With the resigning of Jason Kirk, there was a big void left for Predlines to fill. I’m happy to announce that I’m going to be taking over the editor role for the Predlines site starting immediately. First I would like to thank Jason, who provided a great amount of writing to the site over his time here. He pushed this rock up a hill, and made it a very enjoyable site to be a part of. I am hoping I can carry on the Predlines tradition that he started. Any time you’d like to come in and write for us Jason, it would be an honor to have you around.
Now that we got that bit out-of-the-way, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Seth Luttrell, and I’m from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which is just south of Nashville itself. I’ve been a Tennessee boy most of my life, with some odd appearances in Florida here and there. So like most of you, I got to see the Predators for the first time in 1998 and haven’t looked back since. I was there for the good times, the bad times, and the times we would all just like to forget. I was there when were scrapping through with Greg Johnson and other outcasts that other teams didn’t really want. I was there when we had to deal with the unfortunate Hamilton debacle of 2007. I was there throughout the Del Biaggio fraud and ownership turmoil. I was there before Shea Weber and Pekka Rinne became household names, and especially at a time where it was cool to leave Nashville. I’ve seen the faces that come in, and I’ve watched them walk out the door leaving 17,130 people screaming right behind them.
But that’s the past, I’m here to talk about the now and more importantly the future. I’m hoping to continue the building that Jason has done here, and make Predlines one of the most successful blogs around. From what I can tell, we’ve already got a fantastic group of writers together, and we’ve obviously got a rabid fan base that loves hearing about their Nashville Predators. Throughout the summer, I hope to be bringing you guys some great stuff, including potential free agent signings, potential trades, maybe even a mock draft or two. When the preseason rolls around, we’ll tell you who to keep an eye out for, and whose got the potential to break the mold for the Predators next season. And when the puck finally drops on the regular season, we’ll be bringing you breakdowns of every game, as well as looking ahead to the next game. We will also be keeping a close eye on our counterparts in Milwaukee and will try to let you know how the baby Preds are doing. I’m hoping to keep up the live tweeting during Predator games, as well as potentially doing other cool things down the line. That’s all I got for now, be on the lookout over the next couple of days for the first of what should be many potential posts over the summer.
