Because it just froze over Scott Burnside said something positive about the Preds and Nashville.
The Nashville Predators continue to make themselves heard in the Western Conference playoff race, losing only three times in regulation over their past 16 games following Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over Phoenix. The Preds woke up Monday in eighth place. Off the ice, the team locked up leading scorer J.P. Dumont to a four-year deal before signing physical forward Jordin Tootoo to a two-year contract extension. There's still a lot of heavy lifting for GM David Poile as Martin Erat, Shea Weber and Ryan Suter can all become restricted free agents this summer and would likely attract offer sheets if they aren't locked up. Still, the Tootoo and Dumont signings are a positive sign for a team that's been battling uncertainty regarding its future.
