Of course we don't see it that way, as 90 points would have got us in, and the Preds got 100 points. That's not sneaking in the back door, that's kicking the front door in.

Phoenix is a better national market probably. Lots of winter travelers who may also watch them from hockey areas around the country. Probably had a bigger national fan base from the former Gretzky connection as well. Nobody knows Nashville until the Preds come to town and beat them. The next step is to do that in the playoffs.
