OTF Roundtable: Predators 2021 Season Predictions

OTF Roundtable: Predators 2021 Season Predictions

Photo by Jeff Vinnick/ The OTF staff talks about what we expect from the team this year. It’s a weird, weird year, but we’re still getting our season predictions ready. We don’t know how many games the Predators will play, or whether the season will actually run its course, but we’re not trying to predict any of that. Who are your predictions for team scoring leaders? Eamon: I’ll have to go with Filip Forsberg leading the team in goals, Matt Duchene leading in assists, and Roman Josi leading in points. I’m still not convinced that Viktor Arvidsson will ever...

Thursday’s Dump & Chase: It’s Time

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports WAKE UP! The Nashville Predators play hockey today. Nashville Predators News & Notes Lineup rumblings Viktor Arvidsson is not practicing today after getting “nicked up” in practice yesterday, to use John Hynes’ words. This could be an opportunity for Eeli Tolvanen to step into the top six. He is skating with Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen today.— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) January 13, 2021 So it appears there’s a slight chance that Arvidsson misses the season opener tonight.

Blue vs Gold Game 1: Scrimmage Report

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via Team Blue found victory, but what did we learn about the whole team? The biggest thing I can say before getting into what happened in the game is that the following players did not appear: Mikael Granlund, Matt Duchene, Erik Haula, and Rocco Grimaldi. These players are absolutely integral to the Nashville Predators’ lineup, so I wouldn’t get too worked up about lines yet. Aside from the obvious top line of Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen, and Viktor Arvidsson, the only other line that looked like a potential opening day line was that of...

Nashville, the talent is here. Where are you?

Nashville, the talent is here. Where are you?

A recent 3 on 3 tournament showcased top sled hockey talent, many of whom call Nashville home. Imagine if Roman Josi, Filip Forsberg, Matt Duchene, and Viktor Arvidsson hosted a 3 on 3 hockey tournament in Nashville. Fans would rush to Bridgestone Arena to watch Alex Ovechkin, Nathan MacKinnon, Alexis Lafreniere, and Andrei Vasilevskiy compete against the hometown talent. A remarkably similar event played out on the 13th and 14th, as many of the top sled hockey players in the country descended on The Lab in Franklin to compete in a 3 on 3 small-arena tournament. Players from...
