I would be interested to hear what was said as well.
He didn't say much - just that he was "meh" on the FA signings when we needed a bigger name. When asked how we were supposed to get bigger names here, like with Briere and Vinny, when they decline - he argued that Nashville still has a stigma of a bleh hockey town, even though that's unfair. When then asked if it was better to not overpay than sell the farm for FAs, he didn't really have an answer. He was pretty respectful and didn't come off as rude, while still defending his article, but you could tell he didn't really have much substance for how he perceived our team's shortcomings and after he left the call, the panel kinda debated/disagreed with a lot of stuff he said. Wasn't a waste of an interview by any means, but it all basically sounded like a guy who didn't personally like the FA moves we made, couldn't overly explain why, and couldn't offer many other solutions given the situation we were in.
