When you’re trying to protect a castle, you put up as big of a wall as you possibly can to slow down your enemies.  Now, if you don’t have a wall, or enough variables to build one.  The best way to defend your defenseless castle, is to launch an all out assault on your enemy while their deciding their attack strategy.  That’s a long, Dungeons and Dragons/Lord of The Rings way of saying a good defense is a good offense.

The Jets’ home-opener is also their first game against a Divisional opponent – the oft-forgotten Nashville Predators. The new look Preds have made a splash with points in each of their first three games led by the unexpected scoring of Eric Nystrom (4 points), Paul Gaustad (4 points) and Filip Forsberg (4 points). But it’s the new faces that make the team exciting to watch this season, from Peter Laviolette behind the bench to James Neal, Mike Ribeiro, Derek Roy, Olli Jokinen, and Anton Volchenkov on the ice.

A year ago, two October games against a Rinne-less and floundering Predators squad resulted in just one point for the tarmac cowboys, part of a 9-15-5 season record against Central Division opponents.
