On the eve of the playoffs, the Nashville Predators have earned an accolade. BMO Capital Markets' Doug Porter analyzed the return-on-investment for each of the NHL's 30 clubs, determining which earned the most points per million spent in payroll.

Number one?

The Nashville Predators are the Hockey Cents champions this year. Nashville earned more than two points for every million spent, finishing with more than 100 points, even with one of the lowest outlays in the league. Nashville made it to the Conference semi-finals last year, and ended the regular season on a strong note.

The Preds finished the season with a salary cap number of roughly $51.6 million, an actual salary outlay of $54 million and with a record of 48-26-8, good for 104 points, fourth place in the Western Conference, earning home-ice advantage for the first time.
