What The Nashville Predators Should Do At The Trade Deadline

from Joe Rexrode of The Tennessean,

So maybe saying the Predators should stand pat is a “no duh” kind of thing. But I keep hearing about Philadelphia power forward Wayne Simmonds. He sure would give this team the net-front presence it craves. And he'd almost certainly cost too much.

Why toy with the chemistry of a team that has demonstrated a lot of it by being in solid position despite all these fragmented lineups? David Poile traded a first-round pick last season for Ryan Hartman, who has 16 points in 48 games and is playing on the fourth line, and now Poile is down to more picks, Eeli Tolvanen and Dante Fabbro as viable trade assets … if he doesn’t want to dip into the Preds’ roster....

To me, you make all inquiries and ultimately go with your core. You swing a smaller deal to add physicality if one emerges. You hope Laviolette figures a way to get a bunch of guys who have done a lot of good work on the power play together to remember how they did it.

Early Congratulations To The Nashville Predators

via Sports Illustrated,

Here are our predictions for the teams and individuals that will win championships in 2019, be it on Jan. 7 at the College Football Playoff National Championship, in March at the NCAA tournament or in October at the World Series.


It’s finally time for the Nashville Predators to win the Cup. After losing in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2017 and winning the Presidents’ Trophy for the league’s most points scored in 2018, the Predators are due for their first-ever title in 2019.

The Lightning and Maple Leafs have held down the fort with the Predators at the top of the standings through the first couple months of the season, but Nashville seems to be the most resilient. Even after suffering injuries to several major players—P.K. Subban, Pekka Rinne, Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, to name a few—the Predators haven’t really wavered. If they get their injury bug out of the way now and have the majority of their firepower return within the next month or two, expect the Preds to bust out one final surge heading into the playoffs that will finally see them hoist Lord Stanley. —Kristen Nelson
