Jersey Number Series
Who is the greatest Nashville Predator to wear each number?
Today's poll includes two interesting contenders for the title of the greatest to ever wear that number for the Predators: the infamous "Captain Hair", and a young defenseman who is looking to earn a regular NHL job for the first time this fall.
As our jersey number series moves into the 40's, we consider four players who didn't exactly achieve great things while wearing that number. One of them, however, stands out as a fan favorite from the early days of the Nashville Predators.
We're headed for a titanic battle in today's installation of our jersey number series - two goaltenders who spent years in the Nashville system, but only played a combined total of 5 games at the NHL level!
We continue with #29 in our Jersey Number Series, which pits our first goalie featured thus far, against a well-schooled defensive forward...
We move right along to #28 in our jersey number series. From brutal enforcers to faceoff specialists, this set of 9 candidates is quite the assortment.
Though it is fairly obvious who will take this one home, let's take a look at all the players who have ever donned #27.
Sometimes speed and tenaciousness can overcome size and strength, and I have a sneaking suspicion that will prove to be the case with our latest poll, in which a whirling dervish of a scorer is likely to stand tall over three hulking bangers.

Today we have a collection of stay-at-home defensemen, industrious wingers, and a heavyweight enforcer who isn't shy about bringing the crowd into the action.
Today we have the first captain to lead the Nashville Predators to the Stanley Cup playoffs up against perhaps the most popular player in team history, who recently left town to join the Preds' arch-rival in Detroit.
We have a quartet of prime candidates for today's entry in the jersey number series. A banger, a scorer, a bargain-bin wonder and a minor-leaguer who rose to the challenge all vie for today's top spot...
Today, our series touches on a number of players who spent more time with the minor-league club rather than in the NHL.
Botox and goal gaffes highlight this set of candidates for the best number 15 in Predators history...
The Nashville Predators jersey series moves on to lucky 13.
Since David Legwand is the only #11 in Nashville Predators history, our series of jersey number polls skips up to #12, featuring 7 players who served from the very first Preds game ever, all the way up to a popular leader on today's team.
Though there are only three players that have ever donned that number in the team's history, two of the three will be remembered undoubtedly as figures who greatly impacted the fate of the Predators.
In cities around the NHL, the #9 hangs from the rafters honoring the likes of Gordie Howe & Rocket Richard. While no Preds have lived up to those lofty standards quite yet, there have been a few memorable players suiting up with that number.
