After winning their first playoff series in franchise history, the Predators lost big in free agency when they had to watch Ryan Suter sign on with the Minnesota Wild. But it could have been worse.

Today’s continuing look at 30 teams in 30 days analyzes the Nashville Predators and explains why THN picked them to claim the final playoff spot in the West this season.
