Game(s)Thread: Florida Panthers Preseason Split-Squad Doubleheader Saturday from Nashville

No TV, no radio, no problem. Yuck it up right here throughout the day.


UPDATE: Preds take Game One 2-1 in a shootout after Brandon Pirri ties the match late. More to come later.

Thanks to San Antonio Rampage radio voice Dan Weiss (@DanWeissPBP) via @KWilsonPreds, we present Florida's rosters for the split-squad doubleheader preseason event from the Bridgestone Arena. Games begin at 4 and 8 pm (ET), and will feature no television or radio broadcasts. Actually we can definitely declare no radio broadcast will be available, but if the Predators decide to make a TyrannoVision feed available outside of Tennessee, we'll let you know ASAP (would not be unprecedented but don't hold your breath).

That being the case we will not be hosting a formal (or otherwise) GameThread for either match; since the majority of us cannot watch or listen in, the point would be most moot, so here is your all-day Caterwaulish thread in their place. Post up your finds from Twitter and elsewhere, rumors, whatever. And do pop in to the formidable On The Forecheck, our Nashville cousins, for their take on today's six or so hours of action.
