I know we always get called out on any empty seat we have and its frustrating, especially when there is a double standard, but lets not become like other posters on these boards. In fact, I fully believe it is part of what is wrong with hockey, the cannibalistic fans and the fans that still believe that cities aren't worthy of the NHL's presence.
The difference between their empty seats and ours, is that their's are paid for.
Lets worry about making 14k paid attendance and enjoy what might be our last season of NHL hockey in Nashville...
Well, I caved in and got the HDTV package.....and I have to say, it takes hockey to a new level. If anyone is on the fence, it is worth it.
I'm not sure we pull this one out. I like Colorado's team this year, and I expect them to make it past the first round of the playoffs. The addition of Ryan Smyth and Scott Hannan, along with a full season out of Jordan Leopold is going to make them VERY dangerous and much more responsible defensively (which they were not last year). Paul Stastny is just flat out awesome, a tremendous second round selection at the time, a tremendous player already. He was brilliant last night in dallas.
When you have a first line with Smyth-Sakic-Hejduk, a second line of Brunette-Stastny-Hlinka (and man Hlinka has some great hands and Brunette is money besides Stastny), and a third line with snipers like Wolski and Svatos.........your in for a shootout. Lets hope our defensive schemes will work better this year, but with the way Trotz has the offensive players spread out.......I just do not see it tonight.
Is anyone else a little leary of ortmeyer and fiddler being "top six" forwards? This baffles me.
you and anyone with a brain had to know this was coming WHEN Leipold gave Poile NOTHING to work with and the trades occured ... it sucks to see us paying absolutely NO ONE to come in and fill the void that Sullivan has left ... couldn't coerce/convince Hornqvist to stay over here at least until December ... btw irisheyes ... good job on the GDT again
here is the image i have for the preds home sweaters. the problem is i got it from nhl.com/preds and the away ones are much smaller. you can view the away ones in a larger size but only under flash(i.e. can't save picture). so does anyone out there know of a site that has the new styles( of the same size). or conversely know if a way to save a flash image?
