So I’ve showed you my personal predictions on how I think the conferences will unfold, so why not bring in my writers and contributors and get their look? We’ve grabbed Jeremy, James, Brandon, and great new guy Dan to give us their divisional break downs, conference champs, and Cup winners (including mine) for the 2013 season.

While the writers at The Predatorial are unanimous in our selection for the Northwest Division, that’s about as unanimous as it gets. Here’s how each writer thinks the Predators will finish:
Kristopher Martel – 2nd in the division, 4th overall, losing in the conference finals to Los Angeles
Jeremy Sargent – Didn’t rank their playoff spot but noted they would lose in the conference finals to Vancouver in 6 games
James Nelson – Not qualifying for the playoffs, 11th overall in the conference
Brandon Felder - 3rd in Central behind Chicago and St. Louis. 9th in West behind Minnesota getting the last playoff spot.
Dan Bradley – Didn’t rank their playoff spot but noted the Predators would be wiped up by Los Angeles in the second or third round.
There you go! Feel free to let loose on everyone for their rankings
