The next 10 points

So, we've got the Rangers tonight and then 2 games each with the BlueJackets and Blackhawks.

What's your prediction on how many points we get? How many will satisfy you?

I predict we'll get 6 points, and I'll be satisfied with that. I'd love to get 8 or more, but it'd be nearly impossible to win 4 or 5 against these teams.

I think we can get at least six. I'd be ok with that. Being satisfied is going to depend on other teams

with two games against the jackets 6 would be the minimum acceptable for this run.

we are getting into "fish or cut bait" time as far as catching Chicago, Detroit and St Louis...

would be z gret time to break franchise tradition... to my knowledge when we have been in a position to overtake detroit or chicago by beating them head to head, we never seem to be able to do it...

It's tough, but it's a good challenge. If we can stay in a play off spot after that I think we will be having an interesting late-Spring/early-Summer

Six seems reasonable to me. That even allows a chance for my Jackets to deliver another shocker.

(please let me dream, it's all I've got left...)

Survey says....8 points, plus a game against the Rangers that was in reality, a 1-goal game.

Wow....Preds get an A for that 5 game stretch.

Blues fan here in peace! I am a pretty big Predators fan also and love this horse race between the top four Central Division teams.

Congratulations on getting ahead of the Blackhawks in the standings at 50 games-played apiece.

This is quite exciting!! The next 10 points for ALL of us are extremely important.

Good luck rest of season.

Because now everyone on these boards (and most of the fan-base) thinks we should win 18 out of every 23 games (even though it occurred through the easiest part of our schedule). Everyone seems to be confident of this team, even though they are playing a little above their heads right now. When we go through the toughest part of our schedule (the ENTIRE month of February) and end up 5-6-2 on the other side (which I would be happy with, btw); everyone will start freaking out saying we should have made a trade a month ago, that we knew we needed scoring, that there is no way Weber and Suter sign here, and that Trotz should be fired.

Just wait...

Well, people keep saying that we should quit putting the likes of Detroit and Chicago in a different class. We're there and we can play with anyone.

If that's true, then we should be able to win at an equivalent pace. Maybe not 18 of 23, but still near the top of the division. Time will tell if it's true or not.

I'm not afraid of the rate we're winning, but, I am expecting the same backlash around here that you are once the team returns to a more reasonable winning percentage. December's scoring is much more realistically sustainable than the over three goals per game we've seen for January.

The team is doing exactly what it needs to do ... beat the lesser teams, put itself in position to win the games of comparable teams, and competing hard with the "better" teams.
