I thought Hannan was awful again. I'd love to see him watch a game and let Blum play.

Part of our breakout problems are because Gill and Hannan are our left defensemen.

Gill has always been slow, but I think it's worse than ever. I think his inertia during the lockout has caused him to loose yet another step. He's getting blown by a couple of times a day, and not even his reach is helping.

Honestly, neither of our deadline-deal-turned-resignings (Gill, Gaustad) are looking particularly great right now.

I agree. The bottom 4 players on the team right now are Hannan, Clune, Gill and Gaustad.

Agree on time to let Blum play. Just not sure who to sit. Hannan, I suppose.

Weird if he gets scratched right after getting bumped up with Weber, but nothing is ordinary about this season.

Josi is amazing by the way. He has not had even something approaching a bad game from what I have seen (I missed only the ANA one). He carries the puck extremely well and he is probably the best player on our team at entering the zone without a dump and chase right now. He's an RFA at the end of the season; open the pocketbooks and sign an overpriced post-ELC contract to keep him here for the next 3-4 years. For once, let's avoid salary arbitration.

I agree on Josi, and the Josi Klein pairing worked well last night. We're just one defenseman short of having a great top 4.

No chance of arbitration following the ELC.

Subban just got 2 years at 2.8mil. Josi shouldn't be too hard to sign.

Agree, which is why I didn't understand breaking up Josi and Weber. Sure, it strengthen's the second pairing, but makes the first significantly weaker.

We badly need someone to play with Klein.

sloppy sloppy sloppy sloppy sloppy sloppy game. But it was a win and thats all that matters. Hannan was terrible last game, 6 pims in like 14 minutes of ice time... Im definitely in favor of giving blum and chance. Blum could add some much needed mobility and transition on the ice for us.

In the last half of the second, and the third we looked much better.

Upon reflection, I think we might have started the season thinking, "Hey, we're the Predators. What we do is play good defense, lean on our goalie and wait for the good chances to come." As a result, we were too passive offensively and the chances didn't come.

Worse, we were too passive defensively, creating big gatherings in front of the net, which really give Pekka trouble. Like any goalie, he's better when he has some open space and can see what's coming. I think trying to attack on offense is obviously better offensively, and Rinne is the kind of goalie that can bail you out if you give up an odd-man rush by trying to be too aggressive. Obviously there's a balance, but I think this team needs to focus more on attacking and taking chances than trying to be safe and win 1-0.

The biggest thing we miss with Suter right now is his transition game. Josi, though, is incredible.

Still can't get over Bourque's shootout goal- what a beauty. I certainly thought it was over when we fell behind in the SO, but Bourque saved our behinds...

I somewhat get the breakup of Josi and Weber. Josi is a more mobile defenceman compared to Suter. He really likes to jump in the play. Because of this I think Weber is forced to play a more stay at home role, which is a waste of his talents.

So instead of finding a puck mover to play with Klein, I wouldn't mind getting a stay at home guy (one better than Hannan) with a good first pass to play with Weber.

Bump Hannan down to the bottom pairing and scratch Gill.

Things we miss withour Suter????......... well the nmber one thing that comes to mind is WEBER. This is an issue i don'think hes had a slapper or onetimer within 6ft of the net this year, maybe he has but sure not like the previous years. Really not sore at Suter for moving on but the impact between webers ears needs to end. As the top paid defenseman in history goes a great degree of playing like an eliete player especially while wearing the C.

This win belongs to Pekka time to face the toughest team in the league tomorrow. Not many holes in the Sharks. Just get out of the tank without being totally embarrased should be the goal.

It's crazy but true. Our defense hasn't been as shutdown, and the lack of weber/Suter on the same line is noticeable in the forwards having to be more responsible defensively. But the transition game is really lacking. Suter was the best puck mover on the team

Oulala Kostitsyn's shootout goal was so nasty, same with Bourque's. He made Quick look like Timmy T out there.
