According to generalfanager.com, Jarnkrok's $2 million cap hit is the lowest among 146 active NHL contracts that are at least six years in length. Nashville avoided arbitration with Jarnkrok, who had a hearing set for Aug. 4. On Tuesday, the Predators agreed to a two-year contract with defenseman Petter Granberg, who was to have an arbitration hearing Aug. 3. RELATED: Predators sign Matt Carle to 1-year contract
