As much as it stings to lose James Neal to Vegas, the Nashville Predators are mostly enjoying a strong off-season. More specifically, it’s been a pretty solid week for GM David Poile & Co. A day after signing Frederick Gaudreau to a team-friendly deal, the Predators handed speedy, intriguing forward Pontus Aberg a two-year, $1.3 […]
For a seat inside Bridgestone Arena, the prices on the secondary market were extraordinary: Game 3, for example, had a cheapest-priced ticket of around $1,100. It was actually cheaper for a Predators fan to fly to Pittsburgh, book a hotel and scalp a ticket for Game 2. Andrew Fudge of Clarksville, Tenn., was one of […]
Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher marked seven sweet years of marriage by celebrating their wedding anniversary on Monday, July 10, with a romantic date night. Nashville Predators Captain Fisher, like his wife, also took to social media to document the special day.
With Anders Lindback back in the Nashville Predators’ system, there was a chance someone would be squeezed out to make room. The goalie was placed on waivers today, as TVA’s Renaud Lavoie reports. Mazanec, 25, has experienced ups and downs, even including his best opportunity (when he was just OK in 25 games for Nashville […]
Part of this is the harsh education some teams have gotten, learning that unrestricted free agency is the devil’s tool. Another example of a player with buyout money taking a low salary – though not the best example of it, as you’ll see – is Hartnell, who goes back to the Nashville Predators on a […]
The Predators confirmed the deal a couple hours later. Perhaps, but TSN’s Bob McKenzie believes that they acquired him to “keep him in the lineup.” That doesn’t necessarily rule out the Predators moving someone else on their defense thanks to the addition of Emelin, mind you.
Of the many reunions that took place on the first day of free agency the Nashville Predators’ move to bring back Scott Hartnell on a one-year, $1 million contract might have been the best one. It also might have been one of the better free agent signings — reunion or not — any team made […]
After winning back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins it appears as if veteran center Nick Bonino is moving on and will be signing with the team he just helped beat in this year’s Final. According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, Bonino has signed with the Nashville Predators on Saturday on a four-year contract that will […]
Enough can’t be said about the value of Nick Bonino to the Pittsburgh Penguins during their two Stanley Cup runs. He arrived at a time when their bottom six was in shambles, to the point where that deficiency was a driving force behind GM Ray Shero’s
Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis made an appearance on a Hamilton, Ont., television station Wednesday, sporting a large brace running almost the full length of his right leg. Ellis left Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final with an undisclosed injury and didn’t return in what was a blowout loss to the Penguins. During his […]
TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that the Vegas Golden Knights are likely to select James Neal from the Nashville Predators. Vegas could flip him during this off-season to a team who might get more use out of a reliable, big scorer on a $5 million expiring deal. The Golden Knights could also opt to keep Neal […]
David Poile was in Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee’s shoes 19 years ago. The Nashville Predators were an expansion team and Poile, the only general manager the franchise has had, constructed their first roster by selecting one player from the NHL’s other 26 teams. A player the caliber of the one he lost […]
