PETER LAVIOLETTE RUMORS

Predators' Gaustad thriving in Laviolette's system

NASHVILLE -- It's easy to turn the focus away from the bottom six forwards in Nashville's lineup. The top line has been one of the most productive in the league, five of the top six forwards already have double-digit point totals, and Filip Forsberg has been at the center of that spotlight. It's only when the bottom six, more so the fourth line, makes an egregious mistake...

With new coach, Nashville Predators are preying on the NHL

Much praise has been heaped on Barry Trotz for the coaching job he did during his 15 seasons in Nashville. He was the first coach the franchise had ever known and they became known for playing a dull shut down style. Never having elite scoring talent the Predators under Barry Trotz effectively won close games and amassed 557 wins over 1196 games. However with the change to Peter...

With Laviolette at the helm, should Nashville’s hot start come as a real surprise?

When news broke during the offseason that Barry Trotz would be fired from his long-time post as Predators head coach, there seemed to be an overwhelming sense of tranquility amongst Nashville’s fanbase that had longingly sought some type of change after the previous two seasons had failed to live up to any semblance of expectations. With the hiring of high-profile free agent, and...

Peter Laviolette Takes Puck To The Head, Keeps Coaching (Video)

Peter Laviolette is as tough as the guys he puts on the ice. The Nashville Predators coach and Franklin, Mass., native took a puck to the face during the first period of Tuesday night’s game in Winnipeg after a pass went off the glove of Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba and into the bench. The puck caught Laviolette right above the eye and although he looked to be in obvious...

Predators coach Peter Laviolette drilled by puck, gets stitched up, returns (video)

In the umpteenth example illustrating that some of the toughest guys in professional sports are involved in hockey, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette showed that getting hit by a puck above the right eye and needing stitches would not be enough to keep him off the bench. Laviolette was caught on the noggin by...Read More The post Predators coach Peter Laviolette drilled...

Peter Laviolette Hitting All The Right Notes In Music City

#457223046 / gettyimages.com You could forgive Nashville Predators fans for being a bit skeptical heading into the 2014-15 season. For the first time since they joined the NHL a coach other than Barry Trotz would be behind the Nashville bench. Peter Laviolette was coming off a disappointing 0-3 start with the Philadelphia Flyers when he was relieved of his duties last October...

Laviolette on Nashville’s anemic powerplay: “The goals will come”

Through Nashville’s first five games of the season, their inability to convert on the powerplay was one of the most obvious questions that stuck out immediately. However, after Tuesday night’s game against the Arizona Coyotes, it seems like a much larger issue. After allowing four powerplay goals against the St. Louis Blues this past Saturday, the Coyotes completely shut down...

Laviolette “can’t wait” for camp, his first with a new team since 2001

Before taking the Nashville Predators job this past May, Peter Laviolette had been an NHL head coach three different times. He led the New York Islanders from 2001-2003, he was the bench boss of the Carolina Hurricanes from 2003-2008 and he was in charge of the Philadelphia Flyers from 2009-2013. In both Carolina and Philadelphia, he led his teams to the Stanley Cup Final, winning...

Preds select 17-year-old winger Kevin Fiala in first round

New Predators coach Peter Laviolette has made it clear that he wants his team to become for formidable on the offense end after finishing in the bottom half of the league in scoring last season. To help bolster the future ranks, the Predators aimed for scoring in the NHL Draft as well, selecting Swiss teenager Kevin Fiala with the No. 11 overall pick on Friday night. The 17-year...

Around the League: the Metro strikes back

This might be hockey blasphemy right now, but the Metropolitan is quietly becoming the strongest division in the NHL. I would also like to nominate Peter Laviolette for the Jack Adams award, hand Devan Dubnyk the Vezina, and tab the Sabres as Stanley Cup favorites. They’ll beat the Flames in seven, of course. Now that’s blasphemy. And not long ago, all of this slander came from...
