Tuesday afternoon, Shea Weber and Matt Cullen of the Nashville Predators held a conference call to answer questions on the hiring of head coach Peter Laviolette. The main takeaway, especially from Matt Cullen who played for Laviolette in Carolina, was that his style is very uptempo and focuses on generating offense from all aspects of the ice. Below are quotes and highlights from the conference call.


Predators fans should expect to see a completely different on-ice product this fall, which hopefully means more scoring and production from players with the potential to do so. Make sure to go and vote in our polls and give your instant reaction the the hiring.
