NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Nashville Predators Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

NHL 'could envision' hosting outdoor game in Nashville
Could it really happen? As much flak as the Winter Classic games get as far as seating and pricing are concerned, I really think it would be an awesome experience to host one and have a chance to experience the spectacle first hand.

Predators don't want Ducks early in NHL playoffs
Rexrode really stepped up his nickname game for this article. However, he speaks quite frankly about the price that must be paid, even in victory, when playing in a series against the Anaheim Ducks.

Oh, I can’t argue with stats...thanks, Brian.

Poile honored by Predators for all-time GM wins record |
Here's a clip of the David Poile celebration from Thursday night as well as a nice write up.

The 31 NHL Team MVPs with a month remaining in the regular season | The Hockey News
This is a very flattering (albeit true) take on the current MVP of our team. Not a whole lot of surprises throughout the list, though.

How about these guys going above and beyond for the fans?!

Magic Number Tracker: Friday, March 9 - On the Forecheck
The magic number. Not only do we tell you what it is for several different scenarios, but we actually explain how the magic number works!

Predators’ Prospects Report: Post-season Primer Part II - On the Forecheck
Update on some of the guys in development for the Predators now that Post-seasons have started. One update from the original post, Tolvanen and Jokerit have moved on to the next round of the KHL playoffs.

Hot take: Let's hope Jokerit makes it to the conference finals and plays against that stacked team that's supposed to win it all. Eeli gets battle tested against the best Russia has to offer and comes to us to play his 9 games when it matters most! @ me if you don't like it!!!

I found a great place with all of the tweets put together. Full of intrigue and exactly the kind of thing we all tend to accuse the NHL (and even the NFL and MLB) of doing, but this is all out in the open. Jokerit will have to go through SKA to make it to the Cup Finals...good luck...comrades.

Another one is officially off the market. Congratulations, you two!

She said yes!!!! Best day of my life!!!!!
