Lately there has been a troubling trend for the Nashville Predators with defensive breakdowns, and in return the goaltending also hasn't been good enough to cover up those mishaps.

On paper the Predators have a much better defensive corps than what they've been showing lately. What's holding the Predators back right now from being a top-3 team in the Central Division is inconsistencies in their defensive structure.

With the trade deadline now less than two months away, it looks highly probable that the Predators will make changes via trade with their defensemen. Tyson Barrie comes to mind first, but he's not the only one that is a trade possibility.
