Short term deal and dirt cheap for a legit top 6 C. Yeah he's an idiot but there's really no risk in contractual terms.

Jarnkrok can and has played right wing before BTW.

I feel a trade comin'.

As for Ribeiro, I hope I'm eating a full plate of crow. I'm not a fan. Hopefully, he's been fully interviewed and has been humbled.

Can't overly complain from a risk/reward scenario unless he has an adverse effect on our youth. For the price, you don't find many players with similar upside.

Off the ice I assume? On the ice he's always been a pretty solid player.

1 yr 1M is worth the risk. It is dirt cheap and Fisher hopefully should be back mid season so if he's a problem send him to the pressbox or put him on waivers. Have to think Laviolette had a good talk with him and gave Poile the green light to give Riberio a chance

Interesting, Preds have 4 centers on 1 yr terms; Fisher, Cullen, Ribeiro, Jokinen.

Still want P. Sharp

Was told to expect Predators to also announce Derek Roy signing at Riberio press conference in next hour.

Really don't like this addition. I want to let the kids play, not have a headcase ruining the locker room.

Wow this year is going to be interesting. You gotta think Poile is going to make a trade though, we have like, 17 NHL ready forwards now. We have quantity, I'll give you that, but we lack quality.

Clune
Wilson
Watson
Beck
Stalberg
Ribs
Fisher (IR)
Neal
Smith
Cullen
Jokinen
Sissons
Goose
Nystrom
Borque
Jarnkrok
Forsberg

All being in their mid-late 30's. Laviolette will be phasing some of them out by season's end IMO when we're out of the playoff hunt!

Haha posted this like an hour ago in the 2014-15 lineup thread.

I agree with AtlantaWhaler's reservations, but I think we all need to agree that, for this term and cap hit, there is virtually no risk to the signing even if he is scratched for all 82 games. Great job Poile.

There is no reason to not like this deal.

Low risk high reward. We are a better and deeper team now

He's only earning a couple-hundred grand more than Rich Clune!!!

This move is a strong no confidence vote on our young guys like Wilson, especially if we sign Roy too. I don't mind the additions, apart from it decreasing the time our youngsters have in the NHL. We could actually be a playoff team though with these additions.

The only young guy that would've had a chance to produce would've been Wilson or Jarnkrok if they were lucky enough to center Neal and Wilson.
