Opponent’s site: On the Forecheck
It’s been a long time since the Leafs played the Nashville Predators. I’d look it up, but I’m confident the broadcast will mention it seven or eight times, so let’s keep it a mystery until then. Also tonight is a tribute to Dion Phaneuf, who has formally retired now.
Okay, who are the Predators now? There’s no Pekka Rinne, no Viktor Arvidsson or Ryan Ellis. Is this even the same team? In their last game, a stomping of the hapless Coyotes, they looked like this:
Luke Kunin - Mikael Granlund - Matt Duchene
Tanner Jeannot - Ryan Johansen - Philip Tomasino
Yakov Trenin - Colton Sissons - Mathieu Olivier
Michael McCarron - Thomas Novak - Eeli Tolvanen
Roman Josi - Dante Fabbro
Mattias Ekholm - Matt Benning
Mark Borowiecki - Philippe Myers
Okay, my first question was did they trade Filip Forsberg?
