For the first time I got to experience the Predators Skate of the Union event. I came home with pucks signed by Blake Geoffrion and Ryan Suter. I grabbed a Marcel Goc stick as well as one of his name plates, my new prize possessions. The event was a fantastic success, I met many a great Pred fan. I took a shot on the ice and found out where Blake plays beer league hockey in the summer.
New things that we learned yesterday:
Shea Weber negotiations have been start and stop.
There will be renovations to the stadium, which they hope to be a continuous process for the rest of the time that we are in the bridge.
That Mayor Dean told commisioner Betteman that we will be hosting the 2014 all-star game.
That Frankie B. will be ready for camp.
Poile has man crushes on Ekholm, Ellis, Josi, and Craig Smith who turned pro just a few minutes ago. To top that off we may be seeing them in the near near future.
Sully and Dumont will hopefully coming back after retirement.
Brent Wilson will probably be a partial owner as soon as September.
And the most surprising thing of all, Nick Spaling will one day be a top 6 forward.
The group continually talked about how excited they were about this team. They said that our window of opportunity is now open, so lets see it boys.
