I'd figured I would go ahead and start this, even though I will probably be only one of few posting things in it. The offseason has already begun. But I wanted to start it out by saying that Weber was just announced as a finalist for the Norris trophy this year. The other 2 were Chara and Keith. Weber deserves it hands down, but my gut feeling is that Keith will take it this year. Weber led all defensemen in goals and powerplay goals. He set a franchise record this year for most points by a defensemen (previously held by Timonen), and has been the Preds scoring leader for 2 straight years. He's a rare and once-in a lifetime defensemen. One that can shut down any player in the league, and turn around and go down and score. The draft is also coming up in exactly 2 months. This will be the first year that the Preds have both a 1st round AND a 2nd round pick. Also, I am hoping the Preds hire Peter Laviolette to be the new coach of the Preds, and I hope they pursue him fast before other teams start searching. Also, Poile needs to simmer back down to reality and actually try to draft offense first, instead of defense. If the Preds can grab Dal Colle or Virtanen, I will be happy. Both have huge potential, and with upcoming prospects like Forsberg and Pontus Aberg, the Preds could have quite a nice offense since the Jason Arnott erra.
