Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: When You Switch to Hynes, but You’re Out of the (Playoff) Huntz

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports ...and you can’t ketchup. Let’s lead off with a fine tweet from last night: WHY ARENT YOU PLAYING BETTER WITH WATSON AND JARNKROK https://t.co/dvkfXvpfrT— Hynes’lines (@PredsandStuff) January 28, 2020 Playing your top center with the worst overall and defensive player on the wing against Auston Matthews and John Tavares seems like a great idea, in my opinion.

From Untouchable to Trade Bait: Where the Predators rank ahead of the trade deadline

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via We’ve got 6 tiers for trade likeliness We’ve passed the halfway point in the ‘19-’20 NHL season and are careening toward February’s trade deadline at full speed. For what was expected of them before the season began, the Nashville Predators have had an undeniably disappointing season thus far. The Preds are currently on the outside of the playoff picture looking in — six points out of a Wild Card spot. However, General Manager David Poile made moves to ensure this careening, disappointing season doesn’t become a runaway train headed toward...

Nashville Predators 2, Toronto Maple Leafs 5: Hitting Snooze

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via The Predators really, really, really needed to win this game. I have this game down as a must-win game. The Nashville Predators are dangerously close to being out of contention for a playoff spot. A big win against the Toronto Maple Leafs would go a long way towards building the momentum (and the points) needed to come thundering back. However, a loss tonight means the Predators move even closer to a position in which they unload players for a return on future assets. What Happened? Very nice tribute to Kobe Bryant before the anthems. Colin Blackwell...

You’re going to be seeing the inside of an airplane after a game a lot more than the outside. | Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via Nashville enters the All-Star break with the fewest games played, but the distribution of their remaining games may be cause for concern. The Nashville Predators played their last pre-All Star break game against the Buffalo Sabres last Saturday, January 18th and resume play today. The combination of the All-Star break plus the annual bye week means that Nashville’s 47 games played is the fewest in the...

Nashville Predators vs Toronto Maple Leafs Preview: Back Again

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via Break is over, boys. Time to kick it into high gear. Do you feel refreshed? Rejuvenated? Renewed? — I hope you do, but more than likely you don’t. You probably didn’t get a nearly week-long break where you jet set to a fabulous mini-vacation. However, most of the Nashville Predators did get that much deserved vacation (minus Roman Josi who was busy being an All-Star in St. Louis). Here’s hoping they feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed, because now is when it gets serious. The Toronto Maple Leafs are headed south to meet the...

Photo by Darcy Finley/NHLI via Seller? Buyer? Do nothing? In the spirit of Sportsnet’s recent pieces about trade deadline options for each Canadian NHL club, I’m throwing together three options for Nashville as February 24th creeps closer. None of these scenarios are genius, fresh, or otherwise mind-blowing. Some of these options have been suggested elsewhere, as Nashville’s subpar play has been the subject of much scrutiny. Conversation will continue about how the Predators plan to proceed with their underwhelming season. Of course, these trade options most certainly depend on...
