[b]Originally posted (and more readable) on [url]www.prednation.com[/url][/b] In Part I, we took a look back at the expectations going into last season. That look provided a brief glimpse at the players we were going to ice as well. At this time last season, we were a team coming off of a 100+ point season. We were going into the season expecting another 100+ point c...
For many people this time of year is as exciting as Christmas. It’s hockey season. The weather is cooler and training camps are opening. Here in Nashville it’s been one of those off seasons that everyone would just soon forget. The Predators fans are ready for some hockey talk that involves the actual game of hockey and not the business of hockey. We are tired of h...
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 ...

Feeling Different

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
This opening night feels different. There is no other way to say it…it just feels different. This is the ten year anniversary of this team. I was there at it’s birth and thought that today I would feel like a proud parent…but instead I feel empty inside. With so much uncertainty this Pred fan is fatigued. That is why I have not posted in forever. I couldn’t brin...

Crotch - Bang!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Statement made. That's the way I look at last night's 4-0 Predators win over the Colorado Avalanche. Statement made. Yes I know that one game does not a season make but Colorado is a good team...a team everyone is predicting to make the playoffs. They are loaded with fire power and the off-season addition of Ryan Smyth gives this team yet another weapon. None the...

Not So Bright Stars

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Wow, another great night at the Sommet Center! The Preds beat the Dallas Stars 5 -1. Good stuff. The game started off with a fight between Tootoo and Krystofer Barch. Unfortunately, Tootoo was on the losing end of that one, which was unusual for him. Hordichuk took care of it, though, by challenging Brad Winchester to a fight at the next face-off. I remember being ho...

Legwand Inks Long Term Deal

Posted Friday | Comments 0
The Predators first ever draft pick signed a deal that keeps him as a Predator for the next six years for 27 million dollars. Legwand who is making 2.1 million this year more than doubles his salary to an average of 4.5 mil a year. Predators GM David Poile was thrilled to announce the extension. "This is the first step moving forward under new ownership and is a sign of...
This is great news for the Pred faithful! Spending money to lock up some key players (Legwand) and the sell of the team going to the local group is now official. I would expect Erat and Dumont's signings to follow. Those two guys are key to that top line right now. Rads is not too far behind them. We better get him locked up before he becomes too hot of a commodity. There ...

This Means Something

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
[b]For years games between the Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets[/b] have meant very little to either team. In the beginning of this division rivalry the games resembled more of a fairgrounds wrestling night than a hockey game. Both teams lacked talent but made up for it with gritty players who were not afraid to drop the gloves. The Preds took many of the earl...

What's That Smell?

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
What you are smelling is the rotten egg that the Preds laid last night against a very good Dallas Stars team. [b]Where It Went Right:[/b] The first period for the most part was solid and the Preds played step for step with the Stars. It looked like this was going to be a game decided in OT or by a late goal. Both teams were skating hard and playing a physical game. ...
Call tonight's game what you want... "Must win." "Statement Game." "Gut Check Time." "Critical." [b]Whatever you want to call it[/b] the Predators have no other choice but to win tonight. While it's not win or go home it is win or start looking at where you'll be vacationing next week. While the Preds find themselves down 2-0 in the best of seven contest...

Interesting Quote...

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Sitting in my car and heard a Mike Babcock quote saying that going with his plan B (Chris Osgood) is not bad. "He won 29 games and had the best goals against average in the league," said Babcock. Wrong...Dan Ellis had the best goals against in the NHL...sorry Mike. [b][i][i]Updated:[/i][/i][/b] [i]Whoops...this is what I get for writing a blog in the car in the...
I just returned from the Sommet Center viewer night. An unexpected crowd of over 2000 viewed the game and evidently swamped the concession areas prompting a 30 minute "timeout" so they could reload. I'm sure the new ownership group was impressed and encouraged by this turn out as this seasons road to this point has been full of hills and valleys. I would love for the ...

No Bigger Than This

[b]Games don’t get bigger than this[/b]. Win or go home...it will be written countless times about this game so why not one more here too! The Predators face the Red Wings in game 6 of the eastern conference quarterfinals today at 2pm CST...the Wings lead the best of seven series 3-2. [b]Getting Caught Up:[/b] Sorry I did not have a chance to post reactions to game 5 ...

Seeing Stars Tonight...

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The Preds (2-1) ride a modest two game win streak into Dallas (0-1-1) to face a hungry Stars team. Sound familar? Sound like an opening line to the blog about the game at Chicago on Monday? The only difference is that Dallas has already had their home opener...but this team is no less hungry. With an OT loss to open the season at home and then a road loss in Nashville ...

Who Knew We Were Invited...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Who knew the Preds were invited to a coming out party last night? I didn't...but that is exactly what happened. The Preds, and the rest of the NHL, got a look at the force that is Fabian Brunnstrom. The 23 year old Swedish talent became the third player in NHL history to net a hat trick in his first game and in the process has everyone wondering just how good this guy will...
[b]Rough week...[/b] I want to start this note off by reaffirming my position on the Spezza trade. Personally I thought it was a disgraceful display of management by the Senators head office, though as a longtime Senators fan, I shouldn't be surprised. After all this is the same organization that decided to offer a contract to the giveaway artist Wade Redden instead of Zd...
The Sens are set to take on Dustin Tokarski and the Canadiens tonight in their fourth straight home game out of five in a row. In a stretch that has seen them play 10 of their last 13 games in Ottawa, the Sens have gone 5-6-2 and have seen a boost to their offence. The Senators have 41 goals for in their last 13 games, 3.15GF/game, a jump from their 2.8GF/game on the seaso...
