Great work man!

I imagined that took you a minute to put together.

I knew Hornqvist had a good preseason but damn. He probably played his way into the starting lineup opening day.Impressive stats from him.

Looks good. Several players we hoped would step it up and show something during training and the preseason games have done just that.

Bring on the regular season!!!

I know. I'm wondering how this team will look when Franson isn't getting any minutes.

Thank you! Thank you! Glad to know I still serve a purpose in this world.

As for the lines coming out of camp...

Sully-Arnott-Dumont (SAD)
Santorelli-Legwand-Erat (SELl or LESs pending on how the line is playing)
Jones-Goc-Hornqvist (GHiJ or the "Please Colin get good soon!" line)
Smithson-Guite-Tootoo (Yeah......We got some spare parts and a welding torch...)
Grant

Weber-Suter (Can they play 40 minutes a game every night?)
Hamhuis-Laakso (Laakso has been looking good and Hamhuis is on the last year of a deal......Can they play 20 minutes a game?)
Klein-Sulzer (Um......See 4th line)
Bouillon (His last name sounds like a small brick of gold and he's built like an Abrahms. If his nickname isn't "Fort Knox" by the end of the season I will be highly disapointed in the fanbase of the Nashville Predators.)

Ellis (Dan Ellis 2: Back for vengance!)
Rinne (I thought Rinne's size would make him slump proof? Is it because he's too slow?)

Comming soon:

Colin Wilson: Hopefully as the 3rd line center
Cal O'Reilly: Hopefully he found a way to pry his head out of his ass
Jon Blum: Get a frequent flyer mile account with Southwest
Cody Franson: Player to be named later in a trade.....

Like I said before, good work man I just have to make sure you know you aren't perfect ALL the time ... just most of the time.

Where's that most important stat? Player-days lost to groin strains...

What's up with Wilson anyway? It was 9 or 10 days ago he was held out because of a "tweak" to his groin. Is he skating yet? If not, that sure is one heck of a tweak.


(Snip quote...)#######
Sully-Arnott-Dumont (SAD)
Santorelli-Legwand-Erat (SELl or LESs pending on how the line is playing)
Jones-Goc-Hornqvist (GHiJ or the "Please Colin get good soon!" line)
Smithson-Guite-Tootoo (Yeah......We spare parts and a welding torch...)
Grant
#######


This forward lineup is quite depressing compared to what I hoped for. I hate to put the huge weight on a rookie, but I think we're a playoff team if Wilson plays well most of the year, and out if he doesn't. The above lineup should be better in scoring than last years. But I just look at our division and think it's not enough. Unless of course we get awesome goaltending, like Rinne last year. And get the breaks and win a ton of one goal games. Or else Legwand and Erat have massive years. And Weber and Sutur do as well or better in scoring. I think Hornqvist/Ward and Jones can score a bit. But not enough with Goc as the center.

I know it's a disappointment to see Goc in instead of Wilson or even O'Reilly, but I think lines are looking better than last years. The first two lines really aren't that bad, and I think Hornqvist and Jones have improved from last year. Rookies will have to play a pretty big role this year though.

And I don't think the Preds are going to get much help with the waivers. Hell, the only name that rose eyebrows was Adam Hall.

Yeah, I'm optimistic enough to think we could do it. We could even be a threat in the playoffs if everything is clicking, for once, at the right time. But it takes a lot of optimism to believe that the SAD line won't lose very many games to injury, and that none of those aging players slip in performance. And while I know the Leggy line could have a really big year, that also is optimistic.

Without Wilson and the free agent pickup, we have no scoring depth. And I'm not knocking Goc. He'll be an ok placeholder and fair two way player.

What is interesting is if both O'Reilly and Wilson were to show up. A line of Jones and Hornqvist can be fueled with either one of these guys' playmaking ability. Let's play the what if game. What if O'Reilly heals his cranial rectal inversion, Wilson shows he's Colin ****ing Wilson and Ward comes back healthy? This could ALL happen in one month's time. Note, Belak will be coming back too. Jones or Hornqvist on the 4th line anyone?

I was excited that I'd see Wilson and O'Reilly both make the club. With Wilson getting hurt, that third line center spot was sitting there on a silver platter for O'Reilly to grab. But it sounds like he dropped it.

At least it's good that the more recent reports, and a bit in the games, are that he's showing more stuff. And Wilson already has showed he's Colin ####ing Wilson in my opinion, despite weak competition. If it was me, and he was healthy, he'd start the year with the big club and work his way onto the third line in a couple weeks. And we wouldn't dress all three of Tootoo, Belak, and Bouillon, because how much grit do we need?

A couple of bright spots have been Santorelli (that line could be good...) and Spaling. But we don't need a bunch of medium level guys, we need somebody to make a big step up. Way up. Maybe that will be Santo, Wilson, or O'Reilly. If O'Reilly goes down, and our third line isn't scoring, I won't be surprised to see Eaves win the call up either. It's possible anyway.

SAD
ELS

Those are set in stone.

In a month, I think we will see:

Jones O'Reilly/Goc Ward
Hornqvist Smithson Tootoo
Belak

what I think we will get right now:

Jones Goc Hornqvist
Smithson Guite Tootoo
Belak

I'd be shocked if Wilson wasn't the 3rd line center in a month.

So who is starting in goal? Rinne or Ellis? Or is it still uncertain?

After the year Rinne had, it's hard not to have him as #1. His pre-season stats are a bit scary though...

Agreed. I think Trotz will give Rinne a few early looks to make sure the preseason wasnt just a fluke, but Ellis has his job back and Rinne will really have to out play Dan to even think about getting it back.

Speaking of numbers I was just looking at the size of this team on yahoo sports.

Getting rid of Fiddler, Nichol, etc and adding guys like Sulzer, Jones, Wilson, Laakso makes this one of the largest teams we've iced.

Is Shea Weber really 230 lbs now?

Also, still disagree on Ellis and Rinne. I'm not convinced that Ellis' rebound control will last.

That's what the Website says.

Average forward: 6'1", 204 lbs.
Average defender: 6'2", 207 lbs.

I would guess that's about on par with the league average. We could still use another big forward in the top six, but it's tough to call that an immediate need.
