Two years, $2 million per season for Jackman in Nashville

803 career NHL games. A leader his entire career. 34-years old. And coming off of a season in which he played 80 games, produced 15 points (2 goals, 13 assists), had 47 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus rating of +3. Pair this bit of business with the Predators re-signing center Mike Ribeiro and I think the organization is a solid 2/2 in what they wanted to get done so far this afternoon.
