Looking Back and Moving Forward: #6 Shea Weber

The Captain. Those words best describe what Shea brings to the team each and every night. Anchoring the defense core, firing cannons from the point, and delivering physical punishment are just a few of the duties laid on his shoulders.   While Weber saw a slight slip in production with 11 less points this season, […]

Ryan Ellis Cropped

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #4 Ryan Ellis

The Ontario native took a step forward in the 2014-2015 season. After inking a new deal before the start of the season, Ryan proved the new five year contract was well worth it by performing at a consistent level throughout the season.   The former first round pick definitely had his fair share of struggles […]

Seth Jones Intro

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #3 Seth Jones

The second year defenseman avoided a sophomore slump after a solid rookie season, but didn’t exactly make a huge leap, either. The great physical skill set is easily seen on a nightly basis with his tremendous skating ability and offensive prowess. On the other hand, there are times Seth looks like a young defenseman and […]


How The Preds Fill A Future Need

The season had its ups and downs that ended in a heartbreaking series lost, but through it all worth it in the end. The optimism for the future is clear as young guys stepped up to the center stage and performed while prospects continue to develop at a rapid pace in the minors.   Arguably […]


“In the Corners” Nashville vs Chicago Preview

This week we are all excited for the beginning of the NHL Playoffs. I know there will be plenty of series previews for the Predators vs Chicago Blackhawks to read so I wanted to do something a little bit different for mine. I asked one of my favorite writers that I talk Preds hockey with […]


Fizzling Into the Playoffs

The Nashville Predators are hoping that their next few weeks will erase most of the memory of these past two. They have not played well heading into the NHL post-season and in fact have lost 6 in a row. The good news is that the regular season is really about qualifying for the post one. […]

Three Reasons: Why Nashville will and won’t have a deep playoff run

The Predators may have locked a playoff spot in the Western Conference divisional semi-finals recently, but they still have plenty of work ahead if the ultimate plan is for a parade down Broadway in downtown Nashville this June. On February 14th — one day before the trade acquiring Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli from Toronto — Nashville sat far atop the […]


The Central Finale Awaits

The NHL has plenty of intrigue heading into this final week of the regular season. At the forefront for fans of the Nashville Predators is just who will win the Central Division? 3 teams at the top of the Division separated by just 3 points with 3 games remaining. St. Louis sits at the top […]

Playoff Match-ups: How do they work?

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had a number of folks approach me to ask just how playoff seeding and positioning works for the first two rounds of the playoffs. Since the re-alignment a couple of seasons back, this can be kind of confusing if you didn’t collect the basic understanding of it when the league first […]


The Ten Most Irreplaceable Predators

As we head towards the postseason, we all hope for an injury free and successful playoff campaign. But this is hockey, injuries happen. The last two weeks have seen quite a few Predators head to the sideline due to injury. That brings up an interesting topic of discussion. Who would Nashville miss the most if […]
