This is the 11th time the Predators, in their 20th season, have advanced to the playoffs. They advanced past the first round only four times (twice in the last two years) and still yet to win the Stanley Cup. The Predators won the Presidents’ Trophy with 117 points and the Central Division for the first time.

The Predators first line is controversially one of the best lines in the NHL. All three players, Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and Ryan Johansen had the highest points on the team last year (2017/18), aside from P.K Subban being in that mix. This is a good thing because all three of those players are signed for another four years. First off, Arvidsson, he might not be a household name and yet he’s one of the most dynamic wingers in the NHL. He’s got big-time skill, a big shot and all he has done anywhere he has gone for the past five years is put up impressive numbers. The other two-line mates, Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg, have both been consistent with their points in the past years.

Nashville has a wicked defense with names like Roman Josi, P.K Subban, Ryan Ellis, and Mattias Ekholm, all experienced defenseman. At the first line of defense is P.K Subban, 2018/19 was his second season in Nashville and one of the best of his NHL career. Subban ended the season with 59 points. Over the summer the only long-term resigning was Ellis’s deal and was worth $50 million and his new $6.25-million salary cap hit. This won’t take effect until 2019-2020 season since he had one year remaining in his previous contract.

The goaltending is something to watch out for this season because Pekka Rinne hasn’t been resigned and will potentially become a UFA at the end of the 2018/19 season. Perhaps the Nashville Predators are watching how backup goalie Juuse Saros performs because he might be able to take Rinne’s spot for a significantly cheaper price. Saros is also 12 years younger than Rinne, which is a vast difference. After winning a Vezina Trophy and potentially a Stanley Cup, Rinne should be worth a great deal on the market so what Predators get in return could be substantial.

With the Predators coming off a loss in the Western Conference Second Round to the Winnipeg Jets, minimal changes will be made. GM David Poile said forward Scott Hartnell will not be offered a contract for next season. Hartnell, 36, had 24 points in 62 games and played in four games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hartnell said that he would consider retirement this offseason. Another face that won’t be seen in the 2018/19 season is Mike Fisher, after the playoff run he announced his retirement. Predators are an all-around good team, but their defensive end is what stands out when comparing to other teams.
