Nashville Predators defenseman, P.K. Subban, will captain the Central Division All-Star team. Where does his newest All-Star sweater rank amongst the rest?
Nashville Predators are continuing to gain notoriety coming off their first Stanley Cup Finals trip. Specifically, Predators defenseman, P.K. Subban, has recently been named the captain of the Central Division team for this year’s All-Star game. He did so being the leading vote-getter out of all Central Division players. Being voted as captain was largely due to he being one of the most popular players in the game. However, he is now being backed by one of the fastest growing fan bases in the game. We have all seen the photos of Lower Broadway during the Predators run to the Finals last season. The Nashville Predators fever is spreading. Just take a look at all of those fans attending the game in Las Vegas this week.
There is no doubt the Predators are becoming more and more popular. There is a growing sense of anticipation of, not if, but when the Predators will finally break through and win the Stanley Cup. With Adidas starting their first season as the league’s jersey makers, there has been a great deal of anticipation for the kind of jerseys they could concoct for the All-Star game in Tampa Bay. Adidas officially unveiled the new sweaters Wednesday.
As you could have imagined, Adidas used some of their most popular colors from their shoe department. Let’s just face it, neon/highlighter colors are in right now. Fortunately, Adidas used those neons as simply accents, not the focal points. Overall, they are not bad. But, do these unis crack the top 5 of all time?
