With Pekka Rinne out, Nashville turns its net to Anders Lindback. Lindback was selected 207th overall in 2008, but would have gone much higher had he not been diagnosed with Adult Still's Disease months earlier. He needs one injection a day to deal with arthritis-related pains. Other teams were scared off by his condition. The Predators took a gamble, which looks pretty good.
