Thoughts and concerns for the Predators on the upcoming season
The NHL is back, so what now?
With hockey back, what does the Predators roster look like (for now)?
BEST OF MAXIM
The Nashville Predators haven’t taken the ice since May 7, 2012. On July 4, the roster got a major face lift. And thanks to the lockout, most players in the AHL won’t have a true training camp in order to snag an NHL roster spot.
So what does the Preds roster look like as of this moment?

Bringing a merciful end to their collective, pent-up anxiety and delivering a much-needed and deserved relief to NHL fans the world over, the lockout, something that has maligned and made a mockery of the league while making both the owners and players villains and objects of abject derision, finally ended on Sunday morning. The conclusion of the lockout obviously was big news all...
In evaluating his team, where should David Poile turn his attention to improve the roster? Perhaps he should move the big picture to the forefront...
Jimmy Vesey is no longer just a standout freshman at Harvard and a third-round pick of the Nashville Predators. He’s a gold medalist.
Vesey helped lead Team USA win the title at the World Junior Championship in Russia, even jumping to the squad’s first line after some solid play. The North Reading, Mass., native could have NHL glory in his future, but Saturday’s victory in...
Dear Nashville Predators Season Ticket Holders,

On behalf of the ownership group and our entire organization, we thank you for your patience and commitment and we are thrilled to announce that the NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (“CBA”).

Two Nashville Predators prospects and one professional Predator participated in winter tournaments while the National Hockey League was lockedout. Miikka Salomaki and Jim Vesey played in the World Juniors, while Patric Hornqvist played in the Spengler Cup, both great tournaments to watch.
Patric Hornqvist gained some experience during the lockout playing in the...
They're back! Many Predators were practicing today and more will join the ranks tomorrow as their busses, trains and planes arrive in Nashville from Milwaukee and the rest of the world.
It's a very exciting week for the many of us who will not be boycotting the NHL as we may or may not have guaranteed to do out of sheer anger and frustration over the past four months...
NASHVILLE - And on the 113th day of the lockout, they said let their be hockey.
They are NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr, who emerged early Sunday morning from a final 16-hour bargaining session in New York City to decree the lockout over and that league players and owners would soon ratify a new collective bargaining agreement...

The hockey season in Nashville is only a wisp away from either starting on January 15th or 19th. With that in mind, the Predators along with every NHL team will have to go through a blindingly fast training camp to A: get everybody back home from overseas play and AHL call-ups and B: get everyone on the same page through line chemistry, playbook saturation...

With a new CBA agreed upon early this morning, the 6th of January, the odds of hockey being back in our lives around January 19th is around 100%. Now, all we can do is speculate about the upcoming season and about how the Predators will perform in this shortened, undoubtedly crazy, season.
I’ve come up with a short list of things that...

Ladies and gentlemen… the end is near.
After months of speculation, hair pulling, mental breakdowns, and screaming obscenities towards the NHL and NHLPA, it seems that the two sides finally have decided to play nice and come to an agreement on the next Collective Bargaining Agreement. In return, the fans who have decided to stick around will get an opportunity...
