I'll pass. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he didn't know Petrell was there, but still. Why even make a line change in the first place is my question when it's a 1-on-1 going the other way.

low risk high reward move, Predator fans have been saying he's playing well, the effort is there but that team can't score for ****

Kostitsyn - Loki - Kovy

I can't believe they didn't mention him coming off the ice in that situation on the broadcast.

i dont really think nashville is in a position to be trading skilled forwards, considering they have trouble scoring just like NJ

They did on the Preds' feed. I was watching this game. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him do that.

Not to mention they're claiming everyone under the sun to try to find offense (Butler and Boychuk). They're only sitting Kostitsyn because of the super brain cramp.

There is still a lot of time to make trades. I wouldn't count anyone out now no matter who said it.

Nashville is really hurting. Rinne has 5 shutouts this season, but has been getting pulled every other game lately. Combine that with lack of scoring.

This is how I find players I think would be good fits here:
1) go to NHL.com
2) go to "stats"
3) go to "players"
4) go to "sort by points"
5) pick a guy who has put up a lot of point = trade for now

Good system no?

Not necessarily. There's always some sort of anomaly. For example James Reimer's save percentage, and Mark Fraser's +16.

Eliott Freidman said what a lot of us have been talking about.

The market is so small right now. A dozen or so teams looking at a group fo 6-10 guys. And it's not a very high end group. Headlined by guys like Iginla and Morrow. And no one wants to take on existing albatross contracts not really knowing how the UFA landscape is going to go this summer.

Will be interesting to see if the market loosens up a little starting Wednesday at the GM meetings.

Have to think Nashville realizes how valuable he is though, with their scoring issues lately.

Ya, they definitely know they need him. He won't be moved unless it's an offer they just can't refuse.

@TSNBobMcKenzie Who hasn't made a bad line change in their career?You play enough hockey it's bound to happen. Gotta smile at the coverage.


One terrible, awful, stupid, line change won't turn a player into a team cancer. SK's been a good player, a reliable 2 way forward for years in Nashville. And we're complaining about our situation but honestly the Preds are in a real mess. Winning for them is only about Rinne able or not to put the team on his back, every day. This helplessness may lead to frustration.

But ihe's another playmaker anyway, this guy just never want to shot the puck.

Nashville isn't benching Kostitsyn because they want to get rid of him. They're benching him to tell them team that if you don't want to play hard, you won't play. They're holding players accountable for their mistakes.

Yeah, I don`t think he knew about Pettrell. One way or the other, I`d never go for a change after I lost a puck battle knowing the player who outplayed me has a 1-on-1 situation. Not even if my teammate back there was Lidstrom.

And no offense to Poni, but we should have gone after Wheeler.

I'd bring in Boyle if we get rid of Zidlicky in the same deal.

And I know it`s too late to cry over a spilt milk, but speaking of trades/signings we didn`t make.



Name a forward who would be able to pull that off. Aside from Crosby and Kopitar.

I love him to death and I`m well aware of his passing ability, but no he wouldn`t. That`s a stretch pass only the likes of Forsberg are able to make. Any top Dman could put that in his highlight reel compilation. Incredible play.

I`ve said this many times, but they`d make a good trading partner... we could use one of their young forwards.
