SBNation Reacts: Is This Predators Team a Contender?

The fanbase is split.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Predators fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

As the NHL prepares to restart the 2020 season, fans have reassessed where they think their favorite team stands.

In the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, NHL fans were asked if they believe their favorite team is a serious championship contender. Or, if their team is no longer playing, who that fanbase will turn to now.

Despite holding the sixth-best record in the Western Conference, Nashville fans aren’t overly confident in the team. Under 50 percent of fans believe the Predators have a serious shot at the Stanley Cup.

The Predators return to action Sunday for their qualifying round series against the Arizona Coyotes.

There isn’t much of a silver lining for fans if things go wrong. According to the survey, only 23% of fans would want their team to tank for an opportunity to draft Alexis Lafrenière.
