Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: An Old Foe In The Motor City

Preds-Wings, coaching carousel, cursed numbers, and doggie business highlight Tuesday’s headlines.

Nashville Predators News & Notes

Predators Recall Luff, Harpur from Milwaukee | Nashville Predators
This makes sense with a four-game road trip upcoming (that includes a back-to-back). The Preds have been playing with just 12 active forwards since re-assigning McCarron last week. Luff has been one of Milwaukee's better forwards this season, and he has a good little chunk of NHL experience, so it's worth giving him a look.

This game was an absolute mess. What Spezza did to Pionk was dirty AF, but at the same time, you have to give the refs from that game a bit of the blame for not getting the players under control sooner, especially after Neal Pionk's knee-to-knee hit on Rasmus Sandin, which earned him a two-game suspension, went unpenalized.

I would hate to see Marc Bergevin get the job because the Canucks need literally anyone else. But at the same time, I would love to see Marc Bergevin get the job because it would be hilarious.
