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.


What about the $4+ million in bonuses Chicago has to pay out?

I def didn't think he'd go for 1.8... I guess his past injuries contributed a bit to the lower cap hit. I would have taken him at 1.8.


Exactly kind of player and deal that Detroit/Holland should be going after... I would like to know what Holland is doing now

Guess this is why Kenny wanted to sit back and watch the implosions occur. Even entertaining to me.

Chris Mason to ATL signing a two-year deal with yearly salaries of $1.6 and $2.1 million.


How do GMs keep thinking Chris Mason is a good starting goalie?

I believe capgeek has the bonus' figured in. I could be wrong but currently with huet on the roster and the bonus' figured in they have 4ish mill left in cap.

He's there to be a tandem with Ondrej Pavelec.

2 years ago he literally carried the blues to a playoff birth. I think for a team that is in a rebuilding phase he'll be able to solidify that goaltending.

McGuire making it seem like the Foster deal is the worst deal so far today.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Looks like Kovy wants to suffer in Swampland some more.
