Sunday's Dump & Chase: Dreaming of Stanley

New, comments

In case you haven't checked the standings, your Nashville Predators have the best record in the entire NHL. First (and only) team with 60 points, 4 points up on Chicago with a game in hand. Sure, we're "only" at the halfway point, and there's a lot of hockey to be played, but is this thing really happening this year? I'm predicting yes...and should the Cup presentation happen in Nashville, the commish will NOT be booed for like the first time in forever. Register your own votes in the poll after the links...
