Silver Nuggets: Pre-season predictions on their way

It's that time of year, folks: The time when pundits across the league are formulating their well-researched predictions and coming up with ideas of how the upcoming season might shake out. It's not going to be easy for optimistic Sens fans out there, but fear not: These predictions are rarely right, anyway. And even if they are right, and the Sens finish at or near the bottom of the standings, it's all part of the plan, anyway.
