Hurricanes @ Predators Preseason Preview: The Final Exhibition

The Nashville Predators (6-1-0) wrap up preseason action tonight at Bridgestone Arena with a game against the Carolina Hurricanes (1-4-0), who fell to Columbus last night in Raleigh. It will be the last chance in game action for those players competing for rosters spots to make an impression on the Preds' coaching and front office staffs (check out Marc's look at the forwards and defense while you're at it).

So who do you think wins them over?

Follow after the jump for the rosters for both teams...
