2010-11 Nashville Predators NHL Predictions and Odds

In recent years, the Nashville Predators have been stuck in NHL purgatory in that the franchise is never good enough to be a serious contender in the playoffs but never bad enough to possibly draft that franchise-changing talent at the top of the first round. The Preds have qualified for the postseason in every year but one since 2004 but still haven’t won a playoff series.

Last year, the Preds finished with 100 points, which is the third time in the past five seasons they reached triple digits, and ended up third in the Central Division. Nashville did give the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks major headaches in last year’s first round, however. Don’t forget that Nashville was less than 60 seconds from taking a 3-2 series lead on the Blackhawks but gave up a short-handed goal to Patrick Kane with 13.6 seconds left in Game Five and then an overtime winner to Marian Hossa. It was the closest the Hawks came to being in dire trouble in last season’s playoffs.

The 2010-11 Nashville Predators schedule opens at home against the Ducks.

Nashville Predators Offseason Moves
Budgetary concerns probably are always going to play a big role in how this small-market franchise operates. This offseason GM David Poile traded team captain Jason Arnott in a deal that brought him $ 4.5 million in cap space and as well as a young, inexpensive forward in Matt Halischuk. Poile used that cap room to sign Matthew Lombardi as Arnott’s replacement. He also signed restricted free-agent defenseman Ryan Parent after acquiring him from the Flyers for defenseman Dan Hamhuis.

Poile also traded the rights to free agent goaltender Dan Ellis (now in Tampa) and restricted free agent forward Dustin Boyd to the Montreal Canadiens for the rights to restricted free agent Sergei Kostitsyn, a talented but inconsistent player. Ellis really isn’t much of a loss because Pekka Rinne emerged as the clear-cut starter in the latter part of last season.

Probably the biggest move was the Preds re-signing restricted free agent Patric Hornqvist to a three-year, $ 9.25 million extension. Hornqvist was the final overall pick in the 2005 draft but exploded with 30 goals last season.

Nashville Predators Predictions: Outlook
Nashville has two excellent defensemen in captain Shea Weber and Ryan Suter—that’s easily a top-five pairing in the NHL. And defense no doubt will again be the team’s calling card, although Hamhuis will be missed. Nashville was the only Western Conference playoff team that did not finish the 2009-10 regular season with a positive goal differential. But the Predators were an excellent 28-9-6 in one-goal games.

The offensively challenged club is banking on the 22-year-old Kostitsyn finally living up to his purported talent—he has just 24 goals in his 155 career games and never has had more than nine in a single season. Plus, he was known as a very high-maintenance player in Montreal (i.e. he had an attitude problem). The Predators also could use a bounce-back season from David Legwand, who slipped to 38 points last year. Martin Erat (whose giveaway led to the Kane goal in the playoffs), J.P. Dumont, Colin Wilson (15 points in 35 games as a rookie) and Steve Sullivan round out the top forwards on the club.

Nashville better hope that Rinne (32-16-5, 2.53 goals-against average and .911 save percentage last season) wasn’t a one-year wonder because there’s no experienced backup now. Rinne played in 58 games last year and probably will be counted on for at least 65 this season.

Nashville Predators NHL Odds
The Preds over/under for points is 89.5. They are +1000 to win the Central Division, which is third in the division with St. Louis. Nashville is 25/1 to win the West and 50/1 to hoist the Cup.

NHL Predictions for Nashville Predators
You know this team will be well-coached by Barry Trotz—the Preds were the least penalized team in the NHL, averaging just 8.7 minutes a night. And you know it will play plenty of close, low-scoring games. The best finish this team can probably hope for is third in the Central and sixth in the conference. Take the over 89.5 points but don’t expect that first playoff series win to come this season.

Nashville Predators Tickets : The Predators Announced That Shea Weber Would Become The Fifth Captain

The Nashville Predators are a professional ice hockey team based in Nashville, Tennessee. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). They play their home games at Bridgestone Arena, formerly known as Sommet Center, Gaylord Entertainment Center and Nashville Arena.

Hockey first appeared in Middle Tennessee in 1962 in the form of the Eastern Hockey League’s Dixie Flyers. One of the first tenants of the Municipal Auditorium, the Dixie Flyers played for nine seasons before folding in 1971. A decade later, Nashville Sounds owner Larry Schmittou made a second attempt at minor league hockey in Nashville when he brought the Nashville South Stars to town for the 1981-82 season.

While featuring Bob Suter (Miracle on Ice team member and father of Nashville Predator Ryan Suter) as well as several of the parent club Minnesota North Stars’ prospects, the franchise folded after just two seasons. In 1989, the ECHL Nashville Knights, perhaps the most popular of the minor league franchises, came to town. Coached by Predators assistant Peter Horachek, the Knights featured a potent offense that in 1994 set an ECHL record with 16 goals in one game.

The Predators picked up their first-ever away win in the postseason on April 16, when they beat the Blackhawks 4-1 at the United Center. The two clubs sparred back and forth, splitting both sets of home games to have the series level at 2-2 heading into the nationally televised Game 5.

Game 5, however, resulted in a loss. Forward Marian Hossa hit defender Dan Hamhuis from behind with 1:03 left in regulation, and the Predators holding a 4-3 advantage. On the ensuing power play, Chicago would get an odd-man rush, allowing Patrick Kane to score and send the game into overtime.

In overtime, Hossa scored at the end of his penalty to give the Blackhawks the win. The club lost Game 6 at the Bridgestone Arena by a score of 5-3, and the series by the tally of four games to two. The Predators finished with one of the worst power plays in the postseason, scoring just one goal and going 0-for-21 in the first five games.

David Poile traded captain Jason Arnott to New Jersey for winger Matt Halischuk and a draft pick, and acquired forward Sergei Kostitsyn from Montreal and former first round pick Ryan Parent from Philadelphia in exchange for impending free agents Dan Hamhuis, Dustin Boyd and Dan Ellis.

The club also signed 1999 second-round draft pick Jonas Andersson and Sodertalje forward Linus Klasen upon the opening of free agency. The club also confirmed the arrivals of Roman Josi, Anders Lindback and Atte Engren from overseas, and signed its first home-grown talent, Hobey Baker winner and Brentwood native Blake Geoffrion. On July 2, the Predators announced the signing of veteran forward Matthew Lombardi to a three-year, $ 10.5 million contract.

On July 9, the Predators announced that defenseman Shea Weber would become the club’s fifth captain. On September 19, it was announced that defenseman Ryan Suter and forward Steve Sullivan would serve as the team’s alternate captains.

The Predators traded forward Michael Santorelli to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a draft pick. The Predators also traded defenseman Ryan Parent and forward Jonas Andersson to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman Shane O’Brien and a forward prospect. The club also signed young defensemen Aaron Johnson, Brett Palin and Grant Lewis. The Predators also signed forward Jamie Lundmark.

On February 11, the Predators acquired 4-time 20-goal scoring, 11 year veteran, Mike Fisher from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a 2011 first round draft pick and a 2012 conditional pick. On February 25, the Predators traded defenseman Alexander Sulzer to the Florida Panthers for a conditional seventh round draft pick. They also placed foward Wade Belak on waivers.
