Monday's Dump & Chase: Looking for Leadership

Frederick Breedon

Later today we hope to get an update on the status of Patric Hornqvist and Colin Wilson, who were injured over the weekend in the Edmonton & Minnesota games. Until they return, who can pick up the burden of offensive leadership on this team? Veterans like Martin Erat & David Legwand? Young guns like Craig Smith and Gabriel Bourque? Perhaps a player or two promoted from Milwaukee? That's the big question as the Preds prepare for a 5-game road trip...
