November is here and it's still 80 degrees outside. What. Why.
Nashville Predators News
Perspective on the Predators Slow Start
I buy the locker room and possession explanations, but this "tough schedule" explanation never sticks with me. Any NHL team should be able to play the schedule they have without the schedule itself being a factor.

A good run down of all the defensive happenings (and non happenings) up in Detroit.
Three Life Lessons Carey Price Has Taught Us
