I totally agree. I'm disappointed with Poile about that because he inadvertently created a buzz (I think he's honestly excited, but simply knows he can't announce the signing until tomorrow for whatever reason) and should have just kept his mouth shut...
When/if Jonas Andersson is the "unnamed" forward signed tomorrow it's going to not sit well with a lot of fans who will immediately think of the Jonas Andersson that went scoreless in 5 games with the Predators many moons ago.
It sets up a bad situation IMO because Andersson is going to need to prove A LOT to the fans once camp starts to justify being our signing on July 1st. It's not a fair situation for him to come into because he has matured since that time and really put it together the past three years in Europe.
All I hope for is that people give the guy a fair shake and evaluate him based on his play this time around, rather than hold his play from the pre-lockout era against him from the start...
