The Nashville Predators have a group of defensemen that can move the puck and join the rush.
P.K. Subban, Mattias Ekholm, Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis make up the team's top four blue liners and each of those players is capable of moving the puck efficiently. "We’re that way," Ekholm said. "We still can defend, and we’re pretty solid at that, but our strength is carrying the puck up and wanting to go on the attack. … Maybe that’s what’s happening with a lot of the stay-at-home defensemen. The speed is too fast right now. All of the defensemen on this team can really defend and join the rush." There's no doubt that Nashville has one of the top groups of defensemen in the NHL right now.
