Nashville Predators Preseason Schedule

The NHL has released their preseason schedule. It will consist of 16 days, and 104 games. In just over a month the puck will drop on the 2013-2014 season.  

I might be alone on this but I doubt it.  I strongly dislike the preseason. From a fans prospective it is a poor example of the game. Further more it only gives players a greater chance of suffering a season ending injury. While I understand the reasoning for playing the games; there must be a better way of figuring out the rosters. I can hear some people now. How do you want  teams to figure out the rosters with out watching the players play in  “real” games? That’s my point. It’s not a real game. Some players only go 3/4 or 1/2 speed. Other plays who are on the brink of being cut go all out. It just doesn’t sit well with me.

Nashville Preseason Schedule (

MONDAY, SEPT. 16 Nashville at Florida (split-squad doubleheader, 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.)

THURSDAY, SEPT. 19 Nashville at Tampa Bay, 7:30 p.m.

SUNDAY, SEPT. 22 NY Islanders at Nashville, 6 p.m.

TUESDAY, SEPT. 24 Tampa Bay at Nashville, 8 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 25 Nashville at Washington, 7 p.m.

FRIDAY, SEPT. 27 Nashville at NY Islanders, 7 p.m.

It shouldn’t take an off-season, a month of training camp and 6 “games” to figure out your team? Come on. I know that the preseason will never go away, but the NHL should go to a 4 game preseason. There should be no back to back nights, and teams should not be allowed to play the same team during the preseason. If a team is evaluating  their players during the preseason they should play as many teams as possible. But, that’s just the way I see it.

    If there’s a better way of figuring out a roster, then why not propose it instead of just constantly pumping out loosely opinionated blurbs?

      Its obvious, simulate the games on NHL13. Then show the virtual game on the jumbotron so the fans can gather to watch the sport they love. Just don’t let the players on ice where they run the risk of hurting themselves.

  • HockeyMoose

    Can we draw straws? That seems a less dangerous way to decide who makes the team. Unless the guys get rowdy and shoot spitwads with them.

  • Patrick Helper

    Its not a matter of loosely opinionated blurbs. It designed to get people to talk about it. And I said what I would do. You guys seem to have a lot to say. Why not write about it?

    • BullMoose

      Maybe we already do…

    • HockeyMoose

      We are talking about it.

      Maybe the reason we comment is to help Predlines think about what they are publishing before hitting the Publish button. It’s not too difficult to fix spelling and grammar mistakes.

      • Patrick Helper

        No it’s not. But just like anything sometimes you miss them. I will
        make sure to pass your concerns on predlines Staff writers. Honestly I don’t mind the comments, its good to have a bit of fun with readers. If you are writing I’m sure we would like to read your stuff. Thanks for reading.

            We are going on day 9 of the new, and with most new things there will be speed bumps.

            Please understand that every writer on is just getting their feet wet. We will make every attempt to correct anything that is pointed out to us, and we will do our best to give you valuable content.

            Your comments are welcome, and will be taken to heart. However, remember this is a fan page. The writers are fans, and will voice their thoughts in their work. It is natural for there to be some level of disagreement. Please be respectful.
