Predators Update, April 2 2009

Here's the roundup from the MSM and blogging world about your Nashville Predators this morning:

  • Hardly shocking news, but Steve Sullivan is Nashville's nominee for the Masterton Trophy, awarded for "perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." There are many strong candidates this year, so it is by no means a slam-dunk that Sully wins it...
  • Mile High Hockey (SBN's Colorado Avalanche blog) talks about Pekka Rinne and Steve Mason as examples of how franchises should develop their goaltending talent. For Avs fans, this has been a bit of a sore spot, to say the least.
  • ESPN's Pierre Lebrun opens his mailbag for some Jack Adams Award talk, and gives Barry Trotz his due.
  • Chris Nichols at Sportsnet talks about the evolving goaltending situation in Nashville, from the fantasy hockey perspective.
  • One of the more interesting April Fool's articles from yesterday was in the New York Times. It features Paul Wieland, a master NHL prankster and former director of communications for the Buffalo Sabres, and his assistant at the time, Gerry Helper, who is now the Predators senior VP for Communications.
