I'd keep Niemi rather than Hjalmarsson. I don't know why. Maybe because of that French guy.

Some crazy shizz needs to happen for them to get Niemi back.

Perhaps bidding goodbye to Sharp could be part of that craziness.

And more laughter shall ensue on my end. He is a very very underrated player on this team. He goes, they are torched.

Looks like it may have to come down to either Niemi or Sharp.

An arbiter just awarded Clark MacArthur $2.4M... and the Thrashers walked away.

I really don't think the Blackhawks are even in the same stratoshere in talks with Niemi.

I think it's possible the knuckle puck kid from the Mighty Ducks movies may be the Hawks goalie next year. Either him or the goalie from Slapshot.

I read that wrong and nearly posted, "The f*** is going on when Clark MacArthur gets $4.2 million?"

Would it be more beneficial for the Hawks to keep Niemi and lose Sharp, or the other way around and go with Huet?

If they go with Huet they'll have to lose Sharp anyway.

It would be far from Bowman's first choice. If someone gives him an offer sheet next off-season, it could well be worth a first-, second- and third-round pick to the Hawks. Maybe even two first and the others.

Sharp is a bigger cap hit, for two seasons, after which he'll become a UFA and they'll get zero in lieu of his absence. Plus, Bowman being the son of his father, I'm sure he believes in building from defense.

With this in mind, IMO it makes much more sense to move Sharp than Seabrook.

My prediction, they lose Niemi, keep Sharp and start Huet. And lose most of the bandwagon fans.

Might need to fix this one up a touch for you.

My prediction, they lose Niemi, keep Sharp and start Huet. Get penalized by the NHL for going over the cap and dress only 17 players. And lose most of the bandwagon fans.

Sharp has been told he wont get traded, and Hawks will sign him as long as its under 3 Million, which it should be.

Sharp was already signed for $3.9m coming into the summer.

It's looking more and more like they'll trade Niemi and either sign a cheap vet like a Turco/Theodore for under $1.5m or just go with a tandem of Crawford/Toivonen.
