It's true that the Nashville Predators' fan base isn't as big as other franchises in the NHL. It's true that the Preds haven't been around nearly as long as most of the franchises in the NHL. It's true that the Preds don't have the history that other teams do. But I think it's also true that we have some of the best fans in the NHL.
It's been said that Nashville is one of the toughest places to in the NHL. And I think the great thing is that our fan base is growing. The city of Nashville is finally starting to really support our hockey team, and I think it's fair to say that Nashville is becoming a hockey town.
I haven't been exposed to other hockey cities throughout my life time, but I would be willing to put our fan base up against any fan base in the NHL. I know we don't have the numbers, but we do have the passion of any fan base in the league. And I'm proud to be a part of it.
