One thought on “Blackhawks Sign D Steve Montador

  1. Mont goes from 1.55 last year to 2.75 with us for 4 years. HOLY COW. How does that make sense.

    That is almost all the overage from brower and soupy being gone. That is 5M, now about half that is gone. How is that any good?

    7.1 soup better than 2.75 mont and 3.1 olez (5.85 total) ????????????????????

    This is nuts. 1.75 for Mont is ok.

    But I guess in this market, prices are going up, so little quality and floors have to be met. Prices are going up from the bottom up. See Kopecky.
