Let’s Go Dutch On ‘Em

Another gameday means another prediction as part of the Ottawa Citizen’s panel. Here’s what I had to say…

Senators 4, Predators 2

“If it bleeds, we can kill it.” ~ Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from the movie Predator)

It’s tough to pick against the Senators when the Predators organization is bleeding profusely.

Heading into action last night’s action against the Bruins, the Preds owned a 2-4-1 record — Good for second worst record in the Western Conference. Combine an underachieving roster with some average goaltending and it’s a recipe for disaster. Even Sens fans who are concerned with Erik Karlsson’s defensive shortcomings, can appreciate the fact that he doesn’t share Hamhuis or Klein’s plus/minus of -7. Have I even mentioned that Jason Arnott has a significant arm injury that will keep him out of action?
