Arnott and Kariya were never in their prime with the Predators, were never considered a threat in the league and never led the team out of the first round... we like to reflect on those seasons like they were something truly special, and while the team's point total in the regular season was really good, they still weren't anything special compared to the true superstars and contenders of the league.

Really not trying to poo-poo on that era, those were some good times for the Predators. But the future is much brighter and one day we'll see the post-lockout seasons for what they were. Really nice seasons that provided that step up from being just an expansion team to finally being taken serious.
