The Summer of Gold

It’s a completely different day and age for hockey in Nashville. Some may argue changing the logo and jersey was the Summer of Gold, but to me this offseason takes that title. This Summer of Gold has seen a long overdue change at Head Coach, the Predators making the rare Draft Day big trade, more recently a day of signing centers, the TV and Radio broadcast teams mixed up (more...

Predators’ Shea Weber Puts Hole In Boards With Powerful Slap Shot (Video)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber’s slap shot is one of the most powerful in the NHL. The last time we saw him unleash his shot during a skills challenge was at the 2012 NHL All-Star Skills Competition, where he finished second to Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara in the Hardest Shot portion of the event with a 106 mph blast. During a skate with teammates on Thursday, Weber...

Shea Weber’s Slap Shot Is Literally Destroying Boards Now

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber has one of the hardest slap shots in the entire NHL.

Weber, who has previously hit 106...

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber is known for having a rocket of a slap shot, though not as fast as Zdeno Chara’s, and these photos from his teammate Seth Jones show just how hard it is. Weber […] The post Predators Defenseman Shea Weber Puts Hole In Boards With Slap Shot...

Predators got value in James Neal trade

Normally when a team trades for a big-name player, it takes on extra salary. It's the price you pay for adding an elite athlete. Strangely, when the Predators traded for forward James Neal from Pittsburgh, it proved a salary dump to some degree. Former forward Nick Spaling will make $2.2 million next season. Patric Hornqvist, also sent to the Pens for Neal, will make $4.25...

Nashville is expecting “real good things” from Seth Jones

Some rookies fear the dreaded sophomore slump. That’s not quite the case for Seth Jones. Joining the Nashville Predators as the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, Jones performed fairly well in 2013-14, but was lost in the shuffle behind other rookies around the league such as Colorado forward Nathan MacKinnon. What’s expected of the defenseman heading into 2014-15?...

It Could Be An Exciting Year Fro The Nashville Predators

from John Manasso at NHL.com, For the first time in the Predators' 16-year history, they have a new coach, and to an extent a new philosophy.

The only holdover on the coaching staff...
