Who says baseball should be the only sport with matinee games?

The Predators just released their pre-season schedule. I'm happy to see us continue the relationship with the Atlanta Thrashers and i hope we get to play them more often in the regular season as well. It's an obvious friendly-rivalry that would benefit both teams.

Most interesting here are the new rookie games - and one at 11:00am!

My guess is that these are in place of a few scrimmages that would normally happen during camp. No details yet on who will play in the games, but i think it is a safe bet to say the first 2-3 lines of the Predators won't be there. I doubt if they literally only play based on NHL experience an 'rookie' qualifications. The normal pre-season games are at or near full price for tickets. I'll be curious if the rookie games are open for free to the public, discounted, or something else (especially that mid-morning game). Could be very cool.

Someone made the comment that the 11:00am game might also be a way for schools to plan field trips...good for the team and the kids.
