P.K. Subban in Nashville now and his endorsement deals should soon follow. A Black star hockey player with a great personality in an American market should be beneficial for his marketing deals. Subban is not only going to a Nashville Predators team that will let P.K. be P.K. which should lead to a great relationship.
The Nashville Predators may have the best top 4 defensemen unit in the NHL with Roman Josi (26), Mattias Ekholm (26), Ryan Ellis (25) and Subban (27). They will have the opportunity to grow in the prime years of their careers together. General Manager David Poile and Coach Peter Laviolette are in an enviable position for years to come.
Nashville’s organization added Ryan Johansen by trading Seth Jones. Johansen is 24 years old, a number one big center and signed Flip Forsberg (22) to a long term deal. Mike Fisher, James Neal and Mike Ribeiro round out their top 6 forwards.
The youthful Predators will have great success with their young core and may be a team to watch next year as a Stanley Cup contender. Pekka Rinne is 34 years old only has a few solid years left before he has to be replaced.
The Predators window of opportunity seem to be closing and now it has been blown wide open again with Poile’s moves for Johansen and Subban. They will be a force to be dealt with in the Western Conference. The Predators are one solid back-up goalie away from having a complete team.
The Predators got younger and added a fun personality with the trade. A younger locker room will appreciate Subban’s enthusiasm and outgoing personality. This will be a great fit for the payer and team. Nashville will enjoy seeing him as a TV personality not just a hockey player.
Are the Predators a threat to win Stanley Cup now?
Have a great day!
