We are just twenty-two days away from October, 9; opening night in Smashville when the Predators host the Ottawa Senators. Only twenty-two more days until Nashville welcomes David Legwand back into the Music City.
Training camp starts on Friday and Predlines will be there to give you all coverage of camp throughout the weekend.
In case you missed it, we took a look at possible candidates for the Predator’s fourth-line and gave them their best case/worst case scenarios here.
Your Predlines Headlines for today:
Rich Clune and new Predator James Neal surprised a third-grade teacher with the delivery of her season tickets. I wonder how many kids saw Rich Clune and called him by his nickname, Dicky, as most of his fans and crowd yell at him throughout the course of a game in Nashville. Those are the true third-grade fans!
Filip Forsberg kept his point-streak alive for the tournament by scoring a goal, but the Predators fell to the Boston Bruin’s rookies by the score of 4-2. The Predators finished the tournament with an overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning and losses to the Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers.
Predators who made the list include this year’s first-round draft pick Kevin Fiala, Filip Forsberg, and Jonathan Diaby. Forsberg had a point in each game, but of the four-games i witnessed, Florida’s Vincent Trocheck should be a name on the list.
Fox Sports Tennessee will be showing 75 Predators games this season. No real surprises in the schedule release, but keep an eye out for the new pregame show called Predators LIVE!
