(THW) Nashville's Free Agent Flops

Hey guys, I'm The Hockey Writers' new Predators' contributor. I know this isn't the most positive article to make introductions with, but I'm really down on the four signings Nashville made, especially in the context of the grinder overload.

If there's anything specific you guys want to see, shoot me a PM or something.

The spending spree hit the Music City as hard as anywhere else in the league, as David Poile used his extra negotiating time to add four new contracts to the fold, signing free agent forwards Viktor Stalberg, Matt Cullen, Eric Nystrom and Matt Hendricks. Unfortunately for the Predators however, each of these transactions were among the lowest-value signings on the day, and have a real chance of challenging Paul Gaustad for the worst bang-per-buck on the roster. Either Poille couldn’t attract any marquee free agents and had to settle for the pu pu platter, or he’s grabbing random bodies to plug holes before wildly trading from the roster. Terrifyingly, he could also be really high on his current forward crop, which would explain adding such specialized role player types.

Anyway, without further ado, let’s examine these varying degrees of bad.
