Predators see youthful roster as reason for hope, motivation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Nothing takes away the joy of a great regular season quicker than losing early in the playoffs. The Nashville Predators will try and use the disappointment of being ousted in the first-round to drive them during this offseason.

"There is a lot of positives, and that's great," Weber said Monday. "Now we can build off of that. ... We need to be motivated to be even better. The young guys that were great can improve that much more, and the older guys that had good years as well we can still keep getting better and lead by example."

The Predators rebounded after missing the playoffs the past two years by going 47-25-10 with 104 points in coach Peter Laviolette's first season. They ranked either first or second in the Western Conference between Jan. 4 and March 13.
