It’s never easy to see one of your favorites players go to another team and wear a different uniform, especially if it’s a rival team. The Nashville Predators have seen some important players in their history go to other teams, leaving the fans heartbroken.
When your favorite player goes to another team, you still want to cheer for them, but also have some confliction. It’s the nature of the business of investing as a fan.
One players that’s not on this list, but one day might be, is Pekka Rinne. It will be incredibly difficult for many Predators fans to see Rinne in net for another team, just like it was hard for New Jersey Devils fans to see Martin Brodeur temporarily play for the St. Louis Blues.
In this list I’m going to lay out the five players in Nashville Predators history that were so heartbreaking to see throw on another team’s sweater and not retire in Nashville. We’ll end it with a honorable mention slide.
