Bridgestone Arena Named Pollstar Arena of the Year
Big news for Ft. Bridgestone. If you've ever had any involvement with Bridgestone or with the Predators organization, this should be no surprise. The only real surprise is that they don't win this every year.

Subban, Preds Teammates Visit Montreal Children's Hospital
Is it dusty in here? This is a great read about what continues to be an amazing story for P.K. Subban. As he mentioned on the Daily Show, this is more than a photo opportunity and an atta-boy for him. This is a chance to make a real impact.

Some real bombs get dropped here. Some major takeaways: Patrik Laine lives with his mom and desires Amish fans. Actually this makes me like him a lot. He's fun to watch on the ice and seems like he'd be fun to hang out with off the ice as well.
