Nashville Predators v Los Angeles Kings

The new year is upon us and the Predators are looking a bit out of sorts. Though Ryan Ellis is back, Filip Forsberg is now on injured reserve and won’t be back for a while.

Also, the team is on a West Coast road trip. After an incredibly disappointing 0-1-1 start in Vegas and Arizona, this Saturday they will take on the Kings, which is why today’s guest is Eric K from Jewels From The Crown. Eric joined me to talk about the Kings, but also to discuss the Pacific Division overall. We cover a lot in this episode, including:

  • Anze Kopitar: the missing piece from last year?
  • Jonathan Quick: MVP?
  • The Kings are drafting Swedes now and it’s working (surprise, surprise)
  • How strangely similar the Preds and Kings are in a lot of ways
  • Possible Kings-Preds matchup in the playoffs?
  • Vegas and how we’ve come through the other side and now we want them to fail
  • We both hate the Ducks (surprise, surprise)
  • #LOilers

It was a fun chat, you should give a listen.
