Well, you're welcome here. I know it's tough...not only are you losing your team, you're losing your community. It was the thing I feared most when the Preds dealt with all that mess.

Since the sale went through I haven't stepped onto the Thrashers' board, but couldn't help but take a peek today. It's actually pretty disgusting. They are getting our hockey team, is that not enough? Do they really need to gloat too?

At least it's honest though. All the hollow apologies coming from fans who were "extremely excited" the Thrashers were moving to Winnipeg were the worst.

Yeah...It's even crossed my mind to go ahead and ask the admins to go ahead and step in on the modding, per agreement by BTN and Shameus...

I really thought I was going to try to follow the team, but I just don't see that happening wit how obnoxious the fans have become.

I really thought in the beginning that there's no way I could turn my back on these guys since I've been through so much as a fan with them. Now I find myself really not giving a damn....Especially with Winnipeg's dismissal of Dudley. I understand TNSE wants to put their stamp on the team, but I think 80% of NHL fans would agree that TNSE not keeping Dudley is just stupid. Especially this close to the draft.

I'm over it. Go Preds!

same as kevin...i want little and enstrom to leave so i don't have to feel so attached. never really got as in love with kane and byfuglien so oh well.

the fans acting like they know as much as the atlanta fans, and the ridiculous things they want to do with the team. acting like byfugien and kane are demi-gods and leaving enstrom and little out to dry. kinda proof they don't know what they're talking about.

please draft me

Shouldn't you photoshop your picture to read Nashville instead of Miami?

Sucks to see how some of the fans have become in the last few days.

Y'all remember the Disney Mighty Ducks cartoon, where everyone played hockey and they skated everywhere? That's kinda what they're trying to portray Winnipeg is like...

Personally, I don't feel like Athletes should be treated like gods. They're adults who get paid to play a game. It's not like they're doing something every day vital to survival.

For the ATL fans I have been chatting with a few of the sales staff of the Preds, they are awesome. Two I know are Curry and Dan. Here are their contacts.

615-770-2115 or dschaefer@nashvillepredators.com

Everybody, including the players are excited right now, and truthfully, who can blame them? This is still the Atlanta "Five Game Losing Streak" Thrashers. Let's see how things are for the players about February when it's 20 below, they're at the bottom of the divison and there's a blog called "What I Found in Evander Kane's Trash Can this Morning"

Okay, now I'm 5000% certain I don't want anything to do with Winnipeg. Their fans are way too serious about a frickin game. I just love the thought of when I see people have responded to a thread I post in, going in with the thought of "This is where I find out how dumb I aM!"

If you get drafted by another team, just defect to us.

Hey guys, just wanted to thank all of you for putting your hand out in support as we lost our team for no reason. I've always loved the South and Southerners in general... Atlanta has been my home for as long as I've been alive.

If we have to lose our team (which I will truthfully never get over) it makes me feel good to know that at least you guys and Raleigh still have yours. I want to see hockey grow and grow and grow until everyone knows how great it is to watch and play.

Thanks again for thinking of us and just keep being yourselves, I'll see you guys when the Thrashjets roll into town.

It's good to see that some of the other Thrashers fans are feeling the same way as I do about the Winnipeggers taking over the boards. I used to frequent the official boards a lot more and mostly lurked over here but I've been here a lot more recently because the quality of hockey talk is MUCH better over here. But now on both boards the Winnipeggers are taking control and it's sickening to me. I realize its going to happen but I wish that they would just wait until the forum changes names or at least until the BOG vote is final.

All I know is, I'm already excited about starting to support the Preds and I'm seriously considering going ahead and making a call about tickets for opening night. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do (much like others have said) but I assumed I might kinda follow the boys up to Winnipeg but now I just don't feel like I can do it. It's gonna suck not to watch Enstrom or Buff. Or to see Kane mature into the great power forward that I know he is going to be. I just feel like I don't know that I can hang on with the Winnipeggers and start reading the **** they are writing about getting a team and all the ridiculous posts that are coming along with it.

Sorry for the rant.

Where can a guy get a nice Preds hat? I'm already getting sick of having 10 conversations a day about "why the Thrashers left" on the street with random people who have no idea or even care why. I wear a hat almost every day and I need a new one.

Yeahhhhhh probably not...haha

I've kinda got my eye on one of those Admiral hats. Those things are slick. Love the logo. It's so cartoonish and weird.

Sweetness! Back to my old stomping ground. Very glad to be on board.

It will be strange to be part of an organization that actually cares about its fans, but I think that transition will be might easy!
And the occasionaly road trip is a must (haven't had a chicken philly from Dalton's in so long, going through withdrawls).

Promise to give as much as I get. Not a southerner by birth, but I've learned the ways of southern sarcasm well (nothing more biting since it takes them so long to actually realize what's hit them).

Let's do this!

This avy should work, unless you guys and gals want to gift me with another.

After all this, it really is good to know there are others ready and willing to take us orphaned fans in.
I shan't disappoint.

And just FYI, a good bottle of scotch will work as a signing bonus. Gotta play to my strengths

FYI: There's a "Nashville Predators: Franchise Analysis" Thread made spefically for catching new fans up with the state of the Preds. Feel free to read up on where we stand.
