The Nashville Predators defied popular assumption as General Manager, David Poile (left) announced that his team would match the heavily front-loaded offer sheet to defenseman Shea Weber issued on July 19th by the Philadelphia Flyers and GM Paul Holmgren (right).

Nashville Predators General Manager David Poile has a longstanding reputation as a cool customer. However, as this summer of record-breaking heat in Music City wears on, the cards he’s being dealt are making it tough for the Preds venerable front office boss to maintain his poker face.

Patience Requested In the wake of the Nashville Predators‘ abrupt end-of-season last night, losing to the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1, I began writing my typically long response to the teams’ Stanley Cup Western Conference Semifinal Series and the premature abbreviation of Nashville’s long and hopeful season, but then thought better of it. What I would have [...]
The Phoenix Coyotes foiled the efforts of the Nashville Predators at every turn last Friday night in Game 4 of their Western Conference Semifinal match-up at Bridgestone Arena. In a scene typical of the Coyotes’ smothering team defense from that game, above, Phoenix forwards Martin Hanzal (left) and Radim Vrbata (right) deny Nashville forwards Patric Hornqvist [...]
The look says it all. Nashville Predators forward Gabriel Bourque appears despondent as the Phoenix Coyotes celebrate following Martin Hanzal’s second period goal Sunday in the Coyotes’ Game 2 victory over Nashville at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, AZ. Down 2-0 in their second round playoff matchup, the Preds must now find a way to bounce back [...]
Bedlam in Music City. The Nashville Predators bench erupts following their 2-1 series-clinching victory over longtime Central-Division foes, the Detroit Red Wings last Friday night at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The Preds now move on to the second round versus the Phoenix Coyotes this Friday at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, AZ (Photo: John Russell/NHLI via [...]
Few seem to remember that Nashville Predators’ shutdown defenseman, Kevin Klein was considered one of the better two-way blueliners available when the Preds selected him in the second round of the storied 2003 NHL Entry Draft. Earlier this week the six-year veteran did his best to jog the collective memory of the Detroit Red Wings, [...]
What’s love got to do with it? How simplistic is it to say that the success of Nashville Predators’ dynamic duo of Head Coach Barry Trotz (left) and General Manager, David Poile is attributable to something so fickle as love? Well, okay…VERY. Nevertheless, if it isn’t smoke & mirrors, it’s gotta be something. And with [...]
The team-building tag-team of Head Coach Barry Trotz (right) and General Manager David Poile (left) have been the Nashville Predators’ collective guiding force since Day One of the franchise. The Preds will make their seventh playoff appearance in the last eight NHL seasons Wednesday night versus the Detroit Red Wings at Bridgestone Arena. How do [...]
That skinny Russian kid is back, only now he’s a full-grown, international superstar. Erstwhile Nashville Predators first-round draft pick, Alexander Radulov, having recently obtained his release from the KHL’s Salavat Yulaev Ufa, rejoins the Preds for the remainder of the NHL season, beginning with this Thursday’s matchup versus the Pittsburgh Penguins. Rads is a Predator [...]

As a season ticket-holder of the Nashville Predators since 2000, I've learned that you may not HAVE to have a good sense of humor to survive as a hockey fan in Music City, but it sure helps!
