"When I first started in '99, it was my first year in the NHL, we were still kind of as strength coaches on the outer fringe of the staff and not every team had one," says Good.
Good is in his 9th season with the Preds. His role in the team's success may not be as vital as the head coach's, but the players say they rely on both men.
"We work with him pretty closely on individual needs and different things that we got to do to be ready to play," says Mike Fisher.
David's fitness room is loaded with a slew of equipment. Some of it's there to help players with their speed. Some of it's to help with conditioning. Other machines increase explosiveness.
"It's a very high impact fast sport so you have to have that power and strength generation as your foundation, and then you work on your stability and core strength," says Good. "It's all tied in, it's all just as important."
Shea Weber got the message, the captain winning the team's overall fitness award 3 out of the last 4 years!
"You can see Shea Weber's name is up there several times," says Good. "He's just our leader on and off the ice."
"For a lot of us he's been here the whole way with us," says Weber. "We've come to summer camps, we've worked with him there, and obviously keeping in touch with him throughout the summer and what you're doing, what he wants you to do, obviously we're in constant contact with him when we are here."
So the moral to this story: the Predators wouldn't be capable of great without Good.
