Silly thoughts on a soggy morning: Thursday's notes

Last night's post tying the TV show Restaurant Impossible to the Nashville Predators got me thinking - what other reality TV personalities might lend a hand around Smashville? They probably don't need any home-makeover types, as one item I think we can all agree on is that the team has done some pretty wonderful things with Bridgestone Arena over the last couple seasons. So... the Bachelorette, perhaps, to entice top free agents? They've already got the Food Network tie-in with some of the concession stands, but would a Guy Fieri or Adam Richman take things to another level?

Chime in with your suggestions while reading this morning's hockey notes...
