Since they've drafted many players from my home WHL team (Kamloops Blazers) I tend to take quite an interest in them. Scottie Upshall, Paul Brown, Josh Morrow are all recent draft picks by the Predators.

I don't really care for this team. They have done nothing great. I bet that most of us here can barely name 10 players from this team, or know little about the players.

I can name their drafted players. They have by far the best prospects in the league. Go ahead and argue, I'm up for showing the facts.

It's only a matter of time, they're an up and coming team. Watch out!

Hahahaha....I was going to put something in just so there would be a thread started in the Nashville slot (you beat me to it)...but I couldn't think of a damned thing to say other than, "they have the ugliest 3rd jerseys in the League"

Haha, ya those sweaters must be drenched in mustard with a logo stuck on it. But, I must say, it's more creative than Colorado's. :p

this is an awful team, going nowhere awfully quick. the west is way way too deep for this franchise to pose any kind of threat any time soon.
I think they are slowly developing.....very very slowly.

I like Vokoun..

This guy is a underrated, good goalie.

Canucks were going to trade for him a year ago, but it fell through. If he were on the Canucks..they would go far.

If he was on the Avs, look out. I'd take him over Absechier any day He is totally underrated.

I agree with Vokoun. The guy faces 40-shots per game and gives his team a chance to win the game. Unfortunetly their offense is unable to capitalize forcing Vokoun to stand on his head for 60 minutes.

Yup Vokoun is very underated. He took over when Dunham (who is also underated), left to NYR, and everyone thought that he couldn't handle it. But he does and he wokrs very hard.

I hate Nashville even though I go to there games. But I do that either because of good seats or a team I like plays them.

Well despite that comment right above this, I think the Nashville organization is doing great. They have excellent fan support and have gotten the whole town of nashville excited about hockey.. but they still lost to the wings! :p
