He won't come close to replacing Suter, but it's a great signing by the Predators. Hannan's become slower and isn't getting any younger but is still solid on the defensive side, although he doesn't bring much of an offensive game at all. Still, aside from Weber and Gill, that was a young blue line before this signing. With signing Hannan, he brings a lot more experience which will prove to be very useful.

From the article on NHL.com:

Quote:
With the signing, the Predators now have two defensemen with more than 800 games of NHL experience for the first time in franchise history -- Hal Gill is tops on the roster with 1,070.
I like this signing a lot. I figured he'd get around the same as last year and he did, exactly. Solid price for one of the better defensemen still out there. He should have been signed sooner. Great call by Wheatley too.
