All things considered, we have to be pretty happy about how the Nashville Predators have started. But there are some questions that have us wondering.
With a 6-3-1 record to open the 2019-20 season, the Nashville Predators seem to be primed for another playoff appearance and a run at another division title. It would be their sixth-straight playoff appearance and third-straight division title if they can pull off those feats.
But we know going to the playoffs and finishing first in the division isn’t the ultimate goal nor do they meet the expectations most of us have for this team. We expect more from this talent-rich roster. They can’t waste all of this talent with early playoff exits like they have the last two seasons.
As for this current season, the Predators have some clear strengths. Their offense is a force to be reckoned with, and they’re rock solid in goal with Pekka Rinne and, hopefully, Juuse Saros. Here’s our five most burning questions we have with the regular season being just three weeks old.
