Seriously...

Josi - Subban
Ekholm - Ellis
Bitetto - Who cares

That's an insanely good top four.

Forward corps still has Forsberg, Johansen, Neal, among others. Also the final season of Ribeiro in Nashville (hopefully also in hockey) so that's a bonus.

Preds asst. coach Phil Housley turned Josi, Ekholm and Ellis into studs. PK is going to win his second Norris here.

PK will end up with close to 80 points here and have more than Karlson.

:bandwagon:

My new team.

Quote:
The problem with the Preds was their starting lineup, the one they went to before they went "small." The weak link was Weber.

While the B-Unit had the right personnel to realize Laviolette’s exciting vision for how hockey should be played, Roman Josi, Ryan Johansen, and Filip Forsberg suffered from Weber’s misadventures at getting the puck out of Nashville’s end. The first step to having an exciting offense is ... being on offense. Weber played defense entirely to prevent the other team from scoring (which he did well), not to quickly convert defense into offense. This strategy hurts at both ends, however, as prolonged shifts in the defensive zone—even well-defended ones—eventually lead to more goals against and fewer opportunities to score.

That’s why trading for P.K. Subban so dramatically transforms the Preds. First, he makes the team much better. I don’t want to belabor the point, but the statistics are pretty cut-and-dry on his being an upgrade over Weber. Secondly, Subban’s ability to rush the puck and play up in the offensive zone allows the Preds to consistently play the style they had employed for only a third of their games.

One Weber for another. Yannick Weber replaces Shea Weber. It would be hilarious if he wore number 6.

PK still sad

PK Subban quote to @alex_prewitt: "Ppl said it was a hockey trade. I think it’s the furthest from that. I think it was a personality trade.”


Hope it fuels him rather than distract.

If the Habs and Preds met in the finals I'm cheering for the Preds.

Fuck Montreal.

I think PK will be fine. I fear it'll be Rinne who fucks this all up.

First goal of the Preds season: PK slapper from the point on the power play. This season is going to be fun.

Subban out at least 2-3 weeks with a herniated disc. Could be out much longer.

Huge blow for the Preds.

Oh God...there are few things I've experienced that hurt worse than a herniated disc. Hope he heals up and fast.

Still not sure why the Preds did not just absolutely destroy the NHL this year. They should have.

Largely kept Toews off the scoresheet in round one, then put up 3 points in game one against the Blues.

PK is ready for his moment.

Good part that I meant to include in my idea, which is in the Playoff thread. Spoiler, my idea involves poo.
