Things Do Change...

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
[b](Originally Posted 4/9/07 on [url]http://www.PredNation.com[/url])[/b] Flashback to last season: the Nashville Predators were coming off their best season in franchise history and were going into the playoffs with the fourth seed and home-ice advantage against one of the hottest teams in the league in San Jose. There were questions due to the injuries to Vokoun, Su...
They always say that rivalries are born and forged in the fiery pits of the playoffs. With the Sharks and the Predators, this is certainly the case. These two teams, who had no reason to really care one way or the other about each up until last season, are in the midst of forming one of the great new rivalries of the "New NHL." Meeting each other in the 4-5 seed matchup...

Tighten That Fight Strap!

Is it just me or does this seem like it should be game 6 of this series!? Man the first two games have taken allot out of me as a fan I can only imagine what the players must be feeling.

Hockey players have an annual tradition where they grow out their beards when the playoffs roll around. No one is quite sure when the "playoff beard" first sprouted roots, but it's as entrenched in the game of hockey as sudden death overtimes and the two pad stack. Certain diehard fans take their admiration of their favorite players to the next level by mimicking their ...
[b]By D. Smith:[/b] Well, hindsight is always 20/20, but I believe the deal was worth making. Also, you have to remember that injuries played a role that no one saw coming. Bringing in Forsberg was supposed to secure three incredibly talented lines in Nashville. (in no order) the 3 centers were supposed to be Forsberg, Arnott, and Legwand. The 6 surrounding wings were...

Epilogue

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
[b][Originally posted on PredNation.com 4/23/07][/b] To begin, I must congratulate the San Jose Sharks on a well played series. I obviously felt that Nashville would win this series in six games going in, but San Jose played a much better overall game and capitalized on their chances. They played a disciplined game, worked very hard, played an aggressive forecheck, an...

Don't Do It Mr. Leipold!

Early estimates had the Predators averaging *13,600 fans this past season but Tuesday the Predators announced that the average paid attendance was in fact 13,815. That puts the Preds much closer to the magic 14k paid figure that they need by 08-09 (a stipulation set in the last CBA)to take part in the revenue sharing. On the flip side it also still has them below 14k and t...

We are getting down to crunch time here. Free Agency begins July 1st and right now the Predators are not 100% sure who will own the team at that time.

With the signing of former LA Kings defencemen Aaron Miller on Monday, the Canucks are creating quite the rumor buzz around the league. With an NHL ready defensive core of 8 dmen, the canucks look to be unloading a defencemen to pick up some much needed scoring.

As a fan of the Colorado Avalanche since they moved to Denver, it's easy to know why I hold a special place for Peter Forsberg. How can I forgot Forsberg missing the entire 01-02 season only to return and become arguably the best player in the playoffs? Then there's the magic that Forsberg captured along with Milan Hejduk in the 02-03 where he won the Hart Trophy and helpe...

ok the forsberg with sweden when he uses one hand to push it over the goal line....is old. It was cool when some guys used it this season.. but take it off your highlight reels. And Ovechkins goal against boucher on Pheonix as PURE luck. It was cool what he did, but it cant be redone. Show me some snipes cool breakaways, or good plays. i only need to see them once.

The Forsberg Factor?

[img:left]http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2006/writers/allan_muir/11/07/GM.meetings/tx.forsberg.jpg[/img]I still remember vividly the 02/03 season. The Colorado Avalanche we're still in a dynasty with the likes of Peter Forsberg, Joe Sakic, Milan Hedjuk, Alex Tanguay and Patrick Roy. Forsberg led the league in scoring with a 106 point campaign (29G, 77A), and a league leading +52. F...
Ok, a month or two ago, I was reading that Pete was going to play for his father's league back in Sweden...What happened?

His career is winding down, and I honestly think that if h...

forsberg update

On monday forsberg met with the flyers management in the philadelphia area trying to work out a deal with forsberg that would maybe bring him back to the flyers and keep them under the cap and there is still a possibility that umberger or gauthier can be traded to free cap space.

There's been a ton of talk that the Habs and Sharks have talked about a trade that would send Patrick Marleau to the Habs, but speaking with a few sources, I've been told that the Predators, Oilers and the Sabres are also interested, and have offered better packages for Marleau. Also, just because the Sharks are listening to offers for Marleau, does that really mean th...

Preds fans, do you have your fan-wear for the upcoming season? Much of Pred Nation grabbed their gear during the Save the Predators rally, when the pro shop at the Sommet Center was having a crazy-go-nuts sale. However, if you missed that event, you still have time to grab shirts and jerseys from various places around town. I needed to replace the Vokoun t-shirt I wo...

Well, according to the master of all things European hockey, Bill Meltzer, Peter Forsberg will be skating at full tilt within two to three weeks and says this is the last chance for a comeback.

Let me first start by saying that this is my first blog, so if it sucks I apologize. I am a die hard Flyers fan, and am thrilled at the prospect of Peter Forsberg signing with the Flyers.

At the end of last nights game you could almost feel a collective sigh from the team. The All Star Break is here and the Preds can use a break.

I had to rub my eyes when I read Tim Sassone's column at 1:30 this morning. Was it a dream? Was I hallucinating? Had I had one too many glasses of Barolo earlier in the evening?

Now, one day after his agent, Don Baizley, said he's very unlikely to return this year, Peter Forsberg may be returning after all.

Anyhow, I am a Flyers fan, and I kind of was on and off the Fors...
[b] While some don't agree, I am unbelievably joyful that long-lost Foppa returns to Colorado! Even if it turns out to be just one game, just one time to see him put that jersey back on, with his #21 and to see him step onto the ice - that's more than enough for me. I'm sentimental I know and maybe a bit of a mushball but this guy - this great Avs players - has returne...

Dallas was unable to ratchet up the intensity when they had to though. They got up by a goal and for...

The last bunch of games have been a roller coaster for this young Avs roster.
