"It is whatever the coaches think. It's not a big deal to me," Legwand said. "Hornqvist is a good player, good in the room, good with the young guys." Legwand has never worn a permanent letter on his jersey despite being a long-tenured member of the franchise and their first-ever draft pick.

David Legwand can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2013-14 season and his future with the Nashville Predators is uncertain.
"There's lots of considerations," GM David Poile said. "Certainly, Leggy has been a big part of our franchise, and we would like to continue the relationship. I just want to see how the season starts." The 33-year-old center has suited up in all 894 of his career games with the Predators. He was selected second overall in the 1998 draft and has developed into a solid two-way player. Legwand may want to test free agency and Nashville could decide to let him go depending on what happens over the course of the regular season.
