    His cap still counts, but as long as he goes on LTIR the Hawks can exceed the cap.

    Basic formula:
    This formula is used throughout the season and during the off-season
    Amount team can exceed the cap = Cap hit of LTIR player - Amount of cap space available


    Hossa's cap hit is 5,275,000. If the team enters the season with 275,000 in cap space left including Hossa's, for instance, they can This is as far as I understand the LTIR. As Bowman has stated, there are a lot of small complications with cap things that the fans don't even know about/comprehend. :shrug:

    I assume they can still move Seabrook if they attach a draft pick and/or a young prospect along with him?

    He has a full No Move Clause, so he has to agree to any trade.

    Turns out the Hawks didn't offer Rasmussen, so he is now an UFA. Pokka signed for one year.

    One hour until free agency officially begins.

    This makes sense:

    Saad - Toews - Panik
    DeBrincat - Anisimov - Kane
    Sharp - Schmaltz - Hartman
    Kero - Dauphin - Hayden/Jurco/Hinostroza/Tootoo


    Andy Strickland
    Tommy Wingels to sign with Chicago #Blackhawks. Finished in Ottawa last season #NHLFreeAgency

    That would be a start to help the bottom 6.

    Bob McKenzie
    Patrick Sharp's terms in CHI, $800K base salary and $200K in GP bonuses for $1M package.

    Great deal!

    Hawks also sign G J-F Berube and D Jordan Oesterle.

    Berube signed for 2 years with a $750,000 cap hit. Same as Forsberg.

    Well, there are a lot of options for the bottom 6 now.

    Extended look at depth:

    Saad - Toews - Panik
    DeBrincat - Anisimov - Kane
    Sharp - Schmaltz - Hartman
    Kero - Wingels - Hayden/Hinostroza/Dauphin/Jurco/Tootoo/Buoma (lot of 4th line depth...)
    AHL/Emergency: Kampf/Baun/Fortin/Johnson

    Keith - Murphy
    Kempny - Seabrook
    Forsling - Rutta
    Pokka/Oesterle - Rozsival
    AHL/Emergency: Svedberg/Gustafsson?

    Crawford
    Forsberg
    AHL/Emergency: Berube/Glass

    They have made a lot of low risk, high reward type moves in the past few days addressing the bottom six and defense depth. I'm staying cautiously optimistic. The team has gained some speed and defensive ability back. Just need a few more of the young guys to take the next step and contribute. Hopefully DeBrincat tears it up and makes the team out of camp. Then they just need two of Kero/Hayden/Hinostroza/Jurco/Tootoo/Dauphin/Buomo to earn regular playing time. Schmaltz and Hartman seem safe in their spots to me. That's some really good 4th line depth to me. Can't have too many cheap contracts like that.

    Just two seasons ago, Sharp was a 20 goal/50 point player. If he rebounds from an injury-riddled season and gets improves he has potential to provide tremendous value for $800K. That's the same cap hit as Jurco and just 100K more than Tootoo, for reference. Along with Saad, he brings some defensive ability that they lost with Hossa. I think he'll be great on the third line with the younger players.

    Sounds like they may have something in Oesterle, with him just not getting much of a chance with the Oilers. I would expect him to compete for playing time with Rutta and Pokka after Kempny/Forsling.

    Forsberg is a legit AHL starter based on the numbers-just needs to translate it to NHL. Very limited opportunities so far. I think he'll be a fine backup to get 20-25 starts as usual for the Hawks.

    Vegas flipped Kruger to Carolina, naturally.


    The Hawks must have a new affiliate in Carolina... Darling, Kruger, TVR, Nordstrom, Teravainen, Dahlbeck.

    Going to the game in Vegas on October 24! Might need a new jersey. They're 40% off rn and mulling either Goulet or Murphy. My rule that I can only wear jerseys of players older than me stands!
