Thursday's Dump & Chase: Temperature Check

Here we are, 30 games in, still hanging in there at 3rd in the Central. Sure, the fellas have slipped a touch in the standings, but that's mostly due to a slightly more awesome streak by the Hawks than anything the Preds have done badly. Of course the power play numbers are still a but, um, weak, but they've gotten a couple recently so maybe it's about to regress from its awfulness? So overall, how are you feeling about the team so far? 30 games ago, did you think we'd be right about here, better, or worse? I've predicted Stanley Cup so I know I'm covered, but what about you guys?
