Taylor Beck still unsigned, active in camp

While the more prominent discussion could be on how Ryan Ellis’ contract situation continues to unfolds with the Nashville Predators without the presence of the young defenseman at camp, another restricted free agent also remains in contract discussions with the team.

Moving on: saying goodbye to 303

Last April, I knew my days of covering the Nashville Predators as a credentialed member of the media were coming to a close.

Previewing The Nashville Predators

from Gare Joynce of Sportsnet, Biggest storyline to watch: Poile was a voice in the wilderness — a league executive who stood by his coach through thick and mostly thin. Laviolette is the face of a Nashville reboot as much as James Neal. If Laviolette enjoys early success, many will suggest Poile waited too long to change the culture in the organization. If Laviolette is...
