Predators: Why Craig Smith is best story of team’s season so far
NASHVILLE, TN – When they’re all gathered together in a small area, as they were at Tuesday’s practice at Centennial Sportsplex, the Nashville Predators are a frightening bunch.
Not like Halloween frightening or bar brawl frightening, but worth a shiver or two if you have any empathy for teams that must play them. And if you’re projecting what the Predators could become before this season’s over … scary. Good scary if you live in Nashville.
There was Filip Forsberg, who’s on his way to another level of NHL stardom, working a drill with Bobby Orr impersonator Viktor Arvidsson. There was P.K. Subban getting a shot past Pekka Rinne. There was recent addition Kyle Turris, showing no ill effects from a puck that smashed him in the cheek a day earlier.
