Poile has lost his mind.

maplepred 07-05-2013 02:44 PM

Career best is 21 points in NHL and he is over 30.

Another one bites the dust!
Poile is really tearing it up and spending money so smart.

Enoch 07-05-2013 02:46 PM

I mean. Let us be honest. This is a terrible deal. I would much rather resurrect Vladimir Orszagh.

I've been pretty much happy with the signings thus far and have kept my faith in Poile, but I draw the line here. This deal is positively cringe-worthy.

All your vanilla are belong to us.

Machinehead 07-05-2013 02:52 PM

Wrong forum.

Drake744 07-05-2013 02:52 PM

This is absolutely ****** hilarious

braindead 07-05-2013 02:56 PM

I would have guess Nystrom was a 2 year $1.2M player max. With the cap going down and lesser players getting squeezed, this is nuts. This is like Washington's Joel Ward contract. Really nuts IMO.

Preds Partisan 07-05-2013 03:01 PM

This sounds like something you would read in "The Onion".

utkpred 07-05-2013 03:08 PM

These players are all ecstatic to be in Nashville because they all got grossly over-paid. Something doesn't add up.

Drake744 07-05-2013 03:09 PM

I guarantee one of Hendricks, Cullen, or Nystrom lands an injury that costs them most of the year. It'll happen. Because **** us, that's why.

NoNecksCurse 07-05-2013 03:12 PM

i want to cry

hipcheck85 07-05-2013 03:35 PM

I know I'm in the minority here and I agree the $ is too much but I like Nystrom as a player and I'm glad he is a Pred. SON OF BOBBY NYSTROM will lead us to the CUP!!!

I actually like the players we got as well. I'm just totally blown away by the term and dollars given out to get them.

preds1 07-05-2013 03:41 PM

Meh, this wouldn't bother me as much if Poile already addressed our actual need.
Should be interesting with the new Dallas rivalry tho.

kypredsfan 07-05-2013 04:46 PM

Why do people complain about money on here? It's not my money. We already know Poile went after Briere and Seguin. Nystrom will get us tough to play against. I like it.

David Poile's new intro

triggrman 07-05-2013 04:57 PM

You always over pay for free agents.

He's better than Yip

I like how our tougher players can also play hockey.

PredsFanFromla 07-05-2013 09:01 PM

This Nystrom guy is very funny:Look what he posted on twitter

This is the only contract Poile gave out when I think he was literally on crack. To be honest I think he should be trotted out in front of the Bridgestone and fans should be able to shoot pucks at him for this deal. Yes, I'm drunk but yes Poile is still a ****ing idiot for this deal. Like can anyone possibly understand why this happened. Nystrom is decent bottom sixer, but 4 years? 3 million his last two year. LOL. Paul Gausatd? Let's go ahead and pay him 3 mill a year too because **** it that's why. Give the grinders all dese money. WHooooooooo. All the other deals I don't mind to be honest. But this one? **** me Poile. **** me

SiegeDallas 07-06-2013 03:06 AM

Great signing. Wish Dallas signed him for more.

Predsrule 07-06-2013 09:29 AM

Nystrom is a good 3rd line player who can put up 15 goals brings very good d and great guy in the locker room from what i read.. love the signing if it was for 1.8 even.. he is 400k over paid at best imo.. still not the worse signing of the day..

1.85 was Hendricks. This scrub nystrom is getting 2 million first two years, then 3 million last two years of four hear deal. Keep in mind nystrom has been on waivers twice in last year or so. Just garbage.

And nystrom isn't putting up fifteen goals, he's done it a total of once his entire career.
