Look at it this way - you got Hannan on a deal that pays him less than what the Canucks pay Andrew Alberts.

Excuse me while I go cry.

Nice signing for you guys.

Gill can keep the low slot cleared and really that's all I'm talking about. You don't see many checks down-low, we have a guy on each pairing that can do the dirty work.

Came up with the Sharks, went to the Avs in 2007, then the Caps and Flames... definitely no cup.

I don't think he is a needs to play 20+ mins a night or we are in trouble. Good signing, but you have to remember there is a reason why he is signing on for a million bucks.

Like this signing. Creates some depth and competition. 1m is a great price. Expectations shouldn't be high for him, but he'll eat some minutes.

I agree. I wouldn't be shocked if this is a depth move and we're not done looking at D-men yet.

Question is, are Philly, Nashville, and other teams in 'Screw Detroit' mode? If Philly get's J-Bo and Doan stays in Phoenix, who does Detroit sign or trade for?

Saw this posted by Fugu in the DRW forum. From KuklasKorner:

Quote:
....With the Hannan signing, the Predators now have two defensemen with more than 800 games of NHL experience for the first time in franchise history (Hannan, 908gp; Hal Gill, 1,070gp). Both veterans – in addition to top-four blueliner Kevin Klein – also perennially rank among the League leaders in average penalty kill time on ice and blocked shots.
That's nice to see.

If adding a 5th-6th string defensemen is enough to make you love a GM...I don't know what to say.

Oh come now.. He likes blocks... Loves Poile....

Its all good..

And I like this signing though I would have preferrred J-Bo.. But I guess the price and salary for him are probably a little high

It isn't like Hannah is the guy we were waiting to sign so that we can go win a Cup. We needed a vet, and we got one.
You mean Hannan haha

Thrilled with this signing He gives us what we need for cheap. I'd rather do this than have to sign Carlo to a 3 year, 4 mil deal or something. This give us D pairings of:

Weber-Josi
Klein-Hannan (very good shutdown pairing)
Ellis-Gill
Blum-Ekholm
Bartley-Jarvinen

PK: Weber-Hannan/Gill, Klein-Hannan/Gill

PP: Weber-Josi, Ellis-Klein/F moved to point

We have 10 Dman that can likely play in the NHL (I hope Blum and Bartley both get the chance this year). Love it.

Not sure how I feel about this move. I like Hannan and all, but I would have preferred a reliable 2nd pairing guy, rather than a 3rd pairing guy who can only fill in on the 2nd pairing in a pinch. Maybe we're not done
