Honestly, I believe we can. We just need more consistency. We've beaten some of the best teams in the league, and even some of our losses we played remarkably well, both marks of a good young team.

Rinne going out hurt and some of our laspes in transition have hurt. The latter is correctable and lately it looks like we're doing a better job. We still breakout as good as any Predators team I've seen and we're cycling the puck as well as we ever have.

As far as speed goes, this might also be the fast team we've had. Bourque, Stalberg, Legwand, Cullen, Klein and even Jones can all fly. Even our grinders Hendricks and Nystrom have good speed.

There are going to be a lot of games were we the breaks are beating us, and finding consistency on offense is going to be a season long struggle, but yeah, I think we can sneak in, if we can continue to correct some issues.
