The Predators end the season with back-to-back wins versus the Hurricanes! Nathan & Mark reflect on the season: were you surprised by the last two games? What’s your take of the season’s highs and lows? Finally, Nathan gives his round one playoff prediction.
JC is back! We talk about what’s happened to the lineup with the stars coming back, Has Duchene bought in, and is it ‘if’ or ‘when’ the Preds make the playoffs.
With a handful of games left the guys answer if they want the team to make the playoffs, if this team is like the 16-17 team, and take a look at the remaining schedule as the Preds make a final playoff push. Oh, and there’s also some talk of a Stanley KEG match-up between the Below Average Joe’s and the Mighty Drunks!
Nathan and Dave look at the Pred’s Roster: As Forsberg, Duchene, and Tovlenan return to line-up, which three forwards do you remove? Also, who do you pick, Olivier or Jeannot?
Are the Nashville Predators for real, Did we not give Hynes enough time? With the team on a winning streak this close to the trade deadline do you buy, sell, or stand pat?
David and Nathan celebrate the demise of Tim Peel then talk about the upcoming trade deadline… what are the Preds going to do!? Oh yeah, and all that Central Division, Game Post-Postmortems, and talk about nasty beer…. lot of nasty beer!
The Predators come out of a rough week with points in the Central Division. David, JC, Mark, and Nathan play a game of Keep/Trade/Drop. What happens to the rookies once the vets get healthy?

David, JC, and Mark bring ya the Central Division goodness, then some Post-Mortem bad-ness. The guys discuss Niederreiter’s hit on Saros, and then ask, “is it time for the rebuild to start yet!?”
David, JC, and Nathan are back with the Central Division Update, and Game Recaps for the week. They then ask if Rinne has reclaimed the starting job, If Tolvanen is off the taxi squad, and a painful one; what would you get back for a Forsberg trade?
David, Mark, and Nathan share their ideas: what has to change? What moves should the Predators make to salvage the season or start a much-needed rebuild? There’s no optimism in the answers… Or the Week Ahead.
David, Nathan, Mark and JC question GM David Poile’s abilities as Preds GM: Is he good, lucky, has the game moved on without him?
Dave, Nathan bring JC up to speed on the amazing comeback vs. the Panthers! What does this mean for the lowly Central Division Preds? What’s the biggest surprise & disappointment so far. Is JOFA still a thing?
Nathan, Mark and JC are here with the Central standings ever (the Preds in first?), hate on NBC broadcasters, then preview upcoming games.
We had Discord issues (again) which cut out more of our discussion. We’ll be back at 100% next episode!
We’re doing some remodeling here at DSH with a new logo… but still here with the hockey news you expect: Central Division standings, game reactions, talk about our expectations for the team, then prepare for another week of Preds hockey! We did have some audio issues and have done our best to minimize the listening experience.
Lets just jump right in shall we? David and JC cover all the topics: Departures, trades, free-agent signings, oh… and still manage to cover other happenings around the NHL.

We’re back after an extended pause on the 20-21 NHL Season. Lets talk the playoff structure, a proposed schedule for returning to play, then “Big Brain Dave” breaks down the NHL Draft.
David, JC and Nathan just don’t know anymore. The Preds are still unpredictable and will show they want in the playoffs one game, then will not show up in games they should win. We discuss what the team must do to make the playoffs, then ask if we should focus on statistics as much as we do.
When you don’t have power for a few days you can’t edit & release a podcast episode. Here’s the discussion Mark, JC, and Nathan had onepisode 19: Should there be reviewable penalties in the NHL? What would this look like realistically.
