Training camp is one week in for the Nashville Predators, and there’s less than two weeks left before the qualifying round starts against the Arizona Coyotes.

The intensity has been high for the Nashville Predators so far in training camp, and Head Coach John Hynes is getting the players into game-like situations to get back into hockey shape.

Playoff hockey is always hard to predict, which is what makes it so fun to watch. But this season, more so than ever, it’s going to be unpredictable. There’s no way to know just how prepared the Predators are until they actually get on the ice and the puck is dropped officially.

However, you can’t help but be a little excited and optimistic about what’s happened in training camp so far. All of the core players have been there and look healthy and refreshed, and players also look hungry to live up to preseason expectations that weren’t exactly met in the regular season.

A scrimmage has already happened within the team, and Roman Josi stole the show there with this amazing goal, courtesy of Shaun Smith of On the Forecheck:

With that glorious goal that reminds us all just how spectacular Josi is, let’s get to what has really stood out so far in this unprecedented postseason training camp.
