Just like Imus' comments on the Rutgers women's basketball team, I'm sure I'll take some major heat from hockey purists with what I'm about to say. [b]To be honest, I'm not much of a fan of the playoffs.[/b] It's actually quite uninteresting to me(probably because of the old days of watching the Wings and Coyotes play each other for two or three years in the mid-90's) unt...

Welcome one and all

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
HI everyone and welcome to my blog. I sometimes have brilliant things to say and sometimes I just muddle on through. Right now I am suffering through hockey hell; my Flyers not being in the playoffs. I have moved onto my secondary and tertiary teams the Preds and the Flames. I am just glad to have Center ice and be able to watch playoff hockey. I hope...
A late game rally by the Nashville Predators set up a thrilling finish in game #1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals between the Preds and the Sharks. San Jose held a 4-2 lead with 10:00 to go in the 3rd but 2 goals in the last 7 minutes by Alex Radulov's 2nd of the game and J.P Dumonts 2nd of the game with just under a minute to go sent the game to overtime. Noth...
Ok that was sarcasm. Every year, I think I forget just how good playoff hockey is. The playoffs are only one day old, and we've already seen a double OT game, followed up by a Quadruple OT game. (I started writing this blog during the second OT assuming the game would end soon.) We watched San Jose lose last years leading goal scorer, and then lose a 2 goal lead in the ...

Hartnell gets off clean

Nashville Predators' forward Scott Hartnell will not recieve a suspension after taking his second game misconduct of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Cheechoo took a blow to the knee in game #1 which resulted in Hartnell's first game misconduct. In last nights games, he was involved in a scuffle, however according to TSN, the league determined that he was in fact involved in...

Radulov gets one game

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Nashville Predators' forward Alexander Radulov recieved a one game suspension by the NHL today following a vicious hit from behind on San Jose's Steve Bernier in last nights game. The real question here is whether or not Radulov deserved more time for the incident.
One second you're in love, the next you wish you never met. One week, 4 different possible outcomes. Some one is always on the powerplay. Inversely, some one is always killing off a penalty. No matter how many saves you make, you let one slip through and it's automatically your fault. Some one is bound to get hurt. At the end of a hard fought battle, ther...
This blog is for those of you who don't follow hockey all that much but have decided to watch some playoff hockey and you want to know the best games that are out there to watch this round. I'm gonna give you my suggestions of games to watch from the east and west, whichever side you're on. The games I post will be the most intriguing ones I think are out there out there. ...
I am not going to apology for splitting hairs over the use of Nation when describing the fans of certain NHL teams or the co-opting of the term for profit. No, I won’t because I’m Canadian and we’ve been splitting nations and attempting to sew them back together, and to the larger fabric, since our inception. For those of you reading this in Canada I realize inv...

Whither goest thou, Preds?

Posted Thursday | Comments 2
The speculation that various Canadian venues in Ontario would be chosen if the Preds were to leave Music City doesn't ask the right question: [b]If the Preds were moved[/b] to Kitchener, Brantford, Hamilton, or even The Soo or Sudbury - [b]the real question is,what conference would they be in?[/b] Would they automatically become an Eastern Conference team with such a m...
I had this all ready to post on another message board, tried to post it, and found out the thread had been locked. RATS! So I'm posting it here. I'd been craving having something to blog about anyways. This is a little modified to make more sense for the blog. Nashville simply hasn't had enough time to become a viable market. But there's no reason it still could...

Various news and notes

Posted Wednesday | Comments 4
So lots has gone down lately and lots of rumors floating around. I'm just going to take this time to go over the events and rumors leading up to the draft. - Great move by the Flyers. I don't get why people are complaining, they get what they wanted and so did the Preds from what I can tell. - I do think the Flyers over paid but they did something smart with the to...
I am a Flyers and a hockey fan. I have been a hockey fan in a town where the Philadelphia Eagles have a death grip on the hearts, minds and sports talk radio souls of our area. Heck, even the Phillies and 76ers (ban) - who are just god awful - get more airtime than the NHL. There are those who say that hockey doesn't matter, save for a few towns in Canada, and that th...
Question!!!!! When will the Nashvillians remember that they (the taxpayers) paid Bud Adams to bring a football team here that cost 18 times more than what it will cost to keep the Preds here? Refer to the excerpt below. "A deal between the Houston Oilers and Nashville was announced in November 1995. The stadium would seat 67,000, with 120 luxury suites and 9,600 premi...

Predators Improvements?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 4
Now that it looks like the Preds sell will actually go to the Local Ownership group, lead by David Freeman, I am interested to hear from you Pred fans as to what moves you think they will make and what moves you would like to see them make. I am referring to on-ice personnel, of course. If you would like to share your ideas on what they should do off-ice as well those comm...

Answering The Bell

Posted Thursday | Comments 5
[b]Answering the bell[/b]...that seems to be exactly what the Preds Thursday night in Ottawa with a 6-5 win over the Senators. Every time that they were challenged by the Senators they answered. The Preds jumped out to a quick lead with a early powerplay goal in the first minute of the game. Ottawa would answer and tie it but instead of folding or laying back the Preds...
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 ...

[b]NASHVILLE -- ARE THEY GOOD ENOUGH?[/b] The next team on my NHL tour is the Nashville Predators, a team that started out slow and has recently picked up. Why have they picked it up? Well I like their speed. They have a terrific coach, and a terrific young defense. The preds also have some very talented vets, and you get a very good mix of vets with young players. ...
Hitch is 0-8-2 against the Predators. If you want to go by the history of this horrid record, I think that Leclaire should be placed in net tonight considering his season thus far and being fresh. However they are placing Norrena in net again because he's only let in 4 goals in the past 200 minutes of play. Modin will not return today and still has not got a s...
Well, it's coming down to crunch time before the trade deadline and already we have been bombarded with rumours about us getting a guy and them getting a lot of our guys. If you are like me, you have probably thought about what the numbers are and who is in the mix. Well, technically everyone is in the mix (e.g. Vokoun) but, I thought I would give the info on who our UFA...

