Friday’s Dump & Chase: The Long, Slow Goodbye

Bryan has brought some news that’s hard for me to hear and harder for me to come to terms with. Other than that, there is still hockey in the bubble, but a few teams are headed home.

Nashville Predators News

Turris out, Tomasino in—Nashville Predators plan forwards’ futures | On the Forecheck
I, more than anyone I know, am incredibly sad about the way Kyle Turris was treated in Nashville. I wish nothing but the best for him. However, it sound like he's been on the way out for a long time. I do consider myself excited about the chance Philip Tomasino is going to get next season. I have always been able to rely on Eric for top-notch prospect coverage, so when he got excited about drafting him, I knew the Predators had something special.

Outstanding journalism by Bryan on this one!
