Which NHL star would you never, ever want to see as a Nashville Predator?

As we head into mid-summer I thought I'd toss a topic for conversation out here to keep you thinking about the Preds over the weekend. Each Friday afternoon, I'll pose a question that invites you to share your thoughts and react to one another's suggestions.

So today I ask you...

Which one great player in the NHL would you never take on the Nashville Predators for any reason, and why?

I'll toss in my $0.02 after the jump!

Personally, I wouldn't want to see Ilya Kovalchuk as a Nashville Predator. I think the guy's style just goes completely against the grain of team-oriented Nashville hockey, with the way he floats defensively and spends the entire 2:00 of a power play on the ice. Yes, he has genuine goal-scoring ability, but it comes with baggage that I think would undermine the rest of the team.

What do you say?
