Possible Round 1 Matchups

Assuming that the Predators finshed the year somewhere in the 5-8 positions in the Western Conference, which team would you be the most comfortable playing? If the season ended today, the top 4 would look like this: Vancouver, Detroit, San Jose, Chicago. The Predators have already played 3 out of those 4 teams in the playoffs before.

Which team would you be most comfortable playing? As of right now, the Predators are an impressive 10-6 against those four teams. The Predators and Canucks have played three games so far this season, with the Preds winning two. The Predators have beaten the Red Wings three out of the four times they've played so far this year. The Preds have beaten the Sharks two out of three times so far this year, and the Preds have split the series with Chicago at three games apiece.

Personally, I'd love to see us draw somebody in our division like Detroit or Chicago. We're very familiar with how they play and we'd have a huge chip on our shoulder against either one of them, especially Chicago. Who would you prefer to play?


  1. Chicago, with Detroit and Vancouver following them. I dont think we match up well enough physically with SJ.

    I'm also still pissed at last year's terrible officiating against the Hawks.

  2. Personally, I don't see the Sharks maintaining their current pace. Actually, I think the Ducks are the better team. To make it past the first round, the Preds need to play the Wings, which I think we can beat this year, or the Hawks.

    I would pick the Wings. I wouldn't care if lost in the second round if I knew we sent the Wings home before us.

  3. I would absolutely love to have another shot at Chicago or Detroit. I think we'd have an excellent chance of taking them out.
