I speculated on Free Agency Eve that he may wind up back in Nashville as a Predator. Well, he's here! Here's his press conference. If you want to hear from the man himself, check this out. Personally, I think he seems like a good dude. He's confident, but not cocky. My current mission in life is to eat catfish with him. Let's make it happen!

Everyone in Smashville got a little dust in their eyes reading Pekka's article the other day, but I scrolled down further and was captivated by this article by Vladimir Tarasenko. He details his upbringing in Russia and first years in the NHL. He also stirs up more dust by discussing his heartwarming friendship with one of his young fans. This piece humanizes a guy who I, admittedly, said some terrible, terrible things about in front of family and friends during the playoffs. (bonus: read this in a Russian accent)
