Ex-player sues Titans for $25M

The Tennessee Titans have been hit with a $25 million lawsuit by former player David Givens, who accuses team officials of withholding knowledge of "a large defect" in one of his knees. Givens, who joined the Titans in the spring of 2006, injured his knee later that year and needed several surgeries that ended his career.

Givens first filed suit in September 2009, but a federal judge dismissed it five months later, stating that Givens must first go through an arbitration process. Givens' most recent filing states that it has been six months since the last arbitration filings and a decision has yet be made in those proceedings.

On the eve of the playoffs, the Nashville Predators have earned an accolade. BMO Capital Markets' Doug Porter analyzed the return-on-investment for each of the NHL's 30 clubs, determining which earned the most points per million spent in payroll.

Number one?

The Nashville Predators are the Hockey Cents champions this year. Nashville earned more than two points for every million spent, finishing with more than 100 points, even with one of the lowest outlays in the league. Nashville made it to the Conference semi-finals last year, and ended the regular season on a strong note.

The Preds finished the season with a salary cap number of roughly $51.6 million, an actual salary outlay of $54 million and with a record of 48-26-8, good for 104 points, fourth place in the Western Conference, earning home-ice advantage for the first time.
