Mason talks Predators coaching on NHL @TheRink podcast

Stars defenseman Klingberg, columnist Cotsonika also join Rosen, Roarke on latest episode @NHLdotcom

The Nashville Predators coaching change is the big topic of conversation on this week's episode of NHL @TheRink.

Chris Mason, a former Predators goalie who is now an analyst for their broadcasts on Fox Sports Tennessee, joins co-hosts Dan Rosen and Shawn P. Roarke to discuss the change from Peter Laviolette to John Hynes, who was introduced as Nashville's new coach Tuesday.

Nick Cotsonika, columnist, also weighs in with his opinion on the Predators coaching change and where they go from here. 

Cotsonika, Rosen and Roarke follow the Predators talk by getting into a conversation that ranges in topics featuring the St. Louis Blues and Jordan Binnington's one-year anniversary of his first NHL start, the Edmonton Oilers as a Stanley Cup Playoff team and a rehash of the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

The episode also features an interview with Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg.

Rosen and Roarke riff on some playoff bubble teams and if they might be sellers or buyers prior to the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline on Feb. 24 (3 p.m. ET), talk about the New York Rangers three-goalie system after the recall of Igor Shesterkin from Hartford of the American Hockey League, and dive into reasons why the Tampa Bay Lightning seem to be back on track.

The podcast is free and listeners can subscribe on all podcast platforms. It is also available on and the NHL app.
