Hard not to be excited about hockey today. Peter Forsberg a Pred? With Paul Kariya, Tomas Vokoun, Kimmo Timonen, we practically have an all-star team on the ice when they're playing up to par. Fun to hear how excited the team is about getting their new hall-of-fame teammate.
"It's incredible to be bringing a guy like him on board," said Predators left wing Paul Kariya, who played one season with Forsberg in Colorado.Here's hoping they don't just stand around watching him the first few games. And hoping this translates into more butts in seats. If you're in Nashville and never been to a game, this is a good time to start, and if you've only been to a few - this is a good time to become a regular.
"Excitement isn't a big enough word to describe what we're feeling. Everyone is so pumped up. He's one of the best — if not the best — players in the world, and to add him to our team is pretty special."
"It's hard to believe," Predators captain Kimmo Timonen said. "It's like a big energy boost for the whole team. He's a world-class player, one of the best in the league, and I can't wait to play with him."
