Filip Forsberg And The Ceiling Of The Nashville Predators

Filip Forsberg was widely considered as the best European Skater in the 2012 entry draft. His high end skillset, offensive creativity and elite hockey IQ made it seem like a lock for him to be selected just after the two clear studs Nail Yakupov and Alex Galchenyuk (and maybe fourth depending on how you feel […] The post Filip Forsberg And The Ceiling Of The Nashville Predators...

Peter Laviolette Hitting All The Right Notes In Music City

Nashville proving they can compete with the elite

Over the last seasons of Barry Trotz’s long tenure with the Nashville Predators, the team slowly began to lose their grip as one of the tougher teams to face in the Western Conference.

Predators 3, Blackhawks 2

Notes: The Predators are now the only team in the National Hockey League undefeated in regulation and are solidly atop the Central division. For the fifth time in seven games, the Predators gave up the first goal, but this time it certainly wasn’t for lack of effort.

Predators Practice Update – October 23rd, 2014

Six games into the season, the Nashville Predators sit alone atop the Central Division. Game seven, however, will give the Predators an opportunity to extend their lead to more than one point. With a chance for redemption after Saturday night’s loss on a shorthanded goal in overtime, Nashville prepares for their second meeting against the Blackhawks this season. “We had...

Predators' Filip Forsberg among top NHL rookies

The Filip Forsberg factor on the Predators' scoresheet is evident through the first six games this season. He's second among NHL rookies in scoring (1 goal, 4 assists) and has played well enough to be moved back to the top line with center Mike Ribeiro and winger James Neal. "Mike is a really good passer and Neal is a pure-goal scorer," Forsberg said. "I...

All Ryan Ellis haters please stand up!

Written By Joshua @Top6Grinder The Predators came away with another bonus hockey win against the Coyotes last night at Bridgestone arena.

The New Look Nashville Predators

from Katie Strang of ESPN, I still think the Nashville Predators are bound to come back to earth following their hot start to the season -- one that has them with the surprising lead in the stacked Central Division -- but the Preds secured another win Tuesday night, downing the Arizona Coyotes 4-3. New coach Peter Laviolette might have revitalized this team with a needed change...
