The Ten Most Irreplacable Predators

As we head towards the postseason, we all hope for an injury free and successful playoff campaign. But this hockey, injuries happen. The last two weeks have seen quite a few Predators head to the sideline due to injury. That brings up an interesting topic of discussion. Who would Nashville miss the most if they were to miss time?   This isn’t technically a ranking of the best...

Zone Starts, Corsi, and the Percentages

Matthew Coller has an interesting article on Puck Prospectus about Shea Weber and his poor Relative Corsi. His conclusion was that Weber’s poor Relative Corsi is largely due to his playing time with Paul Gaustad in which he posted a very poor CF% along with having a very heavy defensive zone start. His conclusion was that Weber’s poor [...] The post Zone Starts, Corsi, and...

Kyle Chipchura Goes Down Via One Punch, Paul Gaustad Keeps Punching

  Nashville Predators tough guy Paul Gaustad probably could’ve stopped throwing punches after that first right landed clean on Kyle Chipchura’s face Monday night during the Predators-Coyotes game. Again, I’m no expert on NHL fighting like 99.9% of the Internet, but it seems Kyle had enough after that first one landed clean on his nose. Maybe I just don’t know enough about...

I’m So Glad I Got Into Blogging And Not NHL Fighting

  So here we have Cody McLeod vs. Paul Gaustad last night in Nashville. Just another Tuesday night in January. It wasn’t a classic fight from either of the guys, but it was still a Tuesday night fight where McLeod was an inch away from breaking Gaustad’s nose with that right hook. Meanwhile, I was sitting on the couch with my feet up on the coffee table, blanket on the legs...

Sabres midseason Tank Awards by @lukewachob

The Sabres are 41 games into the 2014-2015 NHL season, which means it’s time to hand out some midyear awards. Get ready for CONTROVERSY. MVP – Most Valuable Person – Darcy Regier Yep. That’s right. The most valuable part of the Sabres organization is not part of the Sabres organization at all. Darcy was mostly hated by Sabres fans at the end of his tenure as GM (fired in...

Improving Face-offs Could Lead To Power Play Success

The one glaring weakness in an otherwise tremendous season for the Nashville Predators is the power play. Special teams have been discussed ad nauseum for the majority of the season because most nights the man advantage is sub-par at best while their five on five play is among the best in the entire league. A rather baffling scenario that with the influx of great offensive talent...

Predators recall Stalberg, put Paul Gaustad on IR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Nashville Predators have recalled forward Viktor Stalberg from Milwaukee and the AHL a day after waiving him to fill a roster spot after placing forward Paul Gaustad on injured reserve. The Predators announced the moves Friday before leaving for a three-game road trip. Gaustad, 32, has missed three straight games with a lower body injury. The Predators...

The Most Useless Player on Each NHL Team

With thirty teams at twenty-three players per roster, there are currently 690 active players in the NHL. While only a micro-fraction of this number represents the NHL’s elite, the majority of the 690 active players in the NHL are compromised of good-to-average players. When I say good-to-average, I mean players who typically score in the 30-50 point range. This does not include...

Nashville Predators 3 – Colorado Avalanche 0

Optimistic Thoughts: Anton Volchenkov and Paul Gaustad returned to the lineup after healing from minor injures, but Gaustad unfortunately was reinjured very early in the game and was unable to return. The forward lines were shuffled with the second line of Craig Smith, Colin Wilson, and Calle Jarnkrok being broken up. Olli Jokinen joined Wilson and Jarnkrok while Smith skated with...

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 that the...

Predators 1, Oilers 0

Notes: There were very few signs of the high octane Preds we’ve been seeing lately. The Oilers dominated the neutral zone, took the first nine shots on goal and won 13 faceoffs to the Preds’ 4 through the first period. Although the Predators managed some solid scoring chances here and there, this was very much the Pekka Rinne show, as the goalie bailed out the team on 37 shots...

Predators 2, Jets 1

Notes: It’s been said to death at this point, but the Preds need to quit their habit of allowing the first goal and picking up the pace for the comeback win. It’s made for some exciting hockey and they’ve been mostly successful in pulling it off so far this season, but it’s not a sustainable routine, especially with their special teams, which continue to be abysmal. Nashville...

.@SabresStats: Faceoffs Don’t Matter. Or do they?

So far this season, the Sabres have managed to win 41.7% of the faceoffs that they have taken.  That’s the worst in the NHL on the young season, and it’s not even close.  Florida currently sits in 29th place, just ahead of Buffalo, at 46.2%.  In fact, the worst full season win percentage in the last 16 seasons was 44.1% by the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 1997-98 season...

After opening the season with two straight wins, the Predators are back on the ice tonight against the Calgary Flames.
