In the spirit of March Madness, On The Forecheck brings you our very own version of the NCAA Tournament. I've seeded some current Predators 1-16 based on statistics and general popularity with the fans this season and organized them into a March Madness-style bracket where you'll vote for your favorite Pred!

Instructions

In the comments section I'll list each matchup, and under that will put two choices. Recommend the comment of your choice for each matchup and the comment with the most recs will advance to the next round. Voting will end at noon on Sunday.

Follow after the jump for the list of match-ups and a little "bracketology."

Matchups

1. Shea Weber vs 16. Kevin Klein

8. Sergei Kostitsyn vs 9. Steve Sullivan

 

5. Patric Hornqvist vs 12. Joel Ward

4. Martin Erat vs 13. Mike Fisher

 

6. David Legwand vs 11. Jordin Tootoo

3. Ryan Suter vs 14. J.P. Dumont

 

7. Colin Wilson vs 10. Marcel Goc

2. Pekka Rinne vs 15. Cody Franson

 

Totals by position:

Goaltenders - 1

Defensemen- 4

Forwards- 11

 

Last 4 in:

Klein, Franson, Dumont, Fisher

Last 4 out:

Spaling, Smithson, O'Reilly, O'Brien

Possible upsets

I'm lookin' at the 6/11 matchup and think Tootoo could pull the upset there. Should be a good matchup, with two classic Preds going head-to-head. I could also see Steve Sullivan beating out Kostitsyn in the 8/9 game.

Check back on Monday for the results, and the bracket for the "Elite Eight."
