new NHL season is over two weeks in, the Predators are managing to stay right in the thick of a crowded Central Division race. It remain to be seen if GM David Poile made the right moves in the offseason to let some key players go.

The more this season rolls along the more we’ll see if Poile made the right decisions with the players he added to the roster, mostly to address the defensive issues, or if he swung and missed.

Poile has been somewhat under the hot seat in recent time. He really needs this past offseason to bear positive results and get the Predators back into being a viable playoff team.

Let’s catch up with past Predators who were lost over the offseason.
