TSN is reporting that Chicago signed Seabrook to a 29 million dollar extension for 5 years with a cap hit of 5.8 million dollars a year.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=355721

His cap hit this season was 3.5 million dollars. This means that the Blackhawks cap situation will be 2.3 million dollars tighter next year.

Overpayment.

Big, young, RH, shutdown defenseman. Plays in all situations. Hits. Blocks shots. Has performed well in the playoffs. Should still be improving.

I wouldn't call it a bargain, but it's not overpayment either.

He now makes more then the former norris trophy winner Mr.Duncan Keith. I think this was a bad contract when you have to resign sharp a year from now and you just added 2.3 mil to your cap next year without really getting much better...

Probably a fair contract. But holy crap they have a lot of cap room tied up in about half a roster.

Yeah honestly this is an overpayment, and really makes the Hjalmersson signing look a little stupid.

While Seabrook has been a lot better the past month or so, he was a fat slob to start this season and I can't help but think, like a lot of their players, his numbers and play have been elevated in past seasons by a really strong team around him. Nothing wrong with that, but 5.8 just seems like way too much considering how much they already have tied up in defense.

I wonder if a big trade is coming at some point in the off season to unload a contract if they can.

It's okay. They'll just loan him to a Swiss team if this contract becomes a problem next season.

During the length of this contract Kieth will still be making more money than Seabrook. His cap hit is just bigger because they didn't give him a long ass contract to lower the cap hit.

EDIT: So does this mean that Kopecky and Brouwer are gone come next season?

At the time, $6m was a bargain price for him. He was a marquee offensive defenseman.

Also, while he may not bring to the ice the defensive skills that Seabrook has, his offensive skills are far greater than those of Seabrook.

Good thing the cap is to go up 3-4 million next season.

I compare Seabrook to Stuart. I think they are both equal quality defencemen at what they do, but Stuart is a much better bargain.

Would you agree Stuart =/= Seabrook?

For the Blackhawks, its overpayment. They already dismantled half their team because of the big contracts that have with Toews, Kane, Keith, Campbell and Hossa. Now add Seabrook to that list. The Hawks clearly don't realize that the reason they won the Cup last year was because they had depth.

Campbell is the bad contract there.

With the raise, Chicago is paying around $275k more for Toews, Kane, Hossa, Keith, and Seabrook than we are for Pav, Hank, Mule, Nick, and Rafi. Both have two long-term deals. With the exception of Hossa, those guys are young and still improving.

The cap is expected to go up, perhaps by a significant amount, and the $4M bonus overage they're paying this year goes away. Even if they can't get rid of Campbell, they are not really bad off. $10M + whatever cap raise to sign 10-12 players, mostly bottom line players who should cost under $1M. If they could somehow dump Campbell, they'd actually be in pretty good shape.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.
