Of the 8 playoff teams from last year, you can’t really point to any who took a step back.  If the Predators are going to bust into that group it is going to be earned, and it will not be handed to them. Its not going to be easy and despite the fact they have a world class blueliner in Shea Weber and a couple of defensemen on the cusp in Seth Jones and Roman Josi, I am not sure they have upgraded enough up front to make it happen.
