I know who you're talking about, and yes he does! My fav is Big Cliff in 326- he's not only very knowledgeable about the game, but can really "break it down" during some of the dance songs. I've missed the atmosphere so much already.....THIS STUPID L.O. BETTER NOT LAST LONG!!!!!

Definitely underrated. My favourite bond all-time is Connery so that plays into it. Was also the first of the series I ever saw. First love I guess.

Name: Lisa

Location: Nashville TN, live in Hermitage

Occupation: Work at an animation house. My job specifically is "Secretary Treasurer" combined with HR/Payroll/AP/AR/Insurance, etc. If it doesn't involve animating, I do that. I also feed the cat, who is, incidentally, the model for the Predator in the very first Preds animation.

Preds Fan Since: 1997 We did the roll out of the name "Nashville Predators"

All-Time Favorite Pred: Cale Hulse, duh.

Favorite Current Pred: Hmmm. Shea's gotta prove himself to me, so I'll say Sergei. But I love them all.

Most Memorable Preds Moment: The first playoff game.

Best Trade: No clue. Some trades seem great for awhile then tarnish over time. Remember when we were all so stoked over Marek Zidlicky for Dunham?

Worst Trade: Don't know about worst, but my least favorites were: Eric Belanger before we even got to see him suit up, Tomas Vokoun for anything or anybody, and Hartnell.

Best UFA Signing: Paul Kariya

Worst UFA Signing: No clue

Jerseys Owned: White from second or third year, Blue from about a year later, Mustard Kariya, son owns a Mustard Dunham I wear for reverse the losses mojo, blue third, new blue, Gold Also have a signed Cale Hulse white from 2/25/03 which is probably significant to only 3 people.

Favorite Sport Other than Hockey: Football but it's a distant second.

Favorite Movie: Currently AFTER since we did the special effects (you should go see it!) but other than that, Blazing Saddles.

Favorite Music: I guess I like rock the best but I like a large variety of music. I prefer the peppier songs, stuff that makes you want to dance and sing along, but my favorite singers are probably David Bowie, Ian Anderson and (RIP) the old INXS. Was a HUGE Alice Cooper fan in HS and college. Edit: Can't believe I forgot White Stripes and the Hives. Them too!

Favorite Place To Sit at A Game: Far far away from marching bands.

Name: Keith

Location: Johnson City, TN

Occupation: Sports broadcaster/Full-time student

Preds Fan Since: 1998 (hockey fan since 1996)

All-Time Favorite Pred: Tomas Vokoun

Favorite Current Pred: Roman Josi

Most Memorable Preds Moment: The first "Last TV Timeout Standing Ovation" against St. Louis, April 3, 2008.

Best Trade: 2/16/04 - Acquired Steve Sullivan in exchange for second-round picks in 2004 (Ryan Garlock) and 2005 (Mike Blunden?)

Worst Trade: 7/18/06 - Acquired Josef Vasicek in exchange for Scott Walker. Vasicek produced at roughly 0.3 points per game, was believed at the time to be problematic in the dressing room, and was ultimately traded back to Carolina in February of '07 in the Vitaly Vishnevskiy trade sequence. Walker had an extremely productive season with the Hurricanes, scoring 21 goals and 51 points, following that up with an injury-shortened season in which he scored the series-winning goal in the Eastern Conference Semifinals in overtime of Game 7 against Boston.

Best UFA Signing: Paul Kariya. Completely changed the franchise.

Worst UFA Signing: Matthew Lombardi. Lasted two games.

Jerseys Owned: Nashville original blue with the silver sleeves (Fitzgerald, autographed), Nashville mustard alternate (no name/number), Nashville "Edge" blue (no name/number), Nashville white (Legwand), 08-09 Milwaukee white (Alex Sulzer), 99-00 Pittsburgh alternate (Lemieux), 03-04 Tampa Bay white (no name/number), 1990s Dallas Stars black (no name/number; actually too small for me).

Favorite Sport Other than Hockey: Soccer.

Favorite Movie: Kill Bill Vol. 1

Favorite Music: Depends on my mood. Could be folk, electronica, jazz, metal, or indie stuff. I tend to be very choosy on hip-hop and country, the latter almost exclusively being Dwight Yoakam and his forerunners (Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and the like).

Favorite Place To Sit at A Game: At the base of the corners in the upper bowl; lessens the distortion of depth perception that one gets from sitting behind the nets, and allows the spectator to see the plays develop.

Preds Fan Since: 2003 when I started at Vandy

All-Time Favorite Pred: Erat

Favorite Current Pred: Erat

Most Memorable Preds Moment: Hockey-wise, it's game 5 Chicago loss in 2009/10; will never forget that game ever, especially since the Hawks went on to win it all. Still love Erat regardless. Not exactly hockey-related, but the time I partied with Anders Lindback until 5 AM in Nashville will always be remembered though I wish I had kept a better lid on it in retrospect.

Best Trade: We haven't really made a ton of significant trades period. No idea, maybe picking up AK from the Habs for next to nothing. Post season drama aside, AK did put up some points.

Worst Trade: Forsberg

Preds Fan Since: I've been a fan since they first came into existence, but my parents weren't into hockey (we did go to some Knights and Nighthawkws games, and I got to see my first NHL game in the first Preds season). I guess I became a really big fan around when I was old enough to take myself to games, or go with friends. Right around the same time as the last lockout, actually

All-Time Favorite Pred: Shea Weber

Favorite Current Pred: Shea Weber

Most Memorable Preds Moment: Finally advancing to the second round of the playoffs (leaving this because I agree, though being at the game where we finally eliminated Detroit from the playoffs was pretty awesome



Best Trade: Maybe not the best in terms of what happened after, but my favorite trade was for Peter Forsberg. One of my all-time favorite players finally putting on our sweater, AND our team was stacked? Yes, please. It's a shame he spent his final minutes in Nashville (and almost in the NHL period) in the penalty box.

Worst Trade: Witt

Best UFA Signing: PK

Worst UFA Signing: Lombardi. Had to dump Franson just to get rid of him.

Jerseys Owned: Weber, new home gold

Favorite Sport Other than Hockey: I probably enjoy watching Rugby the most, but I watch more football than any other sport other than hockey.

Favorite Movie: Forrest Gump

Favorite Music: A lot of different stuff. My favorite band is Between the Buried and Me if that counts for anything.

Favorite Place To Sit at A Game: Pretty much anywhere in the 200s is nice. I think the best place I've sat was a suite

just a comment, dont want to turn the thread into something else, but I do not get the hating on the Hartnell/Kimmo deal.. I mean, I understand that the circumstances that kept us from signing them and forced the trade absolutely sucked, but to actually get a first for the rights to two guys who were 100% gone in a week anyway seems to me to be a damn fine deal...

That guy does rule! We should really know his name. I've been in 325A for 3 years and always talk to him but have never asked his name. He gave "what for" to a loud mouth Detroit fan last season about whose barn he was in and how he should act, and he runs folks outta my seats to save me the conflict if I get there late. Props to our Usher!
