I understand that Nashville is not Toronto, Detroit or Vancouver and that sometimes former players take cheap shots and that we are ignored by the media. I realize that various hockey discussion forums across the internet are going to be full of people who don't really consider the Preds a viable hockey team nor Nashville a hockey town; however, Mr. Puck Daddy has committed a very serious offense against the fan base here by this comment. To imply that the team has no fans because hockey is still growing here only reinforces various stereotypes.
We have all seen the great amount of "journalism" that has been given to us by the Tennessean and the Canadian media about the impending doom of this team off the ice; however, being mocked as a fan base by a man who supposed to be prognosticating about on ice fortunes is offensive to me. I usually laugh at these people and recognize that Barry's boys will shut them up once again this year, but this one got to me for some reason.
