LeBron James isn’t Happy with Cavaliers Management

LeBron James will be returning to the Cavs for one more season as he plays out his contract, but he has a player option for 2018-19, which has many predicting that he’ll be departing Cleveland at that time. Whether he goes to Los Angeles — where he owns a house — or returns to Miami, […]

Doc Rivers Speaks Out About Chris Paul

Chris Paul recently departed Los Angeles for Houston after making it clear that he wanted to leave the Clippers, and head coach Doc Rivers clearly isn’t worried about life in the NBA after CP3. The Clippers did get a nice haul in the trade — with at least three guys who can start for the […]

The Predators Clash with the Oilers

After missing 16 games due to injury, P.K. Subban was back for the Predators when they last clashed with the Edmonton Oilers a few days ago in their away game at Rogers Place. This was certainly the right time for him to be back, against an Oilers team that had won four straight games. That […]

P.K. Subban is on Quite the Hot Streak

P.K. Subban’s career with the Predators has started out with a bang. After coming to Nashville via trade, the former Canadien has been lighting the lamp non-stop for the Preds. His penchant for putting goals in the net has caused Nashville’s odds to improve on a number of sports betting sites.  Following up a strong […]

Important Message

First of all, I just want to give a huge thank you to Kris Martel for giving me my start in writing two years ago. If he hadn’t responded to my inquiry as a freshman in college, there’s no telling where I would be or if I would have ever found the passion I have […]

2016 Stanley Cup ticket prices drop

The Pittsburgh Penguins (2-1) take on the San Jose Sharks (1-2) tonight in Game 4 of the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, and ticket prices have been noticeably cheaper than last year. According to data pulled by TicketNetwork, the average price of a Game 4 ticket is $865, compared to $996 in 2015. Location is […]

Disappointing End to a Franchise Changing Season

When the sting of defeat begins to fade away and the Crying Jordan memes latch on to its next victim, the Nashville Predators and fans will realize the progress the franchise has made this season. The 5-0 drubbing in Game 7 wasn’t how it was supposed to end. This almost sports documentary worthy campaign deserved […]

Predators’ Top Players Must Produce

An emotional and draining early morning Game 4 victory left little in the gas tank when the Nashville Predators flew back to California for a vital Game 5 Saturday night. The contest went even worse than expected. San Jose set the pace from the outset and never looked back as Nashville’s taxing travel schedule looked […]

Sharks Present Different, Perhaps Tougher Challenge For Nashville

The Nashville Predators conquered a monumental task by winning their first ever Game 7 against the favored Anaheim Ducks. However, excitement is short lived in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the second round starting just 48 hours after the big win. The San Jose Sharks are now waiting after dispatching a cup favorite Kings team […]

Predators’ 2-0 Lead Shouldn’t Shock Everyone

The Nashville Predators are holding a 2-0 advantage in a playoff series for the first time in their franchise’s history. That’s quite an accomplishment, but it shouldn’t be looked upon as a miracle. Despite how much of the hockey community picked Anaheim to win, this isn’t a David versus Goliath matchup.   Yes, the Ducks […]

Nashville’s Blueprint to Playoff Success

It’s actually here. The Stanley Cup playoffs begin this week. With many tasks, a plan to complete that goal is begun by preparing and mapping out a blueprint or steps to follow for success. While winning playoff hockey games isn’t comparable to building a skyscraper, the premise remains the same.   Healthy Blueline   Nashville […]

Nashville Built a Contender in an Unconventional Way

How do you assemble a team into becoming Stanley Cup champions in the NHL today? The question every general manager strives to answer. There’s the being so bad and winning the lottery a couple of times method Chicago and Pittsburgh have used to their benefit. That’s the easiest way to add franchise players if the […]

The Possible Risk of Signing Vesey Going Unnoticed

It’s been on everyone’s mind since Jimmy Vesey decided to return for his senior season at Harvard. Will he sign with the Predators or opt for free agency? The #VeseyWatch debacle will finally come to a close as early as this weekend if his team is unable to defeat the favored Boston College. The Hobey […]

Regaining Home Ice Advantage

Nashville finds themselves in an interesting position with 12 games left to in the regular season. They’ve seemingly locked in their position as the first wild card by being seven points ahead of Colorado and trailing Chicago by five points for third in the Central. ( I know five points isn’t insurmountable, but it’s unlikely.) […]

Defensive Pair Shuffling Still a Concern

Before the blockbuster trade for Ryan Johansen Nashville rolled out the same defensive pairs every night. Weber-Josi, Ekholm-Ellis, and Jackman-Jones were locked in each  time the lineup was announced. Since Jones was traded, Weber and Josi have been the only mainstay (when healthy) as a pair.   There’s very little to complain about these days […]
