Can Nashville Put It Together

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

“It’s hard to jump into a team midway through the season,” said Forsberg, in an interview. “It’s never happened to me before because I’ve always been on a team that made the playoffs. I don’t think I’ve played as good as I want to, but it’s starting to get better. I’m starting to get used to my teammates and line-mates, so it should go uphill from here.”
The problem, from Nashville’s perspective, is that they haven’t had a chance to get their full team together since making the Forsberg trade. They currently have three top-nine forwards (Steve Sullivan, Martin Erat and Scott Hartnell) out of their line-up, with relatively serious injuries. Nashville’s strength is its balanced three-line attack. Forsberg is one point shy of 50 for the season; when he reaches that mark, he will be the eighth Predators’ forward to do so this season.
