Predators Have an Expansion Draft Dilemma With Viktor Arvidsson

However, it is now time for the franchise to look forward again, and that starts with a critical offseason that will dictate the direction the team takes for the years to come.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Set to miss Thursday's clash

Arvidsson (upper body) is slated to miss Thursday's Game 6 against Carolina. Arvidsson is expected to be on the shelf for his fourth straight outing after sustaining an upper-body injury in Game 2. Without the winger in the lineup, Matt Duchene has been moved into a first-line role while Eeli Tolvanen remains outside the top-six.
