Matt Duchene Finally Lands In Nashville

Duchene was introduced in Nashville today...

from Robby Stanley at NHL.com,

Matt Duchene got a present during his first visit to Nashville since signing a seven-year, $56 million contract with the Nashville Predators on July 1.

In addition to his No. 95 Predators jersey, the forward received a custom-made Predators-themed guitar from Nashville mayor David Briley at Ford Ice Center.

"It's kind of surreal," Duchene said. "We talked for years of, 'If we end up in Nashville,' or that kind of thing over and over. Now we have and it's like all those things that we were talking about or dreaming and fantasizing about, we actually get to do now. It's really cool for us. We're trying to put some roots down here. It's a place that we've always thought would be a great place to raise a family. We're very excited for that prospect. We'll take care of all of that stuff so when the season comes around it's game on and all about the hockey."

What’s the deal with the Pred’s hate? Is it that over the top down there?

It’s a cheerful, amiable sort of Preds-hate

I can live with that
