David Legwand is looking to improve on last years career highs in goals and points.

Last night on the eve of Nashville’s first pre-season home game I had a dream that the Preds raised the Stanley Cup at the Sommet Center in front of a packed house for the first time in Preds history. I remember the dream so vividly because it was almost like every time that cup was raised it was a big smack in the face to all the nay sayers out there both in Nashville and around the world. In my dream I remember telling people around me that at the beginning of the year I predicted that this team would be better than everyone thought and that now there was proof in the pudding that hockey definitely belonged in Nashville.

Dreams are what they are but looking back throughout history dreams have played major rolls in peoples lives. Kings would have dreams interpreted to see what they meant or what they should do regarding a situation. Does this dream have that kind of meaning? Probably not. It’s probably just an excited hockey fan dreaming big on the eve of what is arguably the most import season in this young franchises history.

Tonight the Nashville Predators and the Atlanta Thrashers go to battle in Nashville’s second preseason game and Atlanta’s third. Nashville is 1-0 and Atlanta is 2-0. I always have mixed feelings about pre-season games. I’m excited to go and can’t wait to see hockey, especially after this tumultuous off season. And there is always the opportunity to see what you hope is the future of your team. In some cases you see some great hockey due to the fact people are fighting for a roster spot and playing for passion and their career. But in most cases you don’t really get a good look at your team due to the fact the stars of your team don’t play or if they do it is very little. None the less its hockey and it’s exciting. Game time is 7:08. Hope to see you all at the rink.

I'll be there. Meanwhile, as I write this, an hour is being devoted to the Preds on 104.5 The Zone. Guests are Ralph Schultz, Ron Samuels from OurTeamNashville, and others. This group, along with the First Lady and several other organizations are sponsoring a corporate breakfast on Sep 26th to pitch sales to local businesses. Included will be the ability to make donations for troops and charities. Other good news include the fact that only two suites remain and lower bowl ticket sales are as strong as they've ever been. However, we still have a lot of work remaining. New mayor takes office tomorrow morning and in a kick off press conference today he mentioned three things, one of which was the importance of the Predators remaining in Nashville. (He is a long time season ticket holder so that should help.) There are a lot of things happening.
