United The Preds Hope To Stand

from Josh Cooper of the Tennessean,

Fishing, hockey and bonding.

That’s what the Predators hope to accomplish — not exactly in that order — when they head to Florida for a week of games against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning.

“I want to see a very tight-knit team when we come back from Florida,” coach Barry Trotz said. “And three wins.”

For a group that often looked disjointed last season, but prides itself on “team” play, the trip should provide some level of cohesiveness. Some of the team-building activities include a fishing tournament along with some other off-ice events.

“We’re going to keep going over the foundation of our game,” Trotz said. “To me, it’s about creating our organizational foundation. Some guys are good mentors. We’re going to have some fun, we’re going to have some work, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
