The Nashville Predators surprised the hockey world yesterday when they fired longtime head coach Peter Laviolette. 

After making the Stanley Cup Finals a couple of years ago, things have completely started to fall apart in Nashville. 

Supposed to be a contender this year, the team just can't seem to get it going. 

General manager David Poile has made his decision on a new head coach and he's one of the many coaches who got fired early this year. 

The Predators have decided to hire former New Jersey Devils' head coach John Hynes. 

Announcement will be made soon.
