Looking Back and Moving Forward: #59 Roman Josi

The first Norris Trophy winner in Nashville Predators history. Go ahead and save that previous statement for use before Roman Josi’s career is over.. He’s that good of a defenseman and exemplifies the new age blueliner in the NHL.   At just 25, he has cemented his place in the top echelon of defenders after a fifth place showing in this past season’s Vezina trophy voting....

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #38 Viktor Arvidsson

Size is overrated in the new NHL. The 5’9 Arvidsson proved that in his short stint with the Predators after a deserved call up in his rookie season. He was selected in the 4th round of last years draft and looks to have everything it takes to a productive forward at the top level. He first captured eyes at the development camp last season with his quickness and creativeness on...

Time for the Nashville Predators to trade Shea Weber?

I ran across an article the other day discussing whether or not it was the right time to potentially trade Shea Weber. At first, I thought it was a crazy idea. We’re talking about a guy who has a shot so hard that the puck has gone through the net, the leader of the team and the face of the franchise. At the same time, we are talking about a guy who signed an offer sheet with...
