Getting ready now for Nashville/Anaheim game 2. I'd like to see Nashville win again but my feeling is that Anaheim will even the series.

I like the Predators but I don't like the location where they play, I think Nashville shouldn't have a pro hockey team. They might have fan support but I still think Nashville doesn't belong in the NHL. I also think Carolina doesn't belong in the NHL. Same thing with the states of Florida, Texas, and Arizona. None of these southern states belong in the NHL. The only southern location that made sense was Atlanta, it was tried there twice and failed both times, so go figure. The California teams are OK except I would like to see Anaheim relocated at some point in the future.

Take these NHL southern located teams and move them to northern locations, put a few more teams in Canada too. Quebec needs another shot at NHL hockey. How about having a team in Seattle? Would be a good rival for Vancouver. Next season there will be a team in Las Vegas, I don't know how that's going to work, I would rather they put a team in Utah/Salt Lake City, would be a good rival for Colorado, Las Vegas sounds like a failing location to me. I think the NFL Raiders will fail in Las Vegas too after they move there.

I think Seattle will get an NHL team eventually - they have a lot of hockey fans there, many actually travel to see Canucks games - but it hinges on what happens with their hunt for an NBA team; the city does NOT want to pay for a new arena, any potential ownership group wants the city to pay for it, and either way it is contingent on having an NBA team as a long-term tenant, and the NBA won't award them a franchise until they have a new arena deal in place. Catch-22, with any chance of getting a hockey team just riding on the coattails of that mess - but I still think it will happen eventually.

Quebec City stands a good chance of getting a team - but I think it is going to take a few more years; Bettman and Co don't want to risk another failure in a smaller city, even if the numbers do make sense.

..as for the Southern state teams - most of them are actually doing OK, with the exception of the Coyotes, and even though they've had numerous opportunities to move the team to another city and it has cost the league a lot just to get it stable again they seem intent on keeping the team there for some strange reason. I think admitting it was a failure will hurt the league's reputation (and devalue other potential expansions) and they want the 500 million expansion fee rather than a smaller relocation fee.

I also think Kansas City should have a hockey team again, even using the name they used between 1974 and 1976...The Kansas City Scouts....

Nice redirect by Subban in OT last night. Unfortunately though, for the wrong team

Nashville gets the win in a close and very rough game - lot of players out injured now, hard to predict what happens next

Preds are one win away from the finals, will see if they can get there. Has an 8th seeded team ever played in the finals before?

2012 LA Kings won the Cup as the 8th seed

OK thanks for the info, this was 5 years ago but I remember now.

Kings won the cup that year finishing with 95 points, so obviously Nashville as an 8 seed finishing with 94 points could do it too. Take away 10 points and have an 8 seed team with 84 points go on to win the cup which is basically a .500 team and that would be pretty much a surprise.

The Blackhawks were #1 seed in the West this year with 109 points, Nashville was #8 with 94 points, that's a 15 point spread which isn't really all that much so looking at it that way it's not really all that surprising that Nashville is one win away from the finals.

I remember the KC Scouts, dreadful team but they wore some cool looking uniforms. Their defense wasn't all that bad but aside from their #1 line their offense was woeful to say the least. Wilf Paiement was one of their better players. Denis Herron was a pretty good goalie too. I was really into hockey during that mid 1970's era, I was a Seals fan and followed that team close until they relocated to Cleveland and became the Barons.

Well it looks like it's all over for Ottawa unless they have a big answer for Pittsburgh in the next game because the 7-0 blowout today was embarrassing. Several lapses on defense today for Ottawa, either that or maybe the Pens were just too quick for them.