Curses!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Tootoo's injury was the last straw. It appears that my fantasy hockey curse is back in full force this year. So I did it. I made the ultimate sacrifice. I dropped all the Preds from my team. [sniffles] I had dropped Gelinas and Hordichuk early in the season. I dropped Bonk a few weeks ago. On Sunday, I dropped Tootoo, Legwand, Suter, and Radulov. The change ...

Ouch - Preds Ringin' In My Ear

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
[b]Well tonight's game certainly had its share of ups and downs for both teams. I thought Colorado came out with a lot of speed and energy to start the game, flying up the wings and making smart passes. Then came a disheartening goal by Weber who let one rip from the point on the PP. Shortly thereafter, the Preds continued to press and wound up hitting 2 posts (if i'm not ...

Improving the NHL

I posted this as a comment in one of the topics in the forum, but I felt it was long and detailed enough to post as my blog as well; First of all....I would make no major changes to the game itself....maybe just eliminate the instigator penalty. Some of you guys are arguing that owners would lose too much money expanding the ice surface........ummm.....why the hell d...

Hockey Heartache

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
[reposted from my other blog, http://beyondthefried.blogspot.com] It's a frustrating time to be a Preds fan. Hubby's work gave him free tickets to the game against the Capitals Tuesday night. Sigh. I don't think I've ever heard Preds fans boo their own team that much. The first period was really bad. They played better in the 2nd and 3rd periods, but it just wasn't e...
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 ...
I attended all three games and the viewer party in the last couple of weeks and it has been a ball. My wish is that more people in this area get to experience the excitement that was generated not only in the hockey community but to the city in general. The new ownership group looks to be top shelf and I have experienced games in all different sports in arenas around the...

Home Dish Advantage

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
When a team wins first place in the regular season, why can't that home-ice advantage extend to even a modicum of home-fan advantage for broadcast start times of away games? Those of you cheering on your teams in the Eastern Conference won't even know what I'm talking about. But for Wings fans, being in the Western Conference and in the Eastern Time Zone results in an ...
After reading Julie Robenhymer’s great columns on her “fan” experiences I’ve been formulating my take on the state of respect, or lack of, that I have seen in my 30 plus years of attending sporting events at different venues around the country. Baseball is my first love, followed closely by Hockey. I really prefer to go to hockey games for live action so maybe ...
[b]HOCKEY FANS IN A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN[/b] Today's blog idea came from a quote from a previous blog of mine. It is a quote by Brandon Felder from the blog Name one thing that is wrong with the NHL. Brandon Felder [b]I believe that the one thing wrong in hockey is the way other fans look down at each other. In my mind, it doesn't matter what team you root for, ...
http://flyerflies.com/blog/?p=171 Al Strachan of FoxSports.com has published a blistering criteria of the NHL's current financial status today, declaring that the NHL is still destroying itself from the inside out. This comes in the wake of a disappointingly bloated 2008 free agent market in which a number of high and mid-level players seemed to get far more in their n...

Flames sweep Preds

Posted Saturday | Comments 3
If there is one thing that I have learned about the Calgary Flames, it is that they can win ugly, boring, exciting; basically they can win any way they can win. Tonight they won with defense, which usually means totally boring. But tonight, there was a touch of exciting, meaning I liked a couple of goals the Flames scored tonight. Before I mention the goals, let's ta...
Going into tonight's game in Dallas the Preds are still unbeaten this season. I'll take 3-0-3 over 2-3-1, which is where the Flyers, Stanley Cup finalists last year currently sit after 6 games. The injury bug has been flying around and it's not a good thing, hopefully we can weather the storm and the dam doesn't burst. Now onto my favoraite subject, the Canadian press...
Round 1 of the playoffs was pretty exciting. [i][b]Half of the eight series went to game 7[/b].[/i] Two teams faced elimination more than once to win their series.

NHL Semifinals 2011-2012

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Wow, that was an exciting first round with numerous upsets, and plenty of teams having some very close calls over the past 2 weeks. Like you, I’m surprised about several of the teams that are still alive and kicking in the NHL playoffs. Here’s my take on the 2nd round, and predictions as to who is moving on to the Conference Finals. http://betweenthebenches.com/?p...
[b]Please follow me at https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] The Western Conference also boasts a few good names still left unsigned. Jaden Schwartz headlines the group that includes a goalie that won a couple playoffs games this year and a young winger that scored a series-winning goal. The rest of the group all gained playoff experience except for the young Predators ...

Rinne shuts out the Avs

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
[b]Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] Colorado’s season continues to dwindle after another shutout loss in Denver. The Predators came into the Pepsi Center and put one goal past Calvin Pickard. They would eventually add a couple of empty-net goals to finish off the struggling Avs 3-0. Pickard was called up to start after Semyon Varlamov onc...
[b]Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] For the third time in four games the Avs received a late goal with Semyon Varlamov on the bench. In Tampa Nathan MacKinnon scored with 7 seconds left, at home against Boston Ryan O’Reilly scored with 1:45 remaining, and tonight, with just 36 seconds left on the clock, Nick Holden scored to tie the game at ...
[b]Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] Nashville has the second best record in the NHL? No problem. Erik Johnson is out for the foreseeable future? Big deal. Semyon Varlamov starts his 15th game over the last 16 contests? No biggie. The Avalanche welcomed the Predators to the Pepsi Center in the second of a home-and-home series tonight and wal...
