The Nashville Predators may not have an elite center like Sidney Crosby or Jonathan Toews, but with the addition of Cody Franson from Toronto, their defense could line up as follows in the postseason:
Roman Josi — Shea Weber
Seth Jones — Cody Franson
Mattias Ekholm — Ryan Ellis
Now put goalie Pekka Rinne behind that blue-line corps, and you can see what GM David Poile was thinking when he made the trade.
