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...

Nashville Predators 2021 Previews: The Wingers

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via The offense is, once again, the Preds’ big question. We’re less than 48 hours away from the start of the NHL season, and while the roster has been trimmed down for practice Tuesday morning, the outlook for the Nashville Predators’ forward group is still very much in the air. As Kate said earlier today in her center previews, we are going to assume Ryan Johansen, Matt Duchene, and Colton Sissons will primarily play center this season and not include them here. The remainder of the forwards can be separated into several...

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...

2019-20 Predators Player Report Cards: Matt Duchene

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ David Poile finally landed his white whale, with less harpooning—so how did it go? Author’s note: I’m going to be honest with you all for a moment: this took way too long to do. I was the one who setup the sheet and schedule for report cards, and I’m way past that. But in the case of grading the season of the organization’s most sought-after player for many years, I wasn’t satisfied with either of the two previous drafts I had written. Grading Matt Duchene and breaking down his season needed more, so here’s the more I came up...

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...
