Best Decision Made With Fiala

In a surprise to some, Kevin Fiala was part of yesterday’s major cuts from the team’s training camp and will start the season with the Admirals. And that’s the right decision when stepping back and really analyzing the situation.   Yes, he made it very clear his intention was to make the opening night roster […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #64 Victor Bartley

We’re wrapping up the summer series of “Looking Back and Moving Forward” as hockey begins to creep around the corner. It’s been too long. With that being said, let’s finish strong with the Ottawa native, Victor Bartley.   Bartley is described as the extra guy or seventh defenseman in Nashville. Entering his fourth season with […]


Looking Back and Moving Forward: #63 Mike Ribeiro

The reclamation project that helped vault Nashville back into the playoff picture. The 35 year old center was brought on board last summer after being bought out by the Coyotes. What he accomplished on the ice this past season was above anyone’s expectations. Anchoring the first line from the outset, he compiled 62 points and […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #59 Roman Josi

The first Norris Trophy winner in Nashville Predators history. Go ahead and save that previous statement for use before Roman Josi’s career is over.. He’s that good of a defenseman and exemplifies the new age blueliner in the NHL.   At just 25, he has cemented his place in the top echelon of defenders after […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #57 Gabriel Bourque

A player who might be lost in the shuffle when training camp gets underway, but the team has a plan in mind for him as they signed the restricted free agent to a new deal when some thought Nashville may let him walk. The sides agreed to a one year “prove yourself” type of contract. […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #56 Kevin Fiala

Oh man the future is bright for this guy. A player that has all the makings to be an impact forward with the Predators as he continues to develop. Can we discuss for minute how exciting it is to have all these promising forwards in the Nashville pipeline while the team is already very competitive […]


Looking Back and Moving Forward: #38 Viktor Arvidsson

Size is overrated in the new NHL. The 5’9 Arvidsson proved that in his short stint with the Predators after a deserved call up in his rookie season. He was selected in the 4th round of last years draft and looks to have everything it takes to a productive forward at the top level. He […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #35 Pekka Rinne

A tale of two season for the Finnish giant. Coming off the hip surgery and the complications that compounded the injury, no one really knew if he could ever reach elite goalie status again in his career. The start of last season not only saw him regain his ability, but arguably reach new heights in […]


Looking Back and Moving Forward: #33 Colin Wilson

The last piece of the puzzle to be placed in the correct slot. Wilson was signed to a 4 year 15.75 million contract last week which more than likely set the roster for the upcoming season. Wilson changed his career path in a positive direction after his play the past year.   He always had […]


Why Next Season Might Be Nashville’s Best Shot at a Cup Run

Excitement is rampant for October to come around. A comeback year for the Predators saw them compete for the division title and give the eventually Stanley Cup winners all they could handle in the first round. Now, the page is turned to the upcoming season.   After Colin Wilson was signed to a new deal […]


Looking Back and Moving Forward: #30 Carter Hutton

The future hockey broadcaster. Hutton shows incredible charisma and knowledge of the game every time he gives an in-game interview. However, the problem is he’s on the bench too many games to give his two cents on the night’s action.   Hutton has been the backup since arriving two seasons ago from the Blackhawk’s AHL […]

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #28 Paul Gaustad

He has anchored the 4th line since arriving at the trade deadline before the 2012 playoff run. Gaustad is a player that divides opinion throughout the Nashville media and fans. Detractors claim he’s an overpriced bottom six veteran that is taking a roster spot from a prospect with a higher ceiling. Those in favor of […]


Looking Back and Moving Forward: #24 Eric Nystrom

A true fourth line type of winger. Nystrom followed up a slightly unexpected but productive first season in Nashville with an average one that ended too soon. He suffered a lower-body injury in early March that held him out of the lineup for the remainder of the year.   Nystrom chipped in offensively this season […]
