Could be the steal of the UFA's. Could be injured in game #1 and miss entire season, too. Good risk reward. A+

Haula is an underrated player imo. Has played at a 50pt pace tbe last 3 years, but injuries have been a problem. Good in the face-off circle can play all situations and move around the line-up. Kind of a Swiss army knife.

yup and hes been looking for a top 6 role for a while, which I think is justifiable having him as a 2W. He has a better chance of playing there on duchenes wing in Nashville
Good pick up for them

again...player might not want to play or sign in Toronto and who is just going to take Kerfoots contract at this point in the offseason.

You wasted your cap space on Spezza, Thornton, and Simmonds already. Maybe if Dubas would have been smarter with his signings

He makes for more than decent 3C at this price. Might even get 2PP minutes.
Got speed, decent in faceoffs etc.

I expect him to play 3C.
Forsberg - Johansen - Arvidsson
Jarnkrok - Duchene - Granlund
Grimaldi - Haula - Kunin
Trenin - Cousins - Sissons
Richardson

(just my lineup... I like Jarnkrok and I believe he would fit well with Duchene)

I think Haula and duchene would be fun together, When dutchy was still an Av, always wanted to line him up with more burners.

I feel like Haula has become the new Vanek. You ask 5 different people what team he plays for you get 5 different answers. Underrated guy makes any team better.

Also. He's only 29. Feels like he's been in the league forever.

Absolute steal. Would’ve got $3-$4 million in a normal year. Nashville is really taking advantage of their cap space and they could squeak in in a weak division.
