I think it's fine for one year to give him a chance to rebound

I think he will rebound. Good signing. Low risk.

Clearly they're betting on Granlund getting a confidence boost from playing next to a fellow Finn in Haula. Hey, it's worth a shot!

This makes zero sense for both sides. Why not go somewhere new? Why not play with a decent Center? Nashville will be very mediocre again.

I think it makes perfect sense for both sides...
Nashville gets a good veteran forward that can play in that middle six and always jump up if needed. He can play centre if needed. 1 year. very little risk.

What team in the NHL was going to give Granlund 3.75??
The market is dry

Low risk high reward signing and he’ll help that forward core, good signing and also its transactions galore since we know what will happen this season

He played pretty well last few months. Atleast compare to almost all other preds forwards. Coach seemed to like him, played big minutes, PK etc.

I guess I just thought that the Granlund in NSH experiment had run its course. It failed. He was an absolute scoring machine in MIN.

Only once has Haula topped 34 points in his career. .43 ppg in his career, as well. I suppose Haula has the potential to be a 40-45 point player, but I'm taking the under all day every day on that.

I think it's too much BUT if he rebounds well this short season it will be good for the team. HE MUST PRODUCE.

He might do better under different coaching. Think options were limited.

This would be a solid deal for any team besides NSH. I do not understand why they'd want to try the Granlund experiment again.
