What I hope was under the #Preds Christmas Trees:

It’s like a version of Jimmy Kimmel’s #meantweets … I call them #PredsMeanTweets though honestly, I don’t think they are too far off the mark… It’s like, What should we get Gabby Bourque for Christmas? HANDS!!!

So, here’s my Preds Christmas list:

2 – ANTHONY BITETTO: Rustoleum

3 – SETH JONES: Fans that believe in him and want him to stay. You know, fans that actually UNDERSTAND hockey

4 – RYAN ELLIS: four more inches (mind out of the gutter, I’m talking vertical)

5 – BARRET JACKMAN: A legitimate chance to win a cup… you know, come the trade deadline, HE could be a valuable piece for a true contender!

6 – SHEA WEBER: a couple of solid stick marks, board burns, and a tear or two on that pristine Game Worn that rarely comes in contact with a feisty opponent

8 – PETTER GRANBERG: A better fate than the last ex-Maple Leaf defenseman had in Smashville

9 – FILIP FORSBERG: A chance to play in a monster All Star Game… A chance to play WELL in a monster All Star Game

11 – CODY HODGSON: A better fate than Derek Roy or Matt Hendricks

12 – MIKE FISHER: Domination as the Preds 3C

14 – MATTIAS EKHOLM: A long, steady, injury-free career (and an IKEA in Nashville)

15 – CRAIG SMITH: Anti-Invisible Cream (to be applied BEFORE we notice he’s gone 10 games without a point.)

18 – JAMES NEAL: THE HAT TRICK: An Oscar, An Emmy, A Golden Globe

19 – CALLE JARNKROK: Respect (and continued maturation)

20 – MIIKKA SALOMAKI: To have a roll named after him at Nomzilla

24 – ERIC NYSTROM: Hand me down hands from his dad (to match the heart he was already given)

28 – PAUL GAUSTAD: Value at the deadline

30 – CARTER HUTTON: A new 5-year contract… …replacing Lyndsay Rowley

33 – COLIN WILSON: (with apologies for his 4AM omission) Obviously, he seems to share in riches with #15, so he should have some of that cream… and for all my female friends: A Hanes endorsement deal.

35 – PEKKA RINNE: To stop this guy every time these two teams meet, and having to hear Brent Peterson describe it!

38 – VIKTOR ARVIDSSON: To never visit Milwaukee again, and remove the velcro from the outside of his gloves in the 3rd period

51 – AUSTIN WATSON: Gummy Bears in the Press Box?

57 – GABRIEL BOURQUE: Seriously… I’ve been asking for three full years. This man needs HANDS … stat!

59 – ROMAN JOSI: A better publicist

63 – MIKE RIBEIRO: A Cher video, and a hunger for a new contract

84 – COLTON SISSONS: A chance to captain a team to the (Calder) Cup, and then a chance to share his experience.

…and to Coach PETER LAVIOLETTE: At least a point after three games at the start of the 2016-17 season

  1. Did you find the spell checking tool under your tree? Even the title of the piece is is wrong. What I hope was? Don’t you mean what I hoped was? And, it’s Eric Nystrom, with a C.
