Sunday's Dump & Chase: Preds Flushing Another Season Down The Toilet

New, comments

Take a look at the standings. It's…not good. The West is very strong this year, and we know a good team or two could miss the playoffs. But we're not one of those. All those free-agent signings that were supposed to lead to wins and a return to "Predator Hockey", well, one out of two ain't bad, right? We're at the point where we need a real hot streak or multiple teams ahead of us to collapse. In another month, we're gonna need both.
