Nashville Predators: Too Much of a Good Thing in the Crease?
There’s an old saying that too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Is that the case with the Nashville Predators current situation at the goaltender position?
A goalie can either make or break your team. Granted you have to score goals in order to ultimately win, but if you look at teams like the Edmonton Oilers, they have more firepower on their top line than some teams have in an entire roster, however, have struggled to make a deep run in the playoffs due to mediocre goaltending.
The Predators have had just the opposite of this happen. They have typically had phenomenal goaltending in the likes of Pekka Rinne, Tomas Vokoun, and Chris Mason, to name a few. The Predators have always had strong crease protection but have lacked in goal scoring.
Currently, Juuse Saros is doing more of the same for this franchise. Stellar goaltending is having to carry the heavy load.
Let’s take a look at goalies present and goalies of the future of the Nashville Predators franchise.
