My opinion on today's signings are positive.
Today, the Predators got back to their bread and butter. We are back to that hard/gritty game that we had gotten away from the past two seasons. We went for it the 2011-2012 to really impress Suter & Weber, and we ultimately failed. We went for forwards that year, and got away from our grittiness and at the end of it, got put out in 5 games that was playing our style of hockey. We started losing our identity then, and just now regained it. Barry Trotz knows how to coach teams like this. He hasn't had a team like this since the 2010-2011 season, and now he can get back to his forte. We still may not be able to score (which is still a problem) but we are going to be one of the hardest teams to play against in the NHL this upcoming season. This is a team that Trotz can mold and really get a lot out of. We have some of our offense coming around (Willy, Forsberg, Beck, Stalberg), with one of the hardest bottom 6's to play against. Not to mention, one of the best defenses in the whole league, with arguably the best goalie in the world.
Giving Trotz a whole training camp to fix and mold this team will be just what we need. We have balance, and we sure as heck are a better team today, than we were yesterday. We are back to being the Predators we all know & love.
P.S.: Everyone complaining about who Poile signed, are the exact same people that would have been complaining if he wouldn't had signed anyone. This team hasn't even taken the ice yet. Chill out, guys.
