Welcome to the second-greatest mismatch I think we're likely to see in this series breaking down the top players to wear each jersey number in Nashville Predators history. Not that I mean to prejudice your vote or anything, but, well, you know...

Bob Boughner (1999-2000)

Claimed by Nashville in the 1998 Expansion Draft, Boughner provided some stability and toughness on the Preds' blueline during the early going. In March 2000 he was traded to Pittsburgh, having played 141 games as a Predator with 5 goals, 14 assists, a -19 rating and 234 penalty minutes.

His enduring contribution to the Preds' franchise has been his coaching of Ryan Ellis in his capacity as head coach/owner of the OHL's Windsor Spitfires.

Stan Neckar (2004)

February 26, 2004 was the one and only game that Stan Neckar played for the Nashville Predators, as he earned an assist in a 4-0 win over Minnesota. It was also the only regular season game he played that year, as chronic groin trouble (which had bothered him previously) kept him out of the lineup during this, his final NHL season.

It wasn't all bad news, however. In March the Preds traded him to Tampa Bay for a 6th-round draft pick, and Neckar got to ride along to the 2004 Stanley Cup championship, playing two games in the playoffs for the Lightning.

Shea Weber (2006-present)

Hmm... let's look at his resume so far:

...and he's got 14 more years to work adding to that list. Didya know that in the first six games of his rookie season, he actually wore #48?
