Who the Lockout or Shortened Season Will Hurt the Most

The issue of a lockout or a shortened season is becoming more and more a probability rather than a possibility. The issue, as with any business and it’s employees, is primarily about money and how to better divide the plunder. If a work stoppage happens, as both sides are still far from hashing things out, […]

2013 Skate of the Union Player Panel and Executive Panel Video

Released from the Nashville Predators, the Skate of the Union panels were recorded and are now available to view online. This was quite an entertaining panel with a LOT of humor from the players themselves. You can tell that Colin Wilson and Hal Gill both have great senses of humor. You can check both videos […]

Battle Royale: 8 Defenseman, 1 Press Box

 With the signing of Scott Hannan last Friday, the Predators have shored up what many thought could be a sizable hole left by the departure of Ryan Suter. Rest assured that Hannan is nowhere near capable of filling Suter’s All-Star caliber role, but Hannan does provide the stop-gap and a great stay-at-home defensive presence that […]

What if a Lock-Out Happens? A Hard-Core Fan Perspective

Back in 2004, I was attending MTSU and finishing up my summer studies when a good friend of mine invited me to attend the draft party at Gillian’s for the Nashville Predators. I got to meet Adam Hall and Coach Peterson and it was a great day had by all, including the Predators acknowledging the […]

A Dangerous and Deceptive 3rd Line: Craig Smith

There was one current theme running through all the video clips that Kris has been posting in his Predator Top Ten List and that is the speed and reckless abandon in which Craig Smith plays every shift. While it may be a long shot that Smith will center the third line and make my premonition […]

Top Moments From 2011-2012 – #8: Vancouver Rollercoaster Comeback

A 3-1 lead after a dominating period of play versus the Vancouver Canucks in their own barn should hold…right? A 5-3 comeback lead, scoring 4 goals in less than 20 minutes, against a now deflated and defeated-looking Predators team should hold…right? Apparently the answer to both of those questions is a resounding no.

A Dangerous and Deceptive Third Line: Matt Halischuk

The one word many would use to describe the play of Matt Halischuk: hustle. The kid never gives up on a play. He uses his speed and tenacity to overwhelm his opponents and pick off the ensuing pass. He isn’t afraid to take any shots on net and that has resulted in Halischuk being seventh […]

Top Moments From 2011-2012 – #9: Kevin Klein the GOALIE

Now, Kevin Klein has been the whipping boy of Predators fans for quite a while. He obviously gets himself stuck in many a bad situation or at least that is how it looks on camera. However, coming down the backstretch of the 2011-2012 season, Klein actively began to grab positive attention to himself, starting when […]
