in some ways,i think the preds are more popular down in huntsville than in nashville, sadly. i used to always see tons of preds gear on people down there.
I don't know about that....really, if you will just go around this town (Nashville) and look at the number of Predator stickers on cars, it's remarkable. I just wish they would all show up at the games.
8. Postseason for the Preds: Nashville played its sixth NHL season last year and had the lowest payroll in the league and one of its weakest attendance totals, but allowed nothing to stand in its drive a debut playoff appearance. After a sputtering start, the Predators hit stride in late November and remained remarkably consistent for a team built largely with castoffs and hopefuls. A strong season by goaltender Tomas Vokoun was critical, but Nashville's work ethic and refusal to be intimidated by more talented teams played big dividends and nearly led the Predators to an upset victory over the Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs.
