You've got them in every sport, the teams who never win a championship but like to celebrate whatever accomplishments they can.
Raising banners for division titles, conference championships, etc, and now the Nashville Predators have joined that group.
The Preds and Chicago Blackhawks have a rivalry that continues growing and while the Preds might have eliminated the Hawks last time around in the playoffs, let's take a second to chuckle at the Preds.
On Tuesday night during the Preds home opener, the team decided to raise a "Western Conference Champions" banner to the rafters. While you could say the Preds haven't had anything to raise in their history, lots of fans and media members across the league enjoyed a good laugh believing it's celebrating being "almost good enough to win".
