Blackhawks Acquire Jordan Schroeder

The Blackhawks made a quiet trade on Wednesday afternoon, announcing the team has acquired forward Jordan Schroeder from Columbus for goaltender JR Berube.

Schroeder, who turns 28 on Sept. 29, was originally the 22nd overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. He scored one goal and added one assist in 21 regular season games for the Jackets last season. Schroeder contributed 36 points in 48 games with Cleveland in the AHL as well.

He has appeared in 165 career regular season NHL games for the Canucks, Wild and Blue Jackets, scoring 18 goals with 24 assists.

Schroeder has one year remaining on his contract with a $650,000 cap hit at the NHL level; Berube had a $700,000 cap hit for next season.

  1. Another sign pointing to the Cam Ward deal being signed but not official, not that JR Berube is anything more than a 3rd or 4th string goalie.

  2. Good deal. Clear a goalie spot for the new backup. And schroeder will help replace some of the veteran offense down with Rockford.

  3. We’ll be getting rid of these people here… First, Mr. Samir Naga… Naga… Naga… Not gonna work here anymore, anyway.

  4. Looks like the Blue Jackets are making room for Anisimov ,.,.,HA.

    The Hawks are on the slow build here boys ,don`t get to excited about the VERY little moves management makes this coming week . Stan lacks the touch to pull off a major move .

  5. Thing is Mo as is and Hossa not moved or AA, and in season ltir used, to be able to accrue cap space you have about 6.5m. If you make both those moves and use all that space then next season signings become a challenge. You could move one maybe be ok or both and do one year deals but limits who will sign, move other contracts, Rutta alone doesn’t do much. Use in season ltir to get a rental expiring deal at deadline, accrue daily cap hit until then. Sign a goalie and skater signed with 6.5m available now. Maybe move AA for a Dman or something too. Hard to know best way to go.

  6. Also inseason ltir would give you room if such a thing Crawford unable to go all year to look at another goalie too.

  7. Can we bank space, when we’re using a litr player, during season. I thought if we had someone on lite we can’t bank space.

    We’re obviously going to be better and deeper for 20 and on…. just thinking clear bonuses any any we have this yr, so we’re full usage of salary cap for the coming yes when we’re a top team again.

  8. I would want to trade 81 caphit so we can bank space and add a couple guys in positions we need badly. Not have to use entire 16m, to be able to bank and depending on who we can get would determineifwewantthem for 5ish yrs or 1yr. Add again next summer, same thing depending on who determines the yrs.

    Get it moar ready for 20 and on.

  9. I do think were going to be back, play, by addressing what we need for 19 season and be pleasantly surprised how good we do. We have the upside of having another wave of good young players coming each yr and that will make the difference.

    Each yr for the coming yrs we can keep everyone, basically/15/7/44, and add each yr. We’re going to come on strong each yr.

    Going to be a fun 5 or more yrs coming up.

  10. If moving Hossa contract makes sense, so far sounds like he isn’t getting offers he wants. So no guarantees there.

  11. Can we bank space, having a litr/over actual cap, or not. That’s the deal breaker for me.

    Sure we do not have to if not going to use entire space this summer. We will iseentire space once we get qualitydeep again.

  12. When you place somebody on season opening ltir there is a calculation done, which is basically your caphit without ltir salary which you have to be under to accrue space. With a couple of minor moves, like using waiver exempt bodies its possible to be under that limit. So be as close to 79.5m as possible without going over Hossa included as one spot.

    To do off season you try to use ss much of ltir salary prior to season as you can, so getting under by that much again, have to shed salary equal to ltir used, not really likely to happen as it would defeat the purpose.

  13. Sure. So are you saying we can bank space, even when having someone on a litr, as long as we’re under ‘that’ cap. Or. We can only bank space when no player is on a litr and are under ‘the teams’ cap.

  14. Thats right, may have to go with 22 man roster until room for 23rd or something but thats not something they haven’t done before.

  15. Mo if you accrue space to deadline then got a rental whose contract was up at end of season, the accrued space would be there again after July 1st to put towards any bonus overages incurred this season.

