No. 22:  Nashville Predators

Previous:  20th

Season Record:  12-11-4

The Preds were supposed to take the Central Division by storm when they acquired P.K. Subban at the beginning of the season.  Well, that hasn’t exactly happened.  They’ve had a pretty mediocre season at best.  As a matter of fact, they lost to the bottom of the basement in the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, 4-1.   They’re currently in fifth place in the Central Division, ahead of only the Dallas Stars and the Colorado Avalanche.
