Thursday's Dump & Chase: Still Waiting :(

31

Waiting for the long holiday weekend. Waiting for training camp. Waiting for the season. Just waiting.

Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Rookies Report in 16 Days!

32

Thursday, September 11th is the day. And two days later, there will be two games at the brand new Ford Ice Center. Hang in there, folks...hockey is coming.

The Ford Ice Center Is Open, and It's Spectacular

28

It's been about a year in the making, but the Ford Ice Center in Antioch is finally open for business. I got a chance to take a tour yesterday, and I can tell you, it's a pretty impressive facility.

Thursday's Dump & Chase: Hayes Signs With Rangers

32

While the Preds were reportedly a finalist for Kevin Hayes, the whole thing never made much sense to me. He ditched the Blackhawks because he wanted a shot at an immediate NHL roster spot, and...

OTF Community Guidelines: A Refresher

+

As summer draws to a close, we thought this would be a great time to revisit our community guidelines.

Thursday's Dump & Chase: Happy Birthday, Shea!

42

The Captain turns 29 today! Here's a couple of my favorite highlights, which I'm sure you'll enjoy. Obviously.

Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Happy Birthday, Filip!

57

He's 20 today! Hope you have a great day, buddy...take it easy on the cake, though. Camp starts in a couple of weeks.

Monday's Dump & Chase: Not Much Happening

49

But it's not NOTHING. Check out the evidence below...

Sunday's Dump & Chase: The Countdown Continues

20

32 days until camp opens, 44 days until the preseason opener, 58 days until the regular season. Hang in there folks...hockey is coming.

Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Flyers Sign Del Zotto

34

The Flyers finally acquired a Preds defensemen! Congrats, guys, you did it! I know it's not Shea Weber, but give him a chance...love works in mysterious ways.

Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Are We There Yet?

87

No. The answer is no. Only 37 days until training camp, though. Hang on! You can make it!

Sunday's Dump & Chase: It's Still Summer

86

I know. I can't believe it, either. Rookie camp begins in 46 loooong days. I hope you like fishing or swimming or something. We've still got some time to kill.

Thursday's Dump & Chase: Just The Facts

89

We like to have a good time here at OTF, especially during the summer when nothing much is happening. But we don't just want to be known as a bunch of goofballs...we do real news and analysis, too.

Somethin' Bad

32

I want to be clear...I LOVE Carrie Underwood. We're just having a little fun here. Carrie, if you're reading this...if you'd just send a lock of Mike's hair as I've politely requested, the letters...

Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Last Day to Vote For OTF!

48

This is it! This is your last chance to vote for OTF in the Toast of Music City Reader's Choice Awards! We've finished 3rd the last couple of years, so improving on that would be awesome.

Monday's Dump & Chase:Punch This Week in the Face!

46

I have to say, I'm "coming in hot" on this week already. Time to bring a little truculence to my game and bash this Monday into submission. Wish me luck!

Saturday's Dump and Chase:60 Days Until Camp Opens

122

Veterans report for physicals September 17th, sixty short days from today. Those Not Veteran Enough come in on the 11th, with a rookie tournament at the end of that week...you're so close to hockey...

Thursday's Dump and Chase: Back To Summer

245

We've had a pretty exciting week, but I think you're clear to resume your regular summer activities. The Preds are certainly done, right? Right?

Tuesday's Dump and Chase: Happy Birthday, Barry!

49

Don't focus on the 33 points in 300 games as a player, the -119 career +/-, or the sort of hit-and-miss record as a head coach. The only thing that matters here is the hair...and it's fantastic.

Monday's Dump & Chase: Only 71 Days To Go!

120

The first preseason game against Tampa is September 23rd, which by my very rough and possibly inaccurate count is only 71 days away. Can you feel the excitement!

Saturday's Dump & Chase: Talkin' About Practice

165

What are we talking about? We're talking about practice. Not a game, not a game. Practice, man. Practice. Come on down and check out the scrimmage at 3:30 this afternoon...should be fun! Even if...

Friday's Dump and Chase:Back to Work For Prospects

61

After a day away from the ice yesterday, the guys are back at it this morning. The public session begins at 9a and goes until 12:15p. What are you waiting for...head on down!

Thursday's Dump and Chase: Toews, Kane Re-Sign

41

In case you missed it, our least favorite team in the whole wide world locked up their two best players to twin 8-year, $84 million contracts yesterday. I was hoping they'd hold out for $20 million...

Mattias Ekholm Signs! 2 Years, $2.075 Million

33

Congrats to Nashville's newest millionaire! The "D" is feeling more than solid for the next couple of seasons. Now back to work on the offense...

Wednesday's Dump and Chase: Happy Birthday Jack!

85

What does this have to do with hockey? Basically nothing that I can tell, but he's *from* Nashville, and let's face it, it's kind of a slow news period right now.

The Case For Signing Mike Ribeiro

132

Desperate times call for desperate measures. What are the pros and cons on signing problem child Mike Ribeiro?

Tuesday's Dump and Chase: Prospects Begin Workouts

41

"On-ice testing" is underway right now at Bridgestone Arena. Sounds like skating and stuff, which is a key component of actual hockey. Getting closer! (Have you voted for OTF in the Toast of Music...

Mike Fisher Out 4-6 Months :(

96

This is the absolute worst. Mike Fisher was 4th in scoring for the Preds a season ago, and his leadership, experience, and let's face it, his handsomeness will be very difficult to replace.

Preds Sign Anton Volchenkov

16

Who said the Preds have been inactive in free-agency so far? Ok, just about everybody. But this is something, right? Right?

Monday's Dump and Chase: Let's Go Camping!

201

Happy Monday, everybody! In case you weren't aware, THERE ARE ACTUAL ON-ICE HOCKEY EVENTS THIS WEEK! There's a bunch of stuff open to the public, including a game on Saturday...will you be there?
