Ray Whitney to PHX for 3 mil, 3 years.

Now THAT to me is a good contract. To think, Burke paid the same price to land Colby Armstrong.... :lol:

Those thinking that the hawks really only have 4 mill to spend need to realize that in that cap hit right now is Huet's contract at like 5.2mill. Its rumored but fairly reasonable to expect that Huet ends up in Rockford or he ends up playing in the khl with his salary paid for by the hawks but not on the cap hit. So its more along hte lines of 9 mill cap left with 13 players signed. Which isn't as bad but its still not good. Niemi and Hjallmerson are looking at raises which will likely put both of them around 5mill. So 15 people signed 4 mill to go... little better not so good though.


And you are forgetting that even though the old man died, this owner is still his father's son and will not simply pay some guy 5 MILLION DOLLARS to simply go away...this isn'tf****** NHL 10 where money is just an afterthought.

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

I'm gonna be honest with you, it would be nice to have anybody who can drop the gloves and play regular shifts on 3rd/4th line... but I don't think we are going to get that guy... I have like a "DÉJÀ VU"...

Yet we want Maltby.... again!!!! Sorry Kirk time to let ya go.

They have to pay him regardless. Rocky is a completely different owner than Dollar Bill. No matter where is playing they have to pay him 5 mill, unless they trade him or he is picked on waivers. He plays in the NHL, obviously he gets paid. Rockford: 1 way contract he gets paid. KHL: Paid in order to count on his contract years.

These prices are atrocious. Given the lack of talent available it doesn't surprise me how teams are overpaying, but I'm sure glad Kenny isn't one of them.

my plan worked then

What was that? To waste bandwidth.

Silly NFM....I'm now adding to the problem.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Let's just send offer sheet to Boll 3 years / $3M and get Brookbank or Scott and that's it... :yowza:

He wants to play in Vancouver... Look for Bieksa to get traded...

The worst deal of the day IMO, was Ottawa signing an injury riddled Gonchar, who quite frankly looked like he'd given up against Montreal in the playoffs, to a 35+ 3-year, $5.5 million contract.

They now have the defensive equivalent to the enigmatic and equally useless Alexei Kovalev.

... and to boot, they've very got little cap room left.

They have 3 goalies signed for this season and they signed Leighton. The Leighton signing ended their search for a "better" goalie.

I tend to agree, but the worst deal of the day that is still upcoming is the Kovalchuk deal. Some sun belt team will pay him $60-$70 mil/8 years to be the next Alexei Yashin.
