Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via The boys have scattered to their happy places, and the rest of us have a chance to check out some of what’s happening in the rest of the league. Smashville News: Is Ryan Johansen's role on the Nashville Predators changing? | A to Z SportsAlex with some analysis of Ryan Johansen’s usage under John Hynes. Since the Stanley Cup run, I have wondered why Peter Laviolette moved away from using JOFA as the shutdown line. While the Nick Bonino line was also good at this, they didn't seem to be able to generate offense out of defense as...

Nashville Predators vs Anaheim Ducks: Video Preview (and Edmonton Review)

Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via A look at tonight’s matchup with Anaheim, a review of the Edmonton game, and the Smith Kids take another crack at predicting the first goal of the game. I wanted to take a look back at the last game. Considering the John Hynes era is still in its beginning stages, I want to know how much of the “turtling” can be expected to continue. My kids are currently both 0-for-4 in the prediction category, so I hope they get one right soon.

OTF Roundtable: We React to the Preds’ Firings of Peter Laviolette & Kevin McCarthy

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports We bring you the staff’s reactions to the Nashville Predators’ decision to part ways with head coach Peter Laviolette and his associate Kevin McCarthy. Kate: I don’t think they can go on a Blues-esque run unless they get much better goaltending, but I’m tired of seeing players like Ryan Johansen, Kyle Turris, Mikael Granlund, and Matt Duchene get acquired in trades only to see their production drop as they stop making plays. All of these guys are better than they’re playing, and when it’s that widespread I have to think it’s not on each...
