The Predators draft had an overarching boom or bust feel to it. They took a whole bunch of extremely talented players who are far away from putting it together, though they balanced it out with a few more solid players. Since they didn't have a first round pick, the strategy was one of the best ways to get impact talent into the system.
Nashville also took several players out of Europe, planning to let them season for a few years before bringing them to North America. The strategy in this draft was clear, Nashville wanted impact players, and is willing to wait on them if they're a ways away from the NHL. Right now, this is a difficult draft to evaluate, but in a few years we could look back and see one of the best drafts in Nashville's history, or one of the worst.
