Chicago may have to let some players go.


That's a slight understatement. I know s***cago fans like to say they're not about to enter cap hell, but this summer my roommate's father was on an Air Canada flight with Cliff Fletcher and his exact words to describe Chicago this summer were "cap hell". :lol:

Worse even than we were, or Pittsburgh, or San Jose. They're pretty much at the expected new cap, and still like 8 players short of a full roster.

They might be able to unload Huet, but they'll also probably overpay Niemi, especially if they win the Cup. They likely have to part ways with at least one of Sharp, Versteeg, or Bolland, and probably Sopel, and possibly one of their better RFAs like Ladd or Hjalmarsson.

There is a part of me that will be happy to see them taken down a peg, but the bigger part just hates the salary cap even more. They've built a fantastic team, and they can't even get more than one shot at a Cup before they start losing pieces. They'll still be a solid team, but this might be the last time we see a team this deep for a while.

He wouldn't be the worst guy out there. And if we lose somebody like Miller/Eaves, I could see him here as a 4th line depth guy and a PK specialist. That being said, I would love to see someone with a little bit more of a scoring touch.

Nystrom is better than Burish in pretty much every way, and will probably cost about the same. Though I'd be ok with Burish.

Agreed.Maybe we can trade Draper to Tampa(or any team) for a draft pick,let Miller go,and sign Burish and Nystrom for the fourth line.

I think Nystrom is abetter fit then Burish as well but he's got a lot more talent. I figured we would be able to squeeze Burish in under the cap better.

With all his injuries this season he will come very cheap I would expect.

Very true.Nystrom is due for a steady pay raise and were only gonna be able to offer him so much.A guy that can skate a little better and drop the gloves,and probably would sign at league minimum would be Josh Gratton.Thoughts?

Care to share with us the amazing, useful, player you've scouted that will expect <600k a year and be willing to drop the gloves?

I misunderstood you- I thought you were referring to Burish, who I would say is a good bargain at ~500-600k.

Anywhere around 850K would be a decent deal for Burish.

You're right- I underestimated his worth and he's currently making ~700k. He probably won't need much of a raise considering his injuries last season. I assume Nystrom will get some offers around/just below the 1 million mark, which will probably be too much for the Wings.

Oh god, imagine watching that line play. Burish and Abdelakder would combine for like at least 25 fights and Eaves isn't scared to stick his nose in there, not to mention all of them are pretty big hitters.

I would love watching that line play.

Big hitters and like to hit are completely different :P Kronwall is a big hitter, so is Stuart.

That line would be fun to watch because that line would also grind to some goals as well!

See i like Bertuzzi and thought he had a great season and pretty good post season, only if he could cut out some of those penalties id be real happy, but if he left id like Raffi Torres in for Bert another big winger, i think Torres would bring the same scoring ability but a little more grit to his game like old Bert.

Agreed.If Torres is out or reach,I think Owen Nolan would be a solid,cheaper guy to take Bert's spot.
