08:23 AM ET 06.11 | In a recent interview, Predators GM David Poile was quick to point out that the club "had an exciting season," but that it was time to move on from some of its recent acquisitions. "I guess it could be argued that some worked out and some didn't work out. I don't regret anything we did. I thought it was very exciting for our team and our fans; I truly believe we had as good a chance as we've ever had to win in the playoffs and compete for the Stanley Cup. Having said that, Andrei Kostitsyn is not going to be back and now. ... [Alexander Radulov] is not going to be back, but I'm very comfortable with who we have and who we have coming up."

Why is this becoming a thing we have to read about?

Who knows. But I am sure glad the interns saw fit to put the parenthetical "with the Canadiens" in the caption. I thought the preds changed their uniforms

Well, naming a team in Nashville the "Canadiens" would be on par with other team names that scream local flavour, such as "Lakers", "Jazz", "Grizzlies", "Hornets", "Wizards", "Raptors" (okay so basically every NBA team name).And at least people wouldn't conjure up images of Chris Hansen when thinking about your team?

You mean naming a team after pants isn't ridiculous?

Just the other day I was thinking about how bad of a name the Raptors is....my god, is there really a worse name in pro sports? This was like some marketing guy sitting at his desk (you know the type, he uses alot of buzz words to prove that he's 'got swag', and knows all about 'the game')...so he thinks to himself, 'Man, that Jurassic Park film really cleaned up at the box office...kids really must like dinosaurs. Well then, since the Raptor was even more bad-**** than the T-rex in that film, we just GOTTA name our new team the CRAPTORS'. And on top of that we gotta give'em the lamest colour scheme known to man...some deep purple with red, black & silver.

Seriously, it's one of the most incredible uniform and naming screwjobs ever and the bunch at MLSE just nodded their heads and went right along with it, 'of course mister marketing guru, whatever you say, as long as you make us lots & lots of money'.

I've been pushing a change the name to the Huskies since forever. Besides the fact the name is ridiculous, all they've done with it is suck terribly. Start fresh.

I think if any To***to fan base should be yelling Mush it would be the Leafs.
