Preds start the season with a "W"

Recommended Posts

They looked good against the Rangers and kept the pressure on most of the game. Forsberg's goal was a wicked wrister. I think barring injury he's going to have a monster year. Rinne was sharp. All the pieces are there for another run.

They're gonna lose to the Islanders tomorrow in Brooklyn!

Barry tops Lavi? Stanley Cup odds for the Preds are +1100 and Islanders are +10000. I guess we'll see.

They barely won 4-3, obviously the Preds are the better team but the Islanders aren't all that bad either.

They gave up a goal at the end of the game when it was 6 on 5. The Preds played pretty well as a whole. 2 road wins is a good way to start things rolling.

All about getting hot at the right time....

 

All that matters is if Rinne is on his A game come playoff time. 

This.

 

They have a great team and are a lock for playoffs, but actually making noise in NHL playoffs much much more often than not requires the goaltending to be on point. 7 game series are (especially multiple of them) rarely decided by offense alone. I honestly think a goalie matters more to their team than a QB does to theirs.

If you had to rank your confidence the Preds will reach the Final again vs what it was last year at this time, where would you put it?

Pretty much the same or perhaps a little higher expectations. The year they got to the finals they got hot after the all star break. Last year's team was consistently good all season but ran into a hot team (Winnipeg) in the playoffs. We have the same pieces with an upgrade or two this year and the team is battle tested and knows what it takes to get there. Vegas thinks so too.

Every sport besides a Lebron led basketball team or a Tom Brady led football team is all built on getting hot. Expectations are always going to be high but until about a month or two before the playoffs start, you can't make any real guess about the Stanley Cup.

 

The Milwaukee Brewers were pretty damn mediocre all season until the all-star break and especially the past month. There sure as hell are much better teams who's season is over while the Brewers are a few wins away from the World Series.

Lmao. Bitch about me bringning ip Lonzo in a football thread but you bring basketball and football players and a baseball team into a hockey convo. God damn boy, you hit the trifecta!!

 

Hypocritical much?

 

Look at me, I'm grandstanding!!!!

 

Lmao

 

PS, I know you did it to prove a point. As did I. So don't talk down to me for doing it if you're going to do the same.

I was grandstanding about the Brewers (a team that no one here follows), that was pretty clear

 

When did I act like I wasn't doing that?

You missed the sarcasm which was me saying I was grandstanding by calling you out on your hypocrisy of using players/teams from other sports to make a point in a thread about a completely different sport.

 

Didn't say you were. Didnt even take it that you were.

The one difference being the Brewers may actually get to the World Series while the Lakers, even with LBJ, won't get close to the NBA Finals.