  16. I just want to bank space, on a yr we can, after we couldn’t and had bonuses. Absolutely have to bank space this yr whatever we do so we’re good to go for 4-5 yrs with player bonuses not getting in the way.

    We could do 21 on roster with as many young prospects that can play/get a few games in on a yr, there not ready yet for full 82, when needed and bank.

  17. I am sure they know exactly what’s needed to bank to cover and back pay bonuses for how ever many different options we got with roster adds/have now.

    Just want no extra weight for these yrs. When we can plan ahead/take care of it now, if not spending entire amount. Take advantage, nicely with smile.

  18. Agree banking best route, to do that full hit if getting rental would have to be absorbed by using ltir and not your daily cap discount. Also not bigger than Hossa’s caphit.

  19. We have no player bonuses after paying lastyrs and covering this yrs, then good.

    Anyway they want to do it, that’s what’s better for 5 coming yrs. no speed bumps.

  20. Ladies & Gentlemen, welcome to “Committed Actuaries”

    Where everything you could ever want to know about “salary cap space”,” LTIR”, “bonuses” etc. are covered ad nauseam…

  21. Not related to this string, thought you would like to see the draft grades given to each team by a number of sources:

    In the Western Conference the Blackhawks get the top overall score, while the Preds finish at the bottom with the Jets just above them. You can click to see a table of composite grades grades for each of the 10 sources. If they are right, the Blackhawks killed it with this draft!

  22. Thanks Ian, it’s good to know exactly how it works. Some do not know everything about it and the info helps those people. I am sure the same questions will be asked again in OCT. again. It’s nice to know now.

  23. Original, based on the majority of posts here, it was determined we got a F for draft. Interesting we got an A. Well know in 2-3 yrs the real grade.

    Thanks for link.

  24. Much like the Nick Leddy situation in the summer of 2014 and the Patrick Sharp summer saga in 2015, I doubt there is any team in the league willing to take Hossa’s contract, even if the actual money is $1 Million per year. In both cases, Stan got absolutely fleeced.

    I think every GM in the league knows that by doing so, they would be “helping” the Hawks be a major player come July 1. Furthermore, teams that need to get to the cap floor, do not have the urgency to get Hossa’s contract on the books until October. Stan has absolutely no leverage at this point.

  25. We got the 10% during summer for July 1, though then would be known we need to get under cap by OCT.

  26. Again, if you’re doubting that a team will take Hossa’s contract you need to pay attention to math. Not cap number, but salary AND cap number.

    Hossa’s CAP HIT is over $5M. His ACTUAL SALARY is $1M. So if you’re a floor team (read: Arizona) and you’d rather have an inflated cap number w/ minimal outgoing cash, Hossa’s contract is awful tempting. Esp if you can move other money off the books in the process (which is where the Darling-for-Hossa rumor started).

  27. Jordyhawk sorry if i bored you agree was little over the top. Seat 24 no i’m retired so i like to read alot. I think Ottawa and Canucks are good candidates to take Hossa’s hit too.
    Craig i think Bowmans leverage is some teams need to get to the floor and Bowman as much as he probably wants to move it he doesn’t have to. I hope he sticks to his guns and doesn’t cave in.

  28. Tab and Ian, I get the math, but there is no urgency for a cap floor team to take on Hossa’s contract by 7/1, which is really when Stan needs an answer by, if he wants to go “big game hunting” as they call it.

    I just don’t see it happening without adding a really good prospect.

  29. Sure that’s good point. Well we can use 10% 7.95m more then 79.5 for July 1. Teams would know more we need to trade Hoss caphit, it can be AA though whose contract is different starting July 1 to get under the cap. To sign 91 at 12m or whatever, not saying we sign him. Could be two guys between 4-6m.

  30. How about a AA for Pachioretty deal. May need some other parts but could work for both teams. Bowman gets a top 6 winger and Habs get top 6 center who they reportedly like. Comparable hits and Pachioretty comes off next season which could be a benefit too.

  31. That’s good. I read they were looking at Orielly, they can have both.
