What could the Preds line combinations look like?

Josh Cooper of The Tennessean posted his potential line combinations for the Nashville Predators’ 2014-15 season this morning. Some peculiar choices to be certain. In response, here are ours…

James Neal – Mike Ribeiro – Craig Smith
Colin Wilson – Derek Roy – Olli Jokinen
Filip Forsberg – Calle Jarnkrok – Viktor Stalberg
Matt Cullen – Paul Gaustad – Eric Nystrom/Gabriel Bourque

Players not mentioned include Rich Clune who would be inserted into the lineup depending on Nashville’s need for muscle or grit. Also, Mike Fisher is on the shelf until at least November and, if the Preds land Kevin Hayes, the second and third lines above are subject to even more shuffling.
