Emails to the Editor: October 17, 2010
The first two weeks of the season are in the books and the Preds are off to a strong start, including an entertaining Opening Day last Saturday complete with a Red Carpet Player Entrance. Smashville's in full force and excitement is rising for the '10-11 season. Here's the best emails from the week. Have something to add? Shoot us a message and you could be involved in next week's Emails to the Editor. It's a new feature to the site and we had a limited number of submissions this week, but look forward to hearing your feedback!

Derrick Rutter Brought a die hard football fan to the game(his first), and he was blown away by the action !!!! The Preds have a new, exicted fan as of tonight. Great game tonight, after a impressive win in Chi-town ! WooHoo !!

Tami Floyd Wilson Wendy's is gonna have to invest in more Frosty makers!!! Go PREDS!

David Carmichel Joel Ward's goal was wonderful. His hat is priceless


Where do you think recently acquired, Dan Gendur, will be playing this season.
Eric M. (Lake Stevens, WA)
editor: Dan has opened the season in the Central Hockey League. He spent most the '08-09 and '09-10 seasons in the ECHL.

I was wondering if you could ask a player how much the fights really hurt/ how long it takes to recover.
Seth Dean (Nashville, TN)
editor: Spoke with a couple of players about this and the answer depends on the fight. The ones where guys are squaring off and trading punches can really injure a guy -- you see it a couple times a month across the NHL where a player doesn't return to the game after a fight. Last year Cody Franson broke his nose during a preseason game fight and missed time in training camp. It's also not uncommon to hear of guys coming out of fights with bruised/broken hands or wrists.
Name That Picture!
Preds fans here's your chance to become a headline writter. Each week we'll select a picture; all you have to do is come up with the best caption to describe it. The next week we'll display the best entries; extra credit for hockey humor (but keep it clean). Here's your first chance ... remeber click here to enter
This week we'll even start you off with an example to beat:   Wardo, have you seen our new goalie, he's like "this big."
