How would the Nashville Predators fare in the Olympics?

I'll admit right up-front that I am an absolute sucker for the Olympics. I can get cynical about college or professional sports at times, and I know some of you groan every time I bring the cold light of statistical analysis to the game of hockey, but when it come to the Olympics, it's a fortnight of pure sports-viewing statisfaction. I love the ceremony, the competition, the diversity of the athletes, the whole bit. I just wish I could take time off work to watch it full-time.

In a nod to J.R.R. Tolkien, I'll offer up my own suggestion for a slogan for these London Games:

Five Rings to rule them all, Five Rings to find them,

Five Rings to bring them all and in competition bind them

In the City of London where the medals lie.

So here's a topic for conversation, Preds fans - how might various members of the Nashville Predators, or other NHL stars fare in various Olympics events?
