Panarin, Rozsival Banking Bonuses

With one game left in the regular season, a couple Blackhawks are set to reach financial incentives.

There has been plenty of discussion around the bonuses rookie forward Artemi Panarin could reach. If he finishes in the top ten in scoring among NHL forwards, Panarin stands to receive a $1.725M bonus.

Panarin is currently ninth among forwards with 74 points. Right behind him with 73 points are Tyler Seguin (whose regular season is over), Kings center Anze Kopitar and Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko (who scored both goals against the Hawks on Thursday). After Kopitar and Tarasenko, there’s a four-point gap to Islanders star John Tavares with 69 points.

But Panarin isn’t the only Hawks player reaching financial benchmarks late this season.

Veteran defenseman Michal Rozsival played in his 50th game on Thursday night, earning him a $100,000 bonus.

  1. I’m looking at the NHL Point leaders right now. Artemi is 10th/11th, not 9th. Am I missing something?

  2. Good for Artemi – happy for him and very happy he chose to sign with the Hawks. Before the season started I would have been happy with a 50 point season with better seasons coming. He has far and away exceeded my hopes not only from a points perspective which is obviously very good, but also his all around game. His defense and toughness makes him more than “just” a good offensive player.

    Pay the man his money – he’s earned it.

  3. Give Bread Man the props. Even though it doesn’t help salary cap who are the last rookies to be near/top 10 points or point per game player. Doesn’t happen very often and think hes to get better as hasn’t started the prime of his prime yrs yet. The 72-15-88 line is going to tear it up for years.

  4. Panarin deserves every dime. His play has been a huge plus for the Hawks, agree with ER wholeheartedly. Same with Rozsival. He bounced back after a brutal injury and has played better than I expected. Let’s get everybody healthy and make some noise in the playoffs.

  5. Maybe I’m stupidly sarcastic? The previous comment was for all of the trade Kane advocates from the previous two seasons…

  6. Sign the Bread Man, Ladd and Shaw. Get rid of Teavo and maybe even Hammertime along with Bickell of course. Also get rid of Desjardins. He’s a -7 FFS.

  7. Desjardins is -7 because he kills penalties and starts in the defensive end like 70% of the time. Yet his on-ice Corsi differential is 0. That’s actually amazing.

    Get rid of Hammer and TT? Trollolol.

    Anyway, here’s hoping Panarin doesn’t play tonight, and Kopitar and Tarasenko get two points each. I like bread man and all, but the cap space is huge. Especially if we can’t get rid of Bickell.

  8. Ya, let’s go into the playoffs NOT supporting your top players to reach bonus money and adding to the lead of the Art Ross trophy as the first American born to do so. Ya, let’s play it cheap and destroy their morale. Give your head a shake and get some air.

    By the way it took Kane and Panarin nine whole seconds to get on the board. I’m sure Blackhawk management is just pissed! Gimme a break.

  9. …’s fun to follow the individual awards during the regular season… and this season we have winners in Kane for total points and Panarin for top rookie..and yes Crawford for honourable mention for Vezina…but since trade deadline and the acquisitions of numerous players from below .500 teams this team does not have a winning instinct as in the previous years…on paper this team looks good…but so far has not proven anything…I will stick with my earlier prediction of an early exit in round one….sorry guys not seeing any light at the end of the tunnel…
