It’s been a turbulent offseason for the Nashville Predators, and the question begs to if they’ve gotten better or worse. Maybe the outlook hasn’t changed at all.
The fact of the matter is the Nashville Predators had their work cut out for them this offseason after getting ousted by the Arizona Coyotes in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
They’ve been busy this offseason, as expected, and now we have to wonder if they’ve actually improved. Are they going to keep up their postseason trend or are we destined for a season where they don’t even qualify for the playoffs?
Quite frankly, they technically didn’t qualify for this past season’s playoffs after being eliminated in a four-game qualifying round. No one will ever know if they would’ve qualified for the normal 16-team playoff field in a 82-game season, but you can’t dispute that they fell way short of expectations.
Time to break down all of the free agent additions for a Predators team that will look very different on opening night of next season. If another move is made, we’ll update this list.
