A Landlubber’s Guide to the Nashville Predators

Throughout the season, we’ll release Landlubber’s Guides designed with the new fan in mind. This includes basic need-to-know info for you to absorb before you watch Kraken games and highlights.

Today, we’re talking about the Nashville Predators.

Are they any good?

Well… they used to be. They made it to the Stanley Cup Final in the 2016-2017 season for the first time in franchise history. It was really exciting and the whole city rallied behind them! But they haven’t really been able to recreate that success since.

This season the Preds are kind of at a crossroads. The GM announced that they’re in a “competitive rebuild” so who knows what that means for this year. They could be good! They could shift into full rebuild mode! Only time will tell.

Who should I look out for?

Any Seattle ties?
