Stop the Penalties!

This penalty debacle is getting out of control. Nothing is more frustrating than watching a supremely talented team waste it by constantly putting themselves at a disadvantage. Their most recent loss to the Stars was the latest example of the Predators making it harder on themselves than it has to be.

What’s scary is the Predators are managing to win games despite the lack of discipline. Just look at this ugly stat that deserves a lump of coal, from Adam Vingan:

Next: The Annual Airing of Grievances

I’m a firm believer that if the Nashville Predators decrease the bad penalties they’re taking, they’ll start winning games by bigger margins. If this Christmas wish comes true, all of the others will have a better chance of happening. Find some team discipline for Christmas and this team will be just fine and have a great chance to make a return trip to the Stanley Cup.
