From the Sun-Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov:
Thursday’s final was 5-1 but let’s not read too much into these two lopsided losses.
I spoke to Nashville’s Blake Geoffrion, the Hobey Baker Award winner from Wisconsin last year (...) and he told me his fellow prospects have played together in development camps for three years while the Panthers rookies basically met this week. So the Predators had the chemistry edge and experience edge as many of them have AHL and Olympics on their resumes.
Ugly results, but Fialkov's reasoning is sound. It was easily identifiable in game one: Preds had a visible comfort level not seen on Florida's bench.
