Didn't people on here think he was going to get 5-6 million or something? lol
Deal is good for the Hawks and Bickell.
Thank F we can put the "Let's sign Bickell" debate to bed.
I would have given him $4mil per. He brings more than 40 points to the table for sure. If he gets 40 that would be good. I see him getting 50-60 next sesaon in the Hawks top 6 and the element he brings to the table above that, which gives him far more value than a guy like Filppula, is that he creates space for guys like Toews and Kand and Hossa etc, to get more points than they would get if they had to create their own space. Bickell was moved from the 3rd line back up to the 1st/2nd line and the Hawks shifted back the momentum and won the cup. He also tied that game up by battling in front of the net and banging home a rebound Holmstrom style. His worth is $4 mil and I'd be ok if Holland would have given him the contract the Hawks did.
