Monday's Dump & Chase: 40 is the New 28

New, comments

1999, hope and uncertainty was in the air along with the name of a new sports team in Nashville. That inaugural season and the next, the Nashville Predators collected 28 wins and finished last in the Division. Fast-forward, #Cal9er snuck those same Predators past Buffalo to win numero FORTY, first place, all alone. Twenty-eight wins used to be the mile marker, the goal to be surpassed. This season has elevated those goals to new and previously unimaginable heights. This isnt a fluke, this season could be the mark that all future teams will be striving to surpass. Long live Southern Hockey.
