James Neal sees the Predators as his opportunity for a fresh start.
"Your emotion gets the better of you," said Neal. There were things that have happened in my game that you regret. I have to change and be better for it. I've changed as a player, I've grown as a player. I'm still young, I have a very long way to go. Mistakes happen and I'm going to be better for it and move forward and not let that stuff happen again." He has some character issues and the tendency to run around on the ice, looking for trouble when things aren't going his way. If he can take that aspect out of his game then he will be better for it. Neal has an excellent release and one-timer, which he used to score 40 goals in 2011-12. He has surpassed the 20-goal mark in each of his six NHL seasons. Repeating that feat in Nashville will be more difficult, but he has the tools to do it. Jul 5 - 6:37 PM
