#1: Codey and Jeremy become dads
DISCLAIMER: We’ve been calling it “303′s Top 12 Moments of 2012″ for a reason.
As you know, Codey and I run this site. Codey sits in 303 and is the voice of the fan while I sit on blogger’s row where I can bring you access to the players and coaches. Not only are we partners-in-crime at the rink, but we’re good friends away from the rink as well. So it was a nice surprise when we found out that, within a month of each other, we’d be welcoming our first children into our respective families.
On May 11, 2012, Cameron Holland was born and became the newest member of the Nashville Predators fanbase. Just a few weeks later, on June 8, Mogilny Gover followed and promptly joined Cam in that club.

When Weber signed a 14-year, $110 million deal with Philadelphia on Wednesday, July 18, he was basically saying, “I will be a Flyer for the rest of my career...
#5: Poile rolls the dice at the trade deadline
Even after the trade deadline, there was one glaring need for the Nashville Predators. Of course, there’s always been this one certain need for the Predators. A dynamic, scoring winger.
The closest Nashville ever was to possessing a scoring winger was in 2008, the last season they had Alexander Radulov before he bolted for his native...
#4: NHL lockout may have killed Nashville’s momentum
There are two major professional sports teams in Nashville, Tennessee. And one of them, the perennial fan favorite, was terrible.
The Tennessee Titans recently closed out their abysmal NFL season 6-10. Things were so awful, they lost to a horrendous Jacksonville Jaguars team in a week 12 game that was critical for their playoff...
