I think I might have. Or at least implied it at some point... maybe.

Well, with the Ladd trade following the Byfuglien and Versteeg trades, it brings up some interesting thoughts.

Neither Ladd nor Byfuglien will play the left side with Toews. Neither played much with him in the Finals either.

Perhaps we see a continuation of that Finals line instead, with Kane on the second line alongside Sharp?

2010-11 CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

CAPGEEK.COM CAP CALCULATOR

FORWARDS

Tomas Kopecky ($1.200m) / Jonathan Toews ($6.300m) / Marian Hossa ($5.275m)
Viktor Stalberg ($0.850m) / Patrick Sharp ($3.900m) / Patrick Kane ($6.300m)
Troy Brouwer ($1.025m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Marcus Kruger ($0.735m)
Chris DiDomenico ($0.678m) / Marty Reasoner ($1.150m) / * Bryan Bickell ($0.550m)
Jake Dowell ($0.525m)

DEFENSEMEN

Brent Seabrook ($3.500m) / Duncan Keith ($5.538m)
Brian Campbell ($7.143m) / * Niklas Hjalmarsson ($2.250m)
* Danny Richmond ($0.550m) / * Jordan Hendry ($0.675m)
John Scott ($0.512m)

GOALTENDERS

* Antti Niemi ($2.250m) / Corey Crawford ($0.800m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 22; CAP:$59.4m; PAYROLL: $59.272m; CAP ROOM: $0.248m BONUSES: $0.145m

The key replacements on this roster:

Kopecky taking over Byfuglien's role as the primary net presence. It's something he should be able to provide, especially having already proven chemistry with Toews and Hossa.

Stalberg, Kruger, Didomenico, Reasoner, and Bickell taking over for Versteeg, Ladd, Fraser, Madden, and Eager.

Hendry taking over Sopel's role in the top five, and Richmond (?) taking a role in the top six.

Niemi proving he can be a strong starter for a full season, and Crawford showing the form that made him the Hawks' top goaltending prospect in prior seasons, not to mention considerably outplaying Niemi in the AHL in 08-09.

Chicago will be younger, given the number of prospects they will have coming onto the roster, with one vet (Reasoner) coming in to replace a vet (Madden) who was older and more expensive. Chicago's offseason plan includes dumping two other vets who will be replaced by young players (Sopel, Huet). Every other position will be replaced by younger, cheaper players who Bowman is hoping can develop well within their first couple of seasons.

They'll be good. Fourth or fifth in the conference. Probably top eight overall. But they won't make the Cup Finals and their chances at the WCF are slim.

Where's the ~4.2 million they owe in bonus overages?

if the $4 million bonus hit is true they might have to move another TWO contracts. also, from reports I've read, Niemi wants his money
