Turris Choosing Nashville Makes Preds Long-Term Winner |
Acknowledgement that this isn't "All-In", but a masterful setup of core talent for a number of years. Remember when no one wanted to come here?

What They're Saying: Experts React to Preds' Trade for Turris |
"Another season, another blockbuster trade by the Nashville Predators." Lots of deserved praise for GM David Poile. We also need to acknowledge our scouting, drafting, player development and AHL teams for identifying and training the talent we need to make these trades.

"Predators GM Poile lands No. 2 center Turris without touching Nashville's defensive strength." A whole article of praise for GM David Poile. Bask Smashville, bask.

I could find more, but really it’s all about us right now.

"It's gone beyond a bad game or an off week. The Edmonton Oilers, projected by many to be among the elite teams in the Western Conference this season, are 4-8-1 after being shut out 4-0 against the Detroit Red Wings at Rogers Place on Sunday." Eggs. Basket.
