A call for nominations: Nashville Predators MVP, 1st Quarter

Over the course of the weekend, the Nashville Predators will hit the quarter-pole of this 2009-10 NHL regular season, which makes a fine point to consider which players have stood out from the rest in carrying the team to its 11-8-1 record.

On Monday, I'll open a poll so that the collected readers here at OtF can make just such a selection, but in order to populate that poll, I'd like to get your input.

In the comments below, I'd like to invite you to nominate your Nashville Predators MVP for the 1st quarter of the season. Do you go with the leading scorer, J.P. Dumont? Or perhaps one of the four guys tied for the team-lead with 5 goals - Jason Arnott, Patric Hornqvist, Steve Sullivan, or Shea Weber? How about Pekka Rinne in goal, or Jerred Smithson for his defensive work and surprising offensive punch?

Make your case in the comments, which I'll leave open through Monday at noon, after which I'll compile the list, feature the most persuasive commentary for each player, and open up the poll. One feature I should note is that if you like a particular comment, click the actions button below it, which then reveals a Rec button, so you can recommend the good ones.
