The offense has always been a problem since the Predators have been in existance and this half season it finally fell apart because the talent eroded. Spaling didn't develop into a top 6 and most of the team regressed drastically and he said we aren't that far off..
rinne played hurt, if you werent paying attention... and yet still managed to have 5 shutouts (tied for league lead)... he carried us for half the season before the injury took its toll.

Weber got off to a slow start but after the first ten games he was his old self... the problem was all the good supporting cast started falling off and eventually we got below critical mass for a competitive NHL franchise
