Scott Hannan signed for $1 million. Nearly a million less than Greg Zanon. I'm no Hannan fan, and have said as much many times, but I'll take him over The Beard any day.

Never said there were great options, but really? Greg Zanon was the best Sherman could do!?
Hannan would be just as useless, he's like a poor version of Hejda. And as a bottom pairing guy the difference between him and Zanon is pointless. Our D desperately needs an EJ Partner, but we couldn't get one since Suter and Garrison had other plans. Outside of an EJ partner our D doesn't need much

Partner - EJ
Hejda - Barrie
Wilson - SOB/ROB/Zanon/Hunwicles

Would the D really look much better if it where Hannan out there with Wilson? No, the only way to seriously improve our D was to add legit top 4 guys other than EJ and Hejda, now Barrie has shown to be one, but there wasn't a top pairing guy available to us.
