Today is not just a game day for the Nashville Predators,It's our anniversary,15 years ago the Nashville Predators played their first regular season game in the NHL 

 

 

 

 

The Predators first took the ice on October 10, 1998, where they lost 1-0 at home to the Florida Panthers. It was the only sold out game of the Predators' first five bouts in Nashville.[6] Three nights later, on October 13, they defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 3–2 for their first win.

Too bad they didn't win that first one.  I can't believe it's been that long.  I feel old.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

I envy Preds fans - they got to be there at the inception of their team.  What wouldn't I give to see the Wings starting out?  Man, those were the days -  when men were men and refs nonexistent.  Bettman too!


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Bernier is off to a great start if he can keep this up, the Leafs might have to make him their new number 1. Surely a tough break for Reimer, who I think is a very good goalie. the Predators should try to load up on young offensive talent through the draft, getting Reinhart and McDavid might be exactly what the doctor ordered. In all seriousness I don't think they are going to be the worst 5 teams in the league but this team needs to get it together, otherwise they might look at another non playoff season. Seeing the very first game of a franchise must have been something special, boy oh boy I would give a lot to go back in time and see the first DetroitRedWings game ever played.

Oh, I thought you were older than... never mind.

I'd love to have seen Sawchuck in action.  If I could even go back that far, I'd be happy.
