GM David Poile reflects on 2021-22 season

Nashville Predators General Manager David Poile discusses the 2021-22 season and looks ahead to 2022-23.

  • 26:45 •

Two Mondays ago, the Nashville Predators were left with an empty feeling.

So, as the sun came up the morning after they were swept by the Colorado Avalanche in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, those in the Preds hockey operations department got back to work, just as every team does when they don't finish the season with the ultimate prize.

That's the scene that plays out across 31 of 32 organizations around the League at some point every spring, and over the past 10 days, the Predators have been searching for answers to the questions that arise after moments like this.

On Thursday morning, Preds General Manager David Poile and Head Coach John Hynes took their turn to address those items as they held their season-ending press conference, and the GM was direct from the beginning.

They Said It: Top Quotes from the Preds on Locker Cleanout Day

Josi, Forsberg, Saros, Duchene, Ekholm Tomasino Talk 2021-22 Campaign as Offseason Arrives

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Content Manager & Beat Reporter

Emotions were still rather raw for the Predators less than 24 hours after being eliminated in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and understandably so.

After putting together a regular season hardly anyone saw coming, no one inside the Nashville locker room expected to be swept in the first round by the Colorado Avalanche, but that was the reality as Preds players addressed the media on Tuesday evening.

With their hockey bags packed and waiting in the event level hallway outside the team's locker room inside Bridgestone Arena, the Predators discussed plenty, including what happened over the past week to lead to the eventual outcome. Goaltender Juuse Saros's injury was a hot topic, as was forward Filip Forsberg's future, both of which may be read about further by clicking the appropriate link in this sentence.

Locker Cleanout: Saros

Juuse Saros looks back on the 2021-22 season

Preds goaltender Juuse Saros explains his injury that kept him out of the postseason and looks back on the 2021-22 campaign.

  • 08:02 •

Juuse Saros isn't a doctor, but when he felt a "pop" during the third period of the final Predators home game of the regular season a couple weeks back, he figured the prognosis wouldn't be great.

Nashville's goaltender confirmed Tuesday he did indeed suffer an ankle injury on April 26, an ailment that kept him out of the final two contests of the season - and eventually all four games the Preds played against Colorado in the first round of the playoffs.

Speaking with the media as Predators players gathered for the final time before going their separate ways to start the offseason, Saros went into detail of the injury that seemingly occurred on a play that happens countless times throughout the course of a normal game as his season came to an abrupt end.

Filip Forsberg looks back on 2021-22 season

Preds forward Filip Forsberg looks back on the 2021-22 season and discusses the upcoming offseason with free agency ahead.

  • 08:49 •

Filip Forsberg didn't mean any disrespect when he told members of the media on Tuesday he would rather not be speaking about the season that was.

Preparing for a Game 5 back in Colorado would have been preferred, but as the Predators saw their run come to a close on Monday night, a four-game sweep at the hands of the Avalanche, Forsberg and his teammates were left disappointed, to say the least.

So, the Nashville winger, who tallied a career-high 42 goals - just one off of teammate Matt Duchene's 43 for the franchise record - over the past six-plus months, was instead reflecting on what was, what could have been and what's still to come.
