Phoenix's PK was awful, one of the worst in the legue. Fiddler was on Nashville's top unit, which helped make Nashville's PK top ten in the league. Phoenix's F/O% was awful, maybe the worst in the league. Fiddlers F/O% has been over 50% the last four years. If Nashville was fine with 850K per for a guy they already have plenty of in Nichol and Smithson, I don't really see how 1.1M per from Phoenix, a team that needs more of what he brings, is all that much of an overpayment. That said, with all of the forwards we already have, I take this signing to mean that Phoenix now expects Matthew Lombardi to be our number one center, Martin Hanzal to be our second line center, Vernon Fiddler to be our shut-down center, and Kyle Turris to fit in somewhere.

In other words, the Coyotes are totally ****ed.

LWs: Doan, Upshall, Prucha, Tikhonov, Dawes, Fedoruk, Winnik
Cs: Lombardi, Hanzal, Fiddler, Turris
RWs: Mueller, Boedker, Lisin
