Other than the news reported yesterday that Jason Arnott was placed on IR and will miss 1-2 weeks, there's not much going on this morning in Nashville Predators news... yet. There is some scuttlebutt afloat that not 1, but 2 callups will be made from Milwaukee today, and as soon as that news arrives I'll post it here.
But until then, we've still gots lots of hockey goodness waiting for you this morning; an opportunity to work for the Preds on the social media front, an offensive defenseman placed on waivers over in the Eastern Conference, and a sampling from the philosophical offerings of Don Cherry. All this and more, after the jump!
Do you want to work on Facebook and Twitter for the Nashville Predators?

But when he says that he would have not gotten Steven Stamkos if he had traded away that draft pick, he ignores the fact that the Lightning would probably not have been in the position to have the #1 overall pick if they had one of the best goaltenders in the NHL.
