Ron Wilson was my first choice, but he was my 2nd. The guy in the Red Wings AHL team was a good choice too. Its Lavi time in Smashville!

Glad this is done. End speculation, let the coaching carousel continue without the Preds in the mix. Lavy will be a good coach for these guys... the new era begins now.

Hell yes. Watch this.

Laviolette: "My challenge will be to impart a system that enables our young forwards to thrive and reach their offensive potential."

I'd express my excitement over this, but I lack any. We'll see how it goes. Hopefully a new message and a new plan injects some life into the organization.

Predsrule 05-06-2014 01:13 PM

well you wanted new now we have it. new system type is needed for the fans so I welcome this.

darth5 05-06-2014 01:13 PM

well, I sense this team is in for a significant culture shock.
I know they needed one. This may result in more roster turnover than anticipated. Those clamoring for goals may just get their wish. Let's hope it really turns out as a wise choice. At any rate, speculation can end for this team's head coach.

Predators name Peter Laviolette head coach. Assistants will be Kevin McCarthy, Lane Lambert and Phil Housley.


McCarthy was also his assistant in Philly

AtlantaWhaler 05-06-2014 01:20 PM

Love it. Can't wait to see how the offense reacts. Please get Stastny and/or Callahan and keep MDZ.

Linky to make it official...

As a Flyers fan I'm happy that Lavy gets another shot with a team like Nashville. He's going to come in and add some new things to your team that I think you'll be very happy with. No doubt in my mind you guys are a playoff team next season. Congrats.

What highlights do you see with his system?

He will follow Trotz, follow Trotz wherever Trotz may go
There isn't an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep him away from Trotz

alexmanu 05-06-2014 01:28 PM

Called it from day one, knew we'd get him.

kypredsfan 05-06-2014 01:30 PM

I'm excited about this guy. Finally a change and it looks like a big change system wise.

I Will Son 05-06-2014 01:32 PM

Yeeeeeee

ChesterCopperpot1* 05-06-2014 01:33 PM

Such a stark contrast from Trotz.

Great news!!

bluedevil58 05-06-2014 01:36 PM

Canes fan here: I don't think your team has the offensive capability in its players in order to support the system that Lavi implements. Anyways, be prepared to watch some very exciting and aggressive hockey.

He'll be better with you guys than he was at the end in Philadelphia because of two things... your defense and Rinne. Lavy relies on the defense to make a lot of quick decisions in all three zones. He'll have them pushing the puck as quick as possible up to the forwards, and there will be a lot of defensemen pinching in the offensive zone. Expect to see a lot of two man forechecks, but also expect for him to coach the guys to play in transition. He's not a huge puck possession coach, but he also wants his guys to play off the rush and less off a cycle. You'll create a lot of turnovers (and get a lot of powerplays because of it), but you'll be prone to a lot of them if the defense isn't ready to play every night (then you'll take a lot of penalties as well).

The more I think about it the more I like this move for you guys. You guys have at the best defensive and goaltending personnel that Lavy has ever coached. Lavy's always had a bit of a short shelf life because of the intensity that he brings. He's perfect for a team that's looking to make the step from playoff contender to Stanley Cup contender.

AtlantaWhaler 05-06-2014 01:37 PM

Huh...even made the front page of ESPN. Who knew.

oreilly22 05-06-2014 01:39 PM

Yes! This was my #1 choice! He has been a very successful coach... Stanley Cup win with Hurricanes and loss in Stanley Cup Finals with Philly. I'm excited guys! This was the best option for us in my opinion.
