The Nashville Predators have never had trouble with having high quality goaltending over their two decades of existence. It’s an area we’ve always been able to rely upon.
This past season has been the most troubling season in net that I can remember, going all the way back to the early years of the franchise when just making the playoffs was a victory in itself.
There were many reasons for this that went way beyond whoever was lining up between the pipes. Bad defense, a midseason coaching change and a penalty kill that was ranked near the bottom for most of the season.
