151. Nashville was my pick to go to the Stanley Cup out of the West at the beginning of the year. Making that bold move for PK Subban took a lot of guts, but we’re finding out that trading your long time captain may not have been such a great idea. The Preds got out of the gate incredibly slow but have been turning things around lately. Winners of their last three games, the Predators have finally found some cohesiveness in their young forwards group. Ryan Johansen and Fillip Foresberg currently lead the team in scoring which is a great sign. Viktor Arvidsson has been the biggest surprise already with ten goals on the season. The central is a tough division but the Predators are built to go deep in the playoffs. I bet it will be a different story if they somehow meet the Sharks again.. . Previous: 18th.
