Wednesday’s Dump & Chase: Music City Summer

New, comments

Things are pretty slow on the Nashville hockey front, but the city is in full swing for summer. Warped Tour and Imagine Dragons made a stop yesterday, and some of us might need a few days to recover from our sunburns.

Honestly if I had never seen hockey before a day in my life, the Capitals winning the Cup might have converted me. That was something special.

I’ll be the first to admit I was probably more excited about Tolvanen this season than was necessary. He’s got some work to do, but the fact that he knows that hopefully means good things for his future in Nashville.

I understand there isn’t room for Hartnell on Nashville’s roster anymore, but I’m not entirely convinced he was given the best opportunity to make a difference this past season either. Sign him to a two-way deal...they seem to be giving those out like candy these days.

People started dropping within the first hour. Enjoy Music City responsibly, seriously it’s hot. Stay hydrated, and use your sunscreen!

Can someone help me out, do we not like Imagine Dragons? I’m unclear after the Vegas anthem singing and their Twitter self-love.
