  1. Figure at least one player making at least $6.0 will have to go. Kruger also. The incentives will make it tough. At least $2.5 for panarin and $750k for Campbell on next years cap.

  2. Scuderi’s $1.13m comes off the books next season. Campbell $1.5m becomes an UFA. Expose Kruger and you’re there.

  3. No guarantee vegas takes kruger be good if they did. Thing about the 2 yr. Bridge with no other major signings the next couple of years gives cap a chance to rise and make room for his next contract.

  4. Hawks have 15 players signed now and 6.5 mil left based on this years cap. Need 23 players most likely. Probably another 3.2 mil in bonuses will hit next year as accurately mentioned. Leaves 3.3 mil. Cap usually increases by 2 mil. So back up to 5.3 mil. Losing Kreuger opens 3 mil but increases players needed to 9. So 8.3 mil to sign 9 guys. Can be done but most likely another move needed to allow the flexibility they will want. If TVR is selected by Las Vegas then shit gets way more complicated. One thing for sure Stan has multiple plans. With their core unit signed they’ll be fine one way or another.

  5. Where are all the clowns including RTF who said the hawks would never sign the bread man!

  6. Very good move so it means we have him for 2 years then the Trade him probably except it they move Toews ….i still think Toews will be gone before Panarin …just a feeling …
    Very Happy we have him for another 2 years ….i was hoping 3-4 years but …2 years is good

  7. The kid can score a pretty one timer but,,does not go into dirty areas at all , and is a one dimensional player ,.,I know a lot of folks think we can,t live with out him but,.,.,
    I think money could be spent elsewhere,.,.,now we have 6 players eating up half our cap.

  8. DHB 59.33 MIL to 19,88,81 72 ,15 2, 7, 4 and 50. 7.2 mil more for 38, 48, 64 ,8 , 42 ,57 , fortin and a role forward at league minimum just because and svedberg as no. 7 dman = 66.53 plus be safe and say 3.5 mil in pushed bonuses plus 4 mil say to sign 14, 70 ,6 & 33 comes to 74mil for 13 forwards 7 dmen and 2 goalies if cap goes to 75 mil you have room for an elc providing kruger goes

  9. Great news! So happy Panarin will be here through the 2018/19 season. How will the cap work? That’s a question to worry about on another day – today is a day to celebrate the Panarin extension.

  10. This is big and good for us, proves he wants to be here. It wasn’t going to be between 6.5-8m.

    Ian is right we only need to shed about 2m in cap space (with 22 on 23man). Makes it tuff to keep Krugs but that doesn’t mean we make a diff move.

    I think Soupy comes back, 1 yr at a time and sign for a low caphit without player bonus this time (because that’s what we need to do). He wants to be here to.

    Also our young guys are going to get better each yr, so were are on the up going forward. No big contracts to do as well so we can keep everyone going forward and get better.

    Trust the Bowmans.

  11. I agree morrison campbell could be back and kempny who knows he may head back to europe after this season if things continue heading south for him with the blackhawks

  12. Not sure about who will be leaving in the off season to accommodate the Panarin extension, but I am glad the Bread Man issue was resolved during the season as opposed to the offseason. The guy is a really exciting player that will get better. As Mo said it is also a good thing that Panarin likes playing here in Chicago and from a fan standpoint the feeling is mutual.

    The Hawks remain challenged from an offensive perspective. Goals have been harder to come by in the first half of the year, and were it not for fantastic goaltending this team would easily be 10 points worse in the standings. Keeping Panarin in the fold assures team offensive output holds or improves given slow starts from Kane and especially Toews. Somehow another left winger that can score would really help….

    Big divisional game tonight. Lets hope the Hawks bring a strong 60 minutes effort and a halt to the recent string of lackluster showings.

    Lets Go Hawks!!

  13. Glad the Hawks were able to fit Panarin into the roster for 2 more seasons! As much as I hate to do it I am going to; I know I know but here it goes…

    Panarin (25 yrs old) 117 games 114 pts

    Saad (24 yrs old) 111 games 82 pts

  14. Didn’t mean Bread Man isint worth 6.5-8m, he is. Just that when a bridge thats good for us and fair for him in terms of keeping a core like this together. Be beauty to see Bread Man continue a top FW league guy and get even better while being a Blackhawk for a 8 at 8yr when hes 27 (and we have him and 19 and 88 during the prime of these guys prime yrs.).
