3. Nashville Predators

Strengths: Nashville's system remains flush at every position with players able to fill a variety of roles. Austin Watson, Tayler Beck, and Zach Budish bring skill to a deep and gritty group of forwards. Ryan Ellis and Jonathan Blum highlight a deep and diverse group of defensemen. The team also has exceptional goaltending depth led by Anders Lindback and Mark Dekanich. Weaknesses: While Watson, Beck, and others remain viable top-six prospects, the team still lacks an elite offensive forward. Top 5 prospects: 1. Jonathan Blum, D, 2. Taylor Beck, LW, 3.
