    Anyone have the preds as a top 3 team in the league?

    Ya, me neither.

    Why wouldn't the Preds be a top team? They're really good.

    Yeah the Preds are definitely right near the top. Not sure why anyone would think otherwise.

    It's kinda his thing...he likes to pass himself off as the only person in the universe that noticed the Nashville team trending upwards.

    zeke if you have the time I'd love to take a dive into some of the simpler advanced numbers to compare the actual performance of team's with what can reasonably be expected based on the metrics (i.e. are the Isles actually good?)

    I was actually looking into the isles over the weekend. I think they're running a bit hot offensively - i.e. i doubt bailey and lee end up ppg+ or barzal and leddy as 70+pt guys - but otherwise they look pretty good. their offense is legit really good, and their defense corps solid up and down. goalies are a question mark though.

    Well, he is right. Who else could have possibly seen this coming, except for a devoted, loyal, die-hard fan of the Nashville Predators?

    It's not like they were playing in the Stanley Cup final six months ago, after all.

    And it's not like they've since added the Eastern finalist's #1 center, and the Cup champion's 3rd line center.

    Not even preds fans saw this coming.

    I know, l because I post over at ontheforecheck quite a bit. But, if you guys here saw the team that made it in as a wildcard would be dominating the league this season and would be considered one of the elite teams this year, power to ya.


    I don't really care because its been a fun season to watch them regardless. I wish Poile spoke French.

    Nashville was kinda hard to see coming, because their success is based on trades (Subban, Johansen, Turris) and unexpected stars (Forsberg, Arvidsson, Ekholm). Its kind of the opposite of the Leafs or Jets who you could see stockpiling elite talent draft after draft.

    Poile has done a crazy good job. And with Tolvanen dominating the KHL it looks like they are just going to get better.

    Ya, minus Rinne, they are a young team too.

    Though I totally expect Poile to flip Rinne for Price.

    the preds were a top-5 possession team last year. they had a bad first half of last year where they were barely over .500, but dominated the 2nd half and the playoffs.

    I think they're running a lot hot offensively, a good group but there's something close to 0% chance that Bailey & Lee end up within shouting distance of PPG+.

    OiSH%

    Tavares: 14.1%
    Bailey: 13.0%
    Lee: 14.0
    Ho Sang: 13.4%

    It's over for Chicago, they should sell, assuming they have anything to sell.

    Are things really that grim in Chicago?

    I mean, they do have great young players like Ryan Hartman.

    Kane would have good value. I'm not sure Toews does at that salary.

    the Toews and Seabrook contracts are killers. Kane is still super awesome, but they've just bled way too much depth over the years, and a few of those contracts are catching up to them. Was still a helluva impressive run.
