Five Free Agents that Nashville should target tomorrow

With Free Agency beginning at 11am central time on July 1st, Nashville will most likely be diving into the deep end with the proverbial “Great Whites” this year to land themselves a bonafide number one center to pair up with James Neal. With news out on Sunday that the Predators nearly had a deal to bring Vincent Lecavalier in from Philadelphia, it’s another reminder that David...

What’s Wrong With Craig Anderson?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, It's quite possible the rising questions about Craig Anderson's character would be put to bed by somebody coming clean on his injury. Instead, we are left to believe a 'stinger' has kept the No. 1 goalie out of the line up for five games already -- and now at least two more going forward -- which has prompted experts on...
