Monday's Dump & Chase: Looking for Leadership

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...
