Predators fire Arniel... hire Therrien

After another first round exit, the Predators decided it was time for a change. With the change to a younger team, GM Tremblay thought they needed a coach with a stronger grip: "We love the young player's enthousiasm, but at the same time they need a coach that will be able to keep the team disciplined and focused".

The Predators announced that Michel Therrien would replace Arniel as the new bench boss. According to Therrien, the team was in need of better training, as "they are too soff".

Therrien will have a challenging year ahead, as the young Predators will lack the top scoring talent he's had in the past.
