It has been a great season for the Nashville Predators so far. Like most sites, we made some bold predictions. How do things look so far?

What a season we are experiencing! As things sit now, the Nashville Predators are tied atop the Western Conference with 46 points. Of course, there are three other teams up there with them. If you were to ask many fans where the Predators would stand going into December back at the beginning of the season, many would likely say third or fourth.

Not a bad answer. And, while we want our team to dominate, we know the NHL is difficult. I guess being tied with three other teams makes the Predators first and fourth at the same time. So, if you thought the Predators would be leading the Western Conference or in fourth, you were right. Congrats.

A great aspect of this season is the amount of drama witnessed. How many games have the Predators led but saw their opponent make a strong comeback? Who can count the number of great saves made? Games are laced with tension, making this season one to remember.

Every season, sports news and blog sites make bold predictions about their teams. We are no different. Predictions are fun and provide great talking points at the proverbial watercooler. With the season’s first half winding down, now is a great time to see if we were on track with our predictions. 

So, how do are bold predictions look? In a word: good.
