The Preds need to make the playoffs this year pretty badly, and if they do that, they need to build on that success. They cannot afford to go back to being a bottom feeder at all.

The Preds are one of those teams watching the CBA negotiations closer than anyone right now.
The Preds are decent upfront but lack bad on the defense. They have a couple good defensemen but after that they really drop off. I would think they would pick a few high defensemen this draft coming up. They are also relying on 1 goalie to keep them in the race. It has shown lately that when Voukon plays bad, the Preds lose. They need better goaltending depth as well.
