Here's to anticipation
 
I have lived in Nashville for most of my life and have always been a huge hockey fan, but now I go to school at UK, sad huh, and find myself missing the Preds more and more every day. This is the most I've ever been excited before the season opener and I'm not even in Nashville anymore. I'm a long time visitor to hockey's future, couple times a day, but first time poster. I consider myself a very educated fan, not only on the predators, but every team as I have been following the game for quite some time. I played in high school back in Nashville and as weird as it may sound alot of what I know comes from owning the EA Sports NHL series since '97 :D . (Yeah I'm one of those stats freaks.) I hope that I can contribute to these boards and can't wait to get started. GO PREDS!!!

After what I saw Saturday night, I am inclined to agree.

Give me 82 games of that energy and I'll end the regular season a very happy hockey fan, regardless of our record.

Give me 82 games of that skill level, and I'm likely to end the regular season needing a towel.

Give me 82 games of that energy and we'll all be needing to scrounge up cash for playoff tickets.

I too am VERY excited about this team. Everything is starting to fall in place for the team. The way I see it:

During our run last year after the all-star break we were the best team in hockey up until some injuries at the end of the year hurt us. Guys that team was a few points from the last spot at that time. Now, take out some deadweights (Gilchrist, Houlder, Hulse), add some more skilled players, factor in a very competitive training camp, where only the best players will be on the opening night roster, a better stocked farm club, and a another year's experience for some of the other players (Hartnell, Arkhipov) and you have alot of potential.

A few moves along the way have suprised me (Skrastins, Lasak), but overall I'm very happy with how this team has come along.
