I'm very frustrated this was my last season to be in Nashville, and we only got half of it because of the lockout, then we sucked hardcore. I'm off to South Bend next fall to go to Notre Dame, and it may be awhile before I can really go to a lot of games again - if I ever can. Bad timing for me, but hey, Center Ice is a wonderful thing.

Didn't take long to derail this thread Good to see some ND fans!

I am beside myself with excitement. Through a scholarship program up there, I get to go anywhere - literally anywhere - I want for four summers to do reserach/internships/service/etc., but everything that the "normal" ND student gets to do. I can't wait for the next chapter to get started.

Man, makes the Preds failure seem small

It is 3 hours to Milwaukee, half that time to Chicago. You can take a train to Chicago and AmTrak runs 7 trains a day back and forth between Chicago Union Station and downtown Milwaukee. Good luck at ND!

Nashville was not as good as I had expected. Must be either Suter, Ward or Tootoo's fault!

This. Sometimes I think we all need to take a step back from the abyss and
remember this is a game we're getting all torque'd up about. The sun still rises after every Preds win or loss, and real life goes on.

edit: I forgot my vent. Why couldn't we have sucked since inception, so we could have Crosby, Malkin, Toewes and Kane all on our team?? ARRRGHHH!!!!

Stop getting points! You sucked too hard this year to blow our top 3 draft chances now!

Tough year, but we've been pretty spoiled fans by the Preds' lengthy playoff streak. I'm surprisingly okay with this season; lots of youth and a ton of injuries. Being a Bills fans helps me keep perspective. Leafs on a 9 year playoff drought and their fans are on loudly sitting on the ledge; Bills are on a 13 year and counting playoff drought.

Haven't heard yet. I'm sure I'll know in a month or two.

I was planning on grabbing a few hockey friends (or maybe a cute girl) and heading over to Chitown whenever the Preds play at the United Center, but I hadn't even thought about the Ads. That would be an awesome long-weekend type thing. Thanks for mentioning it!

The last time we weren't in playoff contention was 2003, my senior year in high school, so I know how you feel.

Good news is we got better after that and I spent tons of time during the playoffs every year driving back and forth to make sure I didn't miss a home playoff game (including having to drive back to Knoxville after losing in double OT to the Sharks so I could make class the next day...awful).

At least you're going someplace that knows what hockey is. Before I went to UT, I spent a semester in Clemson and not only did the cable service not offer Center Ice, but absolutely zero bars anywhere carried it. It was a hockey wasteland. Thank goodness I transferred.

Anyway, if my pattern holds for you, we'll be getting a lot better shortly!
