Mikko Lehtonen

Since Nashville already did sign Koistinen I think there isn't so much desire to sign Lehtonen, but I wonder why not. Lehtonen in my eyes got enough to play in NHL. At least in 2-3 pair. He is good/decent in both ends of ice, have good shot, can move and can hit too. Or have there been anything about Lehtonen in Nashville?

From what I've heard here, is that Nashville has offered a 2-way deal pretty much every summer. Lehtonen is happy here in Oulu, so no reason to bail, for a 2-way deal.

He could be a 2-3 pairing guy, regularly, even on PP and PK, no doubt about that.

He'll be UFA this summer, so let's see if he is on another teams scope.

That stinks because the Preds will never offer him a one-way deal. Everything suggests that he could be a solid bottom pairing Dman, but teams don't take risks on #5 defenseman that often. Especially not $500k risks.

They were barely talked into signing Zidlicky into a one-way deal, and he had a reputation for being the best defenseman in Finland...if not outside the NHL entirely....at the time.
