UNBELIEVABLE: Predators GM admits to major mistake by placing Eeli Tolvanen on waivers.

The Tennessee team did not believe he would be claimed, as the Finn had only four points in 13 games. It must be said that this is a very bad management on the part of the Predators, because Tolvanen was injured at the beginning of the season, which somehow explains his ordinary performances.
Moreover, playing mainly on the fourth line last year, it didn't take a genius to know that this player, with an undeniable talent, was stifled in Nashville.
The Kraken jumped at the chance after 22 teams looked at him and added another talent to their team. Tolvanen has been performing well since joining the team with five points in as many games.
Predators general manager David Poile admitted that he made a mistake in drafting the forward.
