Which fighters are suited for regular playing time?

Ew. I'm not up on my enhanced stats, but if I'm not mistaken, Rich Clune falls into the small pile of fighters that are "useful." Someone read this and tell me I'm wrong. Because I feel wrong.

Allan Muir of SI Supports Firing Poile and Trotz

39

It's in Allan Muir's Power Rankings. Where he talks about Predators at 23 he mentions if the organization was smart they would get rid of both. "They're toast and if anyone in the organization is smart, they'll make the decision to move on without GM David Poile and coach Barry Trotz first thing Monday morning. Both are good hockey men who'd quickly find work elsewhere, but they've had enough time to try to make Nashville more successful than it has been."

It's good to hear this side of the game talked about more openly. It's why Rich Clune has failed to live up to his Sean Avery-like aspirations (takes more penalties than he draws) and there's more value to former Pred Kevin Klein than his low point totals and PK ice time.

The Chatterbox: Pekka Rinne Edition

Hello Preds, folks! I thought I would stop by from Admirals Roundtable to provide you with my audio tape from the Pekka Rinne show from earlier today. It was quite fun - and I'll be covering him during tonight's game like a hawk. Favorite quote from him today: It’s not a huge difference when you compare shots between AHL and NHL if you take Shea Weber away.

Watch as David Legwand recalls the details of his first career NHL goal with Mark Howard at 104.5's SportsFest. Since I missed the event while driving back from vacation, does anyone have a recap of how his talk went?

I wonder if these work with those *other* building blocks

Preds figures are "coming soon," but it's a shame there's no T.J. Oshie. Actually, it's a shame that there are Team Canada minifigures ... But the site can't ship to Canada.

It appears the Preds offical forum has been closed down

Seems to have run off everyone ... I post here & at hfboards ... I couldn't care less about twitter or facebook ... so I'm cool with that, just sucks that other people don't know about the other forums out there.
