08:23 AM ET 11.27 | While wearing a beard that's in playoff mode, Shea Weber on Monday, like most players, still had the reality of the lockout staring him in the face. Since the NHL lockout began on Sept. 15, [Weber] has tried to hold his group in Nashville steady. He's even attempted to bring in some other Predators who are training in other cities. ... [Weber] remains optimistic that he can keep a good-size group in Nashville until a deal is reached. ... [The] same core group of players has remained at A-Game Sportsplex. It includes defenseman Hal Gill, along with forwards Mike Fisher, Martin Erat, Brian McGrattan, Matt Halischuk and Nick Spaling. Defenseman Scott Hannan, an offseason acquisition, recently has started practicing with the group.

They told me LA was full of morons... but this dude is nuttier than squirrel turds...

Anyways, no matter what you do to keep yourself entertained, Mr. Weber, there's not a lot of point trying to force something that won't come to pass...

Didn't know that was part of his job description in his new contract.

I find it morbidly ironic that in nature a gathering of Predators is usually due to the death of a larger animal.......

Put another nail in for me, I am so tired of West Coast announcers crying everytime their team get behind I have to put a towel under the TV.

They should practice and keep in shape, I think the Wings are too, otherwise all you'll have is alot of pulled and strained muscles if the impossible happens.

I'll grant you that, they should do as much as they can to keep themselves ready for whatever may come, but in all sincerity, don't you think a malaise would be hitting even the most hardcore of workout fanatics amongst the players by now?

No team deserved to win the 100th GC more than the Toronto Argonauts, the oldest continously named NA sports team (founded in 1873)

Not the hardcore, workout to them is like a religon, but the rest I'll grant you. Too bad a bunch of lawyers stuck their noses in all this.
