Nashville Predators

You'd think this would be the easiest post in the world to write but with work and what not it's been quite difficult to get this up. The Nashville Predators are not only our Central Division Rivals, but they are also my cousins favorite team. Needless to say we get into quite a few arguments over this. When you look at the Nashville Predators of last year and compare them to the Predators of this year I don't really think there is any comparison. Last year they had Paul Kariya, Kimmo Timonen, and at the trade deadline picking up Peter Forsberg, this year when you look at their team you don't really see any of those "stars" but their young guys really stepped up last year and I am sure this year they will have only improved. There are so many reasons why I hate the Preds, Jordin Tootoo, the fact that we lost every game that we played them last season. But, I have a lot of faith that my boys will in fact win the series with the Nashville Predators this season. Mainly because they lost their fan favorite goaltender Vokoun to the Florida Panthers. They lost Paul Kariya, Kimmo Timonen, Scott Hartnell, Sheldon Brookbank (who is ours now), Vitali Vishnevski. Their team lost a lot of people, but they had some significant signings including Radek Bonk, Martin Gelinas, Jed Ortmeyer, and Greg de Vries. Still with losing their Captain, Paul Kariya, and Hartnell they are going to be a much worse team come October.
