OTF Contributor Emeritus. A longtime Preds fan and season ticket holder, I gave up my seats because graduate school and my career took me to Washington, D.C. for five years. I came back to Nashville in early 2014, only to leave again in mid-2015 to study law in Memphis. My permanent home is in Nashville, and after the deep playoff run of 2017 converted my wife into a hockey fan, she bought a season ticket with my little sister. Now that I'm finished in Memphis, we're full STH's once more.

The Code

Some people will say The Code didn't protect Braden Holtby from Ray Emery's vicious attack. I say that story is still being written.

"Predators Hockey"

What does "Predators hockey" mean? It means your top scorers will put up middling offensive numbers, and that's maddening when you think about the coin the organization is shelling out for championship-level production.
