To Barry, Lane and Mitch: Thank You

Predators General Manager David Poile Pens Letter to Nashville's Former Coaches After Stanley Cup Victory

by David Poile @PredsNHL / Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager

I remember Barry Trotz helping me pick out the carpeting for the locker room in Nashville like it was yesterday.

It was the summer of 1998, and we had so much to do before we began our first NHL season that fall. But the room needed carpeting, so we set out together to take care of it.

Much like how we laid down the very fabric the players would walk on later that year, Barry helped to lay down the fabric of the Predators in ways no one else could. He was the perfect man for the job, and he served for 16 years while epitomizing what it meant to be a member of this organization. It was the Predator Way - a motto that says what you do on the ice means just as much as the kind of person you are off of it.

Laine, Ehlers learned from veteran Stastny during postseason

Laine: He was always talking to us on the bench

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Trade deadline deals rarely work out as well as the one Kevin Cheveldayoff pulled off on February 26, when he brought Paul Stastny to Winnipeg in exchange for a first round pick in 2018, prospect Erik Foley, and a conditional fourth round selection in 2020.

Stastny was a horse throughout the playoffs, including the gruelling Second Round series against the Presidents Trophy winning Nashville Predators. He recorded 10 points during the seven-game marathon, including two goals and an assist in the deciding Game 7 at Bridgestone Arena. 

It's unknown what the Jets will do with the soon to be unrestricted free agent, but his impact in just under three months was impressive. From the moment Stastny joined the Jets, he was put in the middle of young snipers Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers, who both ended up with career highs in goals.

Golden Knights dream of Hollywood ending for Stanley Cup Final run

Vegas players draw up wish list of actors to portray historic inaugural season

by Shawn P. Roarke @sroarke_nhl / NHL.com Director of Editorial

LAS VEGAS -- The story of the Vegas Golden Knights sounds like a too-good-to-be-true Hollywood pitch: A band of self-described hockey misfits comes together and beats the odds to reach the Stanley Cup Final in their first season.

But this real-life hockey epic is happening and would make a great movie someday.

Game 1 of the best-of-7 Cup Final against the Washington Capitals is at T-Mobile Arena on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, CBC, TVAS).
