PETER LAVIOLETTE RUMORS

The New Look Nashville Predators

from Katie Strang of ESPN, I still think the Nashville Predators are bound to come back to earth following their hot start to the season -- one that has them with the surprising lead in the stacked Central Division -- but the Preds secured another win Tuesday night, downing the Arizona Coyotes 4-3. New coach Peter Laviolette might have revitalized this team with a needed change...

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...

The Nashville Predators Look Like A Different Team

from Travis Yost of TSN, It’s hard – if not impossible – to get a read on a team after just two games, but the Nashville Predators have looked impressively different in their debut games under new coach Peter Laviolette. Laviolette’s promised to bring more offense to a Nashville organization that’s seen their goal-scoring dry up over the years, but early signs suggest...

A Start to Believe In

The Nashville Predators 2014-2015 campaign is off to a roaring start and Smashville spirits are high. Only ten teams remain undefeated in the NHL and the Preds are one of them. Nashville is making a habit of playing outstanding hockey in the third period and the results have equaled the effort. A 3-2 win against the Ottawa Senators started things off right and an even better 4-1...

Style of play suits Predators just fine

Predators coach Peter Laviolette and Stars coach Lindy Ruff are no strangers to NHL competition — or each other. They have a lengthy competitive history as head coaches in the Eastern Conference and will meet five times this season as Central Division rivals. So the style of Saturday's game was no surprise. "Great pace," forward Eric Nystrom said of the Predators...

Nashville Predators tickets up 50% from last season on secondary market

After making the playoffs in seven of eight seasons from 2003-04 to 2011-12, a stretch that hasn’t been approached by any other late-1990s or early-2000s expansion team, the Nashville Predators have found themselves outside the playoffs for two straight seasons.  As is frequently the case, disappointing results led to change. Gone is Barry Trotz, the only head coach the organization...

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...

Peter Laviolette out as Flyers coach

This morning, multiple sources reported that Peter Laviolette, the Flyers' coach for the last four seasons, was fired Monday morning after the team matched last year's franchise-worst 0-3-0 start. According to ESPN, it is the fastest firing in NHL history, matched only by Chicago's canning of Dennis Savard in 2008 after a 1-2-1 start. The team has looked sluggish in...
