Barry Melrose just explained it for everyone paying attention...apologies because this is paraphrased-
"I said Nashville was the top team in the NHL last night, and they just picked up one of my favorite all time NHL players, Peter Forsberg..."
Imagine the Titans picked up Jerry Rice in his prime about halfway through this past years season, and then you can begin to imagine what Forsberg will be able to bring to the table with the Predators. All of the pieces are in place, the games just need to be played out.
We were toasting to Forsberg tonight and thanking Stevie Sullivan for being the guy who was the first big time NHL player not from Nashville who really believed in what these Nashville Predators are capable of. The Preds management went all in when they chased Sullivan, and he's been one of the most incredible hockey players -hell one of the best ice skaters-I've ever seen. Since then the Predators mystique has been building, and it's only a matter of time before the rest of the world gets to see what's been brewing at the GEC for the last few years..
I can't wait to see this team get unleashed in the playoffs. It's going to be something special..
