Balanced Preds still running strong near the NHL quarter-pole mark

NASVHILLE, Tenn. -- Before the season started, Predators coach Peter Laviolette figured it would take roughly 20 games for everything new to start becoming routine. If that's the case, then the Predators (12-5-2) are well ahead of the curve, as the quarter-pole of the 82-game season nears. In fact, they're off to one of the fastest starts in franchise history, leading the Central...

Staying With the Lead Pack

The second month of the NHL season is in full swing and the Nashville Predators continue to run with the lead teams. A week full of Western opponents and the Preds continue to do solid work. Tuesday, on their return to Bridgestone Arena, the Edmonton Oilers awaited. Finally, the Preds got off to a quick start (something I’ve been calling for on this column). Racing out to a 3-0...

Filip Forsberg front runner in Calder Trophy race

I have to admit, I am not at all surprised to see Filip Forsberg as the front-runner in the Calder Trophy race. Forsberg, was ranked as the top European skater of the 2012 NHL Draft; the surprising thing to me was the fact that he landed in the Washington Capitals lap at  11th overall. I had the kid as a top-3 talent in my rankings that year. Perhaps, the most surprising thing...

Fil The Thrill! Filip Forsberg Continues To Shine

Back in April 2013 the Washington Capitals were interested in adding some veteran help for a playoff push. The Nashville Predators had some help in the form of Martin Erat and so they struck a deal. Erat went to the Caps and Filip Forsberg (1 G, 2 A, 5 SOG) came over to the Preds in a package deal. At the time no one really batted an eye, but now all eyes are wide open watching “Fil...

New-look offense driving Predators' quick start

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Predators forward James Neal admits having a goal scorer's mentality. Then again, that's what he's being paid to do. Neal has backed it up, too, scoring 88 goals the past three seasons -- fifth-most in the NHL during the stretch -- while playing for the Penguins. But a draft-day trade brought him to the Predators, whose avowed mission under first-year...

Predators finding new ways to win, hold on for 3-2 victory over Oilers

In years past for the Predators, there was the hidden potential of lulling themselves into a false sense of security against Western Canadian teams on weeknight contests at Bridgestone Arena. On a Tuesday night in Nashville, there was still the thought of a possible lopsided loss to the Edmonton Oilers, which wouldn’t be necessarily out of the question. Yet, this season is different...

Nashville Predators 2 – St. Louis Blues 1

Optimistic Thoughts: The  Nashville Predators outplayed the St. Louis Blues. That’s a statement that hasn’t been true for the last couple of years every time these two teams squared off.  The Blues are known for their big bodies and excellent ability to control puck possession, but the Preds new system was able to counteract that style with great puck possession of their own...

Filip Forsberg And The Ceiling Of The Nashville Predators

Forsberg proving he belongs in the NHL

In less than two weeks, Peter Laviolette may have unlocked more offensive potential out of Filip Forsberg than Barry Trotz did in a full season. Granted, Trotz may not have utilized Forsberg in the way he should have been, but Laviolette has been giving him the one thing that will prove if he’s the real deal or not: time with Nashville’s top lines. So far, the Swedish...
