The good news from the Predators is that we have lots of different people contributing. When one player is cold, another can score. Teams with a few elite scorers that slump are more susceptible to hitting rock bottom when coldness or injuries strike. Case in point: Edmonton (though their problems are more than just offensive).
That's why I've kept Center Ice even though there are now (yes!) only a handful of Preds games that aren't broadcast by FSN - like last night's game. I try to watch 4 or 5 non-Preds games every week, often Pacific/Northwest division because they're on late. You learn a whole lot about the game, and it helps to keep our guys in perspective.
