Nashville Predators News & Notes

Why Predators are one of NHL's worst teams after 10 games in 2016 | The Tennessean
Why must my two favorite sports teams (the Preds and the Auburn football team) get off to such bad starts? I really don't appreciate that same roller coaster of emotions twice in one year.

Ryan & Randall Johansen Part Of "Crazy Hockey Family"
I always love reading the stories about how players got to the NHL and the work they put in. No player who made it to the NHL and was successful did so without busting their tail.

The Nashville Predators staff constructs their sixth playground with KaBoom!, this time at St. Mary Villa Child Development Center. I love that they're always active in the community.

Ads Claw Back Against the Wolves; Win 3-2 in Shootout | Admirals Roundtable
Gutsy win by the Admirals. Juuse Saros came up big with his fifth shootout win. He has yet to lose in an AHL shootout and he has only let in 1 goal on 16 shots with that goal against coming in tonight's game.

Dante Fabbro and Patrick Harper each came off with an assist in the Terrier's 4-4 tie.

Like father like son. Max Domi took out Kesler with one punch.

Carey Price can impact game before it starts | NHL
The Canadiens are a fun team to watch. A lot of talent, hard hitting, and great goaltending.

The NHL is bringing in younger and younger talent and I love it!

God I hope not.

A look at potential hot-seat situations across the NHL | TSN
It would take a lot to get Laviolette on the hot seat but the Predators have to start finding success with the talent they have on the ice.

Don’t look now, but Sidney Crosby is leading the NHL in points per game | PensBurgh
I really hope Crosby gets over his concussion issues. It's really sad to see a player with all of that talent not be able to play a full season in the NHL on a consistent basis.

Burke in fighting mood, argues size does matter in the NHL | Saskatoon StarPhoenix
I agree with this. Hockey's just like every business there is. You can't have a team of guys that play the same way, have the same skillset, and are all small.

McJesus is at it again.

NHL - Small players on the rise, #CustanceCorrespondence | ESPN
The Predators are definitely going all-in on smaller fast players and it is no better indicated than in the 2016 NHL draft. Samuel Girard: 5'10". Rem Pitlick: 5'9". Patrick Harper: 5'10". A lot of speed and skill and very little size.
