Why are all the Nashville teams tradeing for players on the worst teams in sport? Titans keep grabbing players from Buffalo and Detroit. Now the Preds are trading potential scoring for a Florida Panther castoff. As bad as the Preds need scoring. I don't get it. AS it is poor Rinne has to pitch a shut out to get a win now.

Go Dores, Preds, Titans! Go Nashville a great place to live!
