Turmoil in Nashville continues

The early favorite for the worst team in 2007-08 is one that has already seen its share of turmoil following the most successful season in its history.

Weeks after the announcement that the team was being sold to former Penguins suitor Jim Balsillie, the breakup of the Nashville Predators is underway.

On Monday, the team dealt stars Kimmo Timonen and Scott Hartnell to Philadelphia for a draft pick -- the selection they sent to the Flyers at the trade deadline to acquire Peter Forsberg, who's likely has played his final NHL game.

The Predators set single season bests with 51 wins and 110 points this past season, but lost to San Jose in the Western Conference quarterfinals for the second straight year.
