Nashville backup goalie Carter Hutton has been impressed by the shot of James Neal during informal skates.
"A lot of guys give you more information. You can kind of read where pucks are going," Hutton said. "With him it's hard to pick up his stick blade and where it goes from there. He's one of those shooters who is very patient. He gives a lot of false information, and moves the puck in a lot of locations. He's one of those guys where you have to be patient." Neal said his shot selection will change based on where he is on the ice and a goaltender's tendencies. The former Penguins winger is expected to add an offensive element to the Predators that the team hasn't had in a while and a 30-goal campaign should be in the cards. Sep 8 - 5:28 PM
