VICTOR BARTLEY NEWS

Predators 5 – Blue Jackets 1

Optimistic Thoughts: James Neal was inserted back in the lineup after missing the last game with an illness, but interestingly didn’t return to his normal position on the first line. That was taken by Craig Smith who played spectacular in Neal’s absence and continued his strong play with another two goals tonight against the Blue Jackets. Victor Bartley has grown exponentially...

Nashville Predators 3 – Vancouver Canucks 1

Optimistic Thoughts: That first line is lethal. Forsberg notches two in this game and continues his stellar season. The power play looks to may have started to gain some traction by tallying again tonight. Victor Bartley didn’t look out of place after making his season debut due to Volchenkov’s four game suspension, and that will be much needed through the rest of the road trip...

Will Nashville’s defense regress during the transition to a new coach?

One of the biggest question marks this season isn’t necessarily about how the forwards will generate offense for the Predators, but more so how Nashville’s defensive corp will play with the potential for a brand new system and if having assistant coach Phil Housley back this season will help ease the transition from Barry Trotz to Peter Laviolette. Speaking with Housley during...

Pond hockey in Nashville? Imagine playing on the Cumberland…

Imagine this scene: the backdrop of the Nashville skyline with a body of water so frozen that people can grab some sticks and lace up their skates. In other words, imagine pond hockey on the Cumberland River. Recently, we’ve seen it in Akron, Ohio. We’ve seen it in Carmel, Indiana. We’ve even seen it as close as St. Louis, Missouri. But could we ever see it Nashville? “There...
