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.
