Blackhawks Shopping Hjalmarsson and Montador
 
http://www.suntimes.com/sports/13333...almarsson.html

Quote:

League sources told the Sun-Times that the Hawks are actively shopping defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, who has two years left on a four-year contract with a $3.5 million salary-cap hit.

A league source also said the Hawks are looking for takers for defenseman Steve Montador, who has three years left on a four-year deal carrying a $2.75 million cap hit.
Quote:

Montadorís value isnít nearly as high, especially considering heís 32, recovering from a concussion and had an up-and-down first season with the Hawks. A source indicated that if Montador (modified no-trade clause) canít be moved, the Hawks may be open to burying his contract in the minors, as they have for Cristobal Huet and Rostislav Olesz.
I thought the Montador signing was a head-scratcher last year. He was solid the season before (26 points with Buffalo), but he was never going to be able to live up to a 4 year, $11 million deal. Add in concussion issues and the only way he gets dealt is if someone can dump a bad contract the other way.

Montador will be our #5 defensemen next year. I barely watch hockey and I know that. Horrible journalism.

Sens Mile 06-21-2012 07:14 PM

Hopefully Ottawa is in on the Hammer

TorstenFrings 06-21-2012 07:15 PM

Wow, whgo saw that coming. Besides everyone, I mean.

Ziggy Stardust 06-21-2012 07:15 PM

How Steve Montador has a NTC is astonishing.

Kusic 06-21-2012 07:16 PM

Tampa need D. Hjalmarsson would be awesome :naughty:

To Winnipeg:


Niklas Hjalmarsson
4 Round Pick(take this pick or leave it)

To Chicago:

2nd round pick (Chicago's own in Odyua trade).

He's worth more than that, especially after your edit...

Hjalmarsson to Carolina, just to keep the Simpsons theme going.

Skinner, McBain and Superintendent Hjalmarsson.

That's really disrespectful man.

how does this help the Hawks?

New York RKY 06-21-2012 07:19 PM

Would really be interested to see the price on NH.

SnS 06-21-2012 07:19 PM

I'd like Hammer.

Gil Gunderson 06-21-2012 07:19 PM

Murray should be looking at Hammer. Karlsson needs a D partner.

Dude I am sorry man. What do you would be a fair price for him.

BOUNCE 06-21-2012 07:21 PM

Oilers will be all over trying to land Hjalmarsson.
Would a 2nd (32nd overall) get it done? Does Chicago need cap space?

no the Hawks are not looking to shed salary just to do it. They are trying to win, trading away a top 4 d-man for a pick doesn't really help that.

I totally agree with you. This would make more sense if the Blackhawks managed to sign Ryan Suter to a contract.

My feeling is that if Hjammer gets dealt, it will be for a current roster player and not a pick or prospect. That's not to say a prospect or pick wouldn't be included, but I'd say a roster play must be in the deal for it to get done.

Kusic 06-21-2012 07:28 PM

:bolts
2nd round pick (40th overall)
Brendan Mikkelson's rights (RFA) or Nikita Kucherov

:hawks
Nicklas Hjalmarsson

yeah, but there's no way to know if they can or not...so it'd be too risky to trade Hammer then not get Suter.

What prospect would you want from the Oilers? Hartikainen? Paajarvi?

It would actually make a lot of sense.

Marlowe Syn 06-21-2012 07:33 PM

I'm not going to try to set a set fast trade prop but what about a Hjalmersson for Scandella(fan of) plus trade from Wild

Security Guard Chang* 06-21-2012 07:34 PM

Zack smith plus 3rd
