If this is in fact a done deal what's the hawks cap situation like now?



I think Versteegs hit was just over $3M a year.

Chicago is probably $8M under the cap, and they have a whole 13 players signed. They'll continue to bleed players tomorrow.

Curious...



Did you read the article? Or my post? You even cut out the part where I clarified why you're wrong. I'll do it again though.

Like I said, he said they didn't NEED to trade anybody (obviously posturing). He never said they WOULDN'T trade anybody. In fact, he hinted pretty heavily in that article that they would still be dealing.

Reading comprehension?

Versteeg, Byfuglien, Sopel, Eager. All key pieces to the cup run.

True, true, the article says he wouldn't rule out any more trades. But the implication of the article was that they didn't need to shed any more salary, which wasn't true.

Let me guess, you're counting Huet?

Much needed cap room was the primary reason. Stahlberg is an intriguing prospect also. Not bad return imo, given their situation.

I would agree. Stalberg has potential.

No, you're supposed to blindly assume that he wasn't posturing, even though everybody knew he was.

Comical.

People need to keep in mind that Niemi returning isn't a done deal. If the price isn't right he could be gone.

Don't forget, once they rid themseves of Huet they will still not lose all of his cap hit because a certain amount of it still needs to go for Niemi's huge pay raise. (Where's the accountant on the calculator emoticon when you need it?)

I will admit that the hawks offseason isn't going as bad as I has hoped. But I wonder how long it will take for them to get some chemistry. You always see that the points you don't get in October and November come back to haunt you in March and April the hawks better hope that there lines click right away or the wings will run away with the division pretty quick

He'd be the next I'd let go. I was kind of prepared for him to be gone anyways.

Oooh, that would be fun! I'd like to see them have to suffer with Huet. Or, even more hilariously, signing someone like Turco.

I'm aware of the raises that him Ladd, and Hjalmarrson will likely get.

Like I said, if another team wants one of those guys bad enough, the Hawks will have to lose them.

Don't know what to think of this one.

Leafs gave up some intriguing prospects (except for Paradis - he's not much) but get back somebody with Cup experience and some talent to boot in Versteeg. I don't know a damn thing about Sweatt.
