Who doesn’t love a good carb, especially during Thanksgiving. I could literally eat my weight in rolls (ok not literally, but I definitely enjoy them). If there is one thing I’ve learned in my almost three decades on this earth, it’s that good rolls take time. Yes, you can get the store bought ones that are already prepared, but freshly baked rolls? Oh my, nothing compares. Rolls need time to cook, to rise, to be the contributor to the meal we know they can be, and the rolls for the Predators are players like Eeli Tolvanen, Phillip Tomasino, and even Dante Fabro.
We’ve been patiently waiting for these guys to take the next step and to contribute to the meal the way we truly believe they can. If they pan out, they could help the Predators take that much needed next step towards lifting a Stanley Cup. We have to hope out patience pays off, and they not only earn their spot at the table, but that they contribute to the meal in as special a way as we hope they truly can. Things are promising, but in the way you never know a roll’s true potential until you take a bite, we won’t know their true potential until they’re given true ice time in the NHL.
