$0.6 million less cap hit according to Capgeek numbers.

Not even close. According to capgeek they have $140k to sign 6 more players.

They'll need to keep Niemi, get rid of Huet and sign a Turco or Theodore type goalie. This probably means moving Sharp to pay for Niemi. Getting rid of Huet will allow them to fill out the roster with scrubs and sign a semi-decent backup.

Words can't describe the mess that's over there. Every time I think, "nah, its being exaggerated a bit, they'll be fine," Chicago pulls another desperation deal to free up seemingly irrelevant slivers of cap space.

Had they not won the Cup I would feel sorry for them.

I guess that ruins his expressed excitement over going to the Cup winning team.

lmao....it was fun while it lasted now back to a bottom dweller.

If they bury Huet, trade Sharp and are lucky enough to get Niemi for $3.5m, this is their situation:

FORWARDS

Patrick Kane ($6.300m) / Jonathan Toews ($6.300m) / Marian Hossa ($5.275m)

Troy Brouwer ($1.025m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Tomas Kopecky ($1.200m)

Jake Dowell ($0.525m) / Viktor Stalberg ($0.850m) / Jack Skille ($0.600m)

/ Jeff Taffe ($0.550m)

DEFENSEMEN

Brian Campbell ($7.142m) / Duncan Keith ($5.538m)

Brent Seabrook ($3.500m) / Niklas Hjalmarsson ($3.500m)

John Scott ($0.512m)

Corey Crawford ($0.800m) /Antti Niemi ($3.500m)

CARRY-OVER BONUS PENALTY: $4,157,753

(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)

SALARY CAP: $59,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $54,651,590; BONUSES: $65,000

CAP SPACE (17-man roster): $4,813,410

Just under $5m for a minimum of 5 more players. Not a desirable situation but probably their best case scenario.

Can a team with Kopecky as a top 3 winger really contend for the Cup?

Keep killing your depth Chicago, would've been easier to just trade Hossa and keep half the team. But lets all give Dale Tallon a hand for screwing over the dumboHawks with the Campbell and Huet contracts :thumbup:

Lets say Niemi gets 2.7 mil. Here is the hawks lineup. Overall, they retain their top 6 forwards, top 4 and #7 defensemen, and their #1 goalie. (In other words, they retained their core). Burish and Eager are replaced with Dowell and Bickell. (Upgrade IMO). Lalonde is a promising prospect as well.

Stalberg < Byfuglien

Makarov < Versteeg

Skille < Ladd

They lost 3 solid players and at the very least need one of the replacements to match the 35-50 pts Byfuglien or Versteeg would have put up. All in all though, not bad. They will still be a top 4-5 team in conference. Not quite the depth to make another cup run however, but nor do the Red Wings.

:hehe: I wish I knew a Hawk fan right about now :P

they are all happy and believe that

1) they have the best top 6 forwards in the league

2) the rookies who will fill out their bottom six will mostly be calder candidates

3) having either jose theodore or turco as their goalie will be fine since their goalies won't be called upon to make many saves anyway

4) there won't be injuries during the season

They probably would move Bolland before Sharp though, sharp is more important to them
