The past few seasons have featured some pretty good battles between the Predators and the Red Wings.

Ever notice how four of the five teams in the Central Division manage to work a color into the team name?  Blackhawks, Blue Jackets, Red Wings, Blues.  Get with it, Nashville.

Anyway, one of the toughest divisions in hockey looks a little lacking compared to previous years.

Chicago hopes to rebound two years removed from hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup.

The Blue Jackets finally dealt Rick Nash!

The Red Wings lost Nick Lidstrom. But let's face it. Detroit probably drafted a future legend in the seventh round this year, taking Swedish winger Rasmus Bodin.
