Predlines Morning Skate: Stop The Puck


Predlines is working on becoming your one stop NHL and Nashville Predators site. Morning Skate is a short NHL News post. Today’s edition is about Goalies. Let’s Skate.

It was a classic your pads are bigger than mine comment. New Jersey Devils starting goaltender Martin Brodeur took a shot at New York Rangers star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. If any goalie has the right to voice his thoughts it’s Brodeur. He has the cup, the titles and is a lock for the Hall of Fame.  Pro Hockey Talk  

Let’s all welcome back Tim Thomas. The Florida Panthers front office has made it know that Thomas will take part in training camp. Thomas took a year off from playing, and is said to be rested and in good shape. It is unknown if Thomas will make the Panthers roster. I do have one question. If the Panthers win the Stanley Cup will Thomas go to the White House? Sports.Yahoo.com

Finally we get to the Nashville Predators. Pekka Rinne is on the brink of becoming a star in the NHL. But, after last year’s bust of a season there are more questions than answers between the pipes in Nashville.  Check out what Pro Hockey Talk had to say.

Most figure Nashville isn’t going anywhere unless Rinne plays often and plays well, but it’s unclear if the team will reprise Rinne’s 2011-12 workload, when he set league highs in games (73), shots faced (2,153) and finished second in minutes played (4,168).

Thanks for skating by.
