The Predators have reached agreement on a new two-year deal with center Vern Fiddler, who has avoided an arbitration hearing that was scheduled for July 24.

Terms of the deal weren’t immediately known.

It said in the Tennessean article, 800k and 900k.......an 850k cap hit. Not great, but not too bad.

Predators avoided salary arbitration with Vern Fiddler on Wednesday, signing the forward to a US$1.7-million, two-year contract.

I'm just wondering what is up with everybody's hatred with fiddler. He's not the greatest player but looking at our roster, he's probaly the best two way third liner we have. Which is scary now that i think about it but nonetheless true.

No he's not, Bonk is fair superior in every way except work ethic.

Talent wise Nichol is better too.

I'll give you bonk because I haven't seen him play enough, but no way is nichol more talented then fids. Nichol might have has some decent offensive season in juniors and in all fairness he makes some nice plays sometimes however fids has a better skillset IMO.

EDIT: But admittly his skillset doesn't always translate into good numbers. If everybody played to their capabilty erat would be averaging a ppg.

Actually, I don't have a hatred for Fiddler at all. The comment was more towards signing work ethic and character players, which is not a bad thing.

Nichol is a better stickhandler(not to say he's good at it) than Fiddler, better faceoff guy and better shot. The only thing Fiddler has on Nichol is size, and he doesn't even have all that much of that.

You can watch games to see how far the puck bounces from Fiddler's stick when he receives a pass.

I like Fiddler just fine...as long as he stays down on the 3rd and 4th lines.
