Looking Back and Moving Forward: #18 James Neal

The sign times were changing in Nashville. Once Peter Laviolette was hired, the system was going to be tweaked for a more offensive flair. The first step to this organizational turning point came on the day of the 2014 NHL draft when David Poile traded away the net front presence  of Patric Hornqvist and utility man Nick Spaling for the sniper James Neal.   This team was serious...

Predators draft four centers, seven overall at 2015 NHL Entry Draft

With the speculation abound that the Predators could try and move back into the first round of the draft, nothing ever seemed to come of it. Neither was the case for Nashville to make any sort of splash on the trade market, either. All in all, it was a very quiet and laid back weekend for the Preds. A bit different from last year when Nashville made plenty of noise, trading for forward...

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #15 Craig Smith

A prototypical top six forward who continues to be a model of consistency. With so many new storylines coming out of the bounce back year for the team, one remained the same. Craig Smith puts the puck in the net on a regular basis.   An outstanding freshman year in 2011-2012 did see a regression the following season, but the last two have been excellent. Smith notched 24 goals in...

Looking Back and Moving Forward: #14 Mattias Ekholm

He’s not the first name that comes up when describing the Nashville defense core, but Ekholm has taken strides to be a top player at his position. A consistent presence on the left side of the second defensive pair this past year allowed him to perform at a new level. The 25 year old Swede has put all the physical attributes together to round a complete game on both sides of the...
