Shea Weber has managed to keep a core group of Nashville Predators players practicing with each other during the lockout.
That group currently includes Mike Fisher, Martin Erat, Scott Hannan, Hal Gill, Matt Halischuk Brian McGrattan, and Nick Spaling. "I think we've all got hopes still and that's why we're here," Weber said. "We're still practicing. I think we're so close there's no reason why we can't get a deal done. Obviously we're still working towards that, and hopefully we can get something figured out."
