This offseason wasn’t an easy one for NHL general managers. The expansion draft forced many to make hard decisions, and none had a harder time than Nashville Predators GM David Poile. He had to make a decision to protect either Calle Jarnkrok or James Neal, both of whom were key contributors during the Stanley Cup Final

Last season, the Predators combination of Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson helped bring national attention to Nashville. Certainly, the team’s defensive personnel is among the best in the league. However, before the acquisition and subsequent emergence of a true number-one center, the team remained predictably one-dimensional in its forward lines. This line of

It’s misleading to say the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators are going in opposite directions and that the divergence traces back to the P.K. Subban trade. Canadiens vs. Predators Sure, when the Canadiens host the Predators Saturday night at the Bell Centre, the visitors will be heading in with the best record in the Central

David Poile has been the general manager of the Nashville Predators since day one. He escorted the expansion franchise carefully into the National Hockey League back in 1997 and for long stretches of time, the hockey world wasn’t sure they’d see ten seasons with a lack of stars and dwindling support. Since then though, he

Nashville GM David Poile is known for his superb drafting, selecting the likes of David Legwand, Shea Weber, Pekka Rinne, Ryan Suter, and Scott Hartnell. While Poile has seen great success in many of his picks, he has also seen failure. Here are the five biggest Nashville Predators draft busts. Nashville Predators Draft Busts #5: Jonas

In a move that shook up the landscape of the NHL, a rare three-way trade took place Sunday night that saw the Matt Duchene-saga in Colorado end. Duchene was traded mid-game to the Ottawa Senators. The Senators in turn traded away Kyle Turris to the Nashville Predators as well as their first and third-round draft

As far as in-season NHL trades go, one would be hard-pressed to find a move in recent memory that was more eye-popping than the deal the Columbus Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators made on January 6, 2016. As we near the two-year anniversary of Ryan Johansen and Seth Jones swapping organizations, the trade remains as

The year is 1994. The location is Lillehammer, Norway. It’s a sudden death shootout in the Olympic Hockey finals. With the crowd screaming, Peter Forsberg is at the opposite blue line staring at Canada’s goalie, Corey Hirsch. Forsberg skates in and makes a move towards Hirsch’s right. All of a sudden with one hand he

With the start of the 2017-18 season just around the corner, the Nashville Predators are in the process of determining which players make their roster. The return of veterans like Scott Hartnell will no doubt provide some stability on a team that has lost some notable names during the offseason. On the other hand, unproven young

July 1 marks the beginning of free agency in the NHL. For fans around the league, it’s like Christmas but instead of getting toys, your team gets a fancy new hockey player (whose sweater you’ll probably want in December when it’s actually Christmas).
