David Poile has been around long enough to know that he does not really know right now whether or not he has put together a good roster.

“I think you always believe in your team,” the Nashville Predators general manager told the Nashville Post on Monday. “Maybe you tend to overrate it a little bit in your mind. But then, certainly, something happens in training camp or the first part of the season that solidifies what you knew or maybe slaps you in the face a little bit.”

Maybe Ian Clark will get to the point in his career that he actually can enjoy a summer vacation.

For now, though, the Belmont star needs to be in the gym rather on a beach somewhere just to make sure he still has an NBA career.

The chance to pitch in the Major Leagues is not exactly within Jared Miller’s reach at the moment.

The former Vanderbilt left-hander, though, is on pace to push the Hillsboro (Ore.) Hops’ record for wins well out of reach.

NBC Sports Group apparently does not have much interest in coming to Nashville – unless it absolutely must.

In all, 105 NHL regular-season games will be carried live – 12 on NBC and 93 on NBC Sports Network – during the 2015-16 season. That’s the most since NBC became the league’s primary U.S. broadcast partner.

Only one of those games will be at Bridgestone Arena.

The UFC has finalized its Nashville fight card, the city’s first in nearly three years.

Two highly ranked light heavyweights, No. 4 Glover Teixeira (22-4) and No. 6 Ovince Saint Preux (18-6), will headline the event. After back-to-back losses to then-champion Jon Jones and Phil Davis, Teixeira looks to gain some momentum against rising prospect Saint Preux.

In all, the UFC will stage 13 fights August 8th at Bridgestone Arena.

Corban Joseph wants a second chance to play Major League Baseball.

It does not hurt that it also could mean an opportunity to play with his older brother, Caleb, for the first time since the two were at Franklin High School.

The Nashville Predators and Colin Wilson could have gone through with their scheduled arbitration hearing.

But what would have been the point? The process is designed to create a resolution in cases when the team and player have dramatically different impressions of the player’s worth. That was not the case this time.

Five things to read today...

From On The Forecheck: "Shea Weber May Have Started Declining"

Is Preds' captain Shea Weber on the downslope of his career? Probably. But that's not all that bad:

Many would argue that the Predators would do well to trade Weber away for a true King's Ransom that they could receive in return, which they most definitely would. However, with $52 million already paid out, why do it?

Weber may be on the decline, no longer in the prime of what could easily be a stellar career, but that doesn't take away the fact that he's still one of the better defenseman in the league right now.
