The Predators are the proud owners of a playoff spot less than a week before the NHL Trade Deadline. They’re the biggest wildcard, the biggest “what if?,” and the most-injured team out there. It feels silly saying “literally everyone is hurt,” but after sticking up for his teammates on Thursday, even Mathieu Olivier is hurt.
This means we could see more of David Farrance, Tyler Lewington, Michael McCarron, and possibly Rem Pitlick and Tanner Jeannot. Jeannot was just recalled from Chicago last night and it seems like the Wolves are mostly Carolina prospects + Phil Tomasino and Frederic Allard (wails).
