more respect

It looks like the respect and media coverage for the Preds is continuing to snowball.

  • Kimo Timmonen was just named to his second All-Star game appearance.
  • Head Coach Barry Trotz will be the assistant coach for the game (by virtue of being in 2nd place in the conference).
  • Shea Webber and Alexander Radulov will play in the Young Stars game.
  • Radulov just got a feature story on the front of NHL.com. Though the Tennessean should sue them for it. It is almost a word-for-word copy of a story about Radulov's celebration's that the Nashville paper did exactly one month (and i wrote about here.)
  • This article on SI.com argued that Paul Kariya and Chris Mason should have made the All-Star squad too. Oh well.
  • Si.com also gave us an "A" for the mid-season grade. Not the A+ that a couple of other teams got, but better than most. Also named Chris Mason the first-half MVP and called Timmonen a Norris trophy contender.
Also an interesting note: Former Pred Yanic Perreault (a journeyman face-off specialist who was unsigned at the begining of the season and is largely credited for helping turn around Phoenix's year) has made the All-Star game as well. Go Yanic!
