But what's the cap hit? I swear, if it's too high, we better fire Bowman. :sarcasm:

I didn't know that Bowman is the youngest GM in the NHL. Makes the decision back in 2010 to hire him even more ballsy.

Nothingman* 09-11-2013 09:25 AM

He earned it.

Hawkaholic 09-11-2013 10:05 AM

Can't believe they did this after he failed to trade for Derek Roy at the TD.

Cullksinikers 09-11-2013 10:13 AM

Did he negotiate it himself?

theaub 09-11-2013 10:32 AM

Should've fired him after he personally blew the 2012 season tbh

The ever essential piece is locked up, not Toews, not Kane, not Keith but the great Bowman, hope he continues to win Cups for this team with his amazing performances.

High praise considering that he can't even win one stinking faceoff.

Toews and Kane can not be extended until next summer. Keith is locked up until forever.

*Team loses season-opener 3-2, in a 15-round shootout"

"FIRE BOWMAN! (Part 6)"

When was the last time you saw Bowman throw a hit? This team doesn't need anymore softies.

But I'm glad to have him around anyway. Great work, Stan. Few people have managed to bring your silver namesake to this city, but you've helped do it twice.

Blue Liner 09-11-2013 11:06 PM

His glove side has been severely exposed.

madgoat33 09-11-2013 11:20 PM

one more good year from the hawks and he's pretty clearly a top 3 gm in the league IMO.

IU Hawks fan 09-11-2013 11:34 PM

Somehow didn't notice this til now.

FIRE ME!!

This is so right. GMs don't matter. It's easy, just start with a few great players, make some timely trades, stock the pipeline while drafting late to build a top 5-10 system, fire a bad coach for a very good one one and watch them win cups in the box with your suit on. You would have to be an idiot not to win two cups in four year and have your team with the best long-term outlook in the league

classic coldsteel

digdug41982 09-12-2013 07:40 AM

No, classic you guys. I can't praise him. I can't ingore it. So **** it.

x Tame Impala 09-12-2013 09:40 AM

Can we really win another cup with Bowman as our starting goalie?

Bowman should trade for a legit starting tender like Sather or Nonis

Why can't you praise him? He has done a great job with this team since he's been here, whether it's re-signing guys, drafting essential pieces, trading for essential pieces, and not trading essential pieces.

He's a great GM, sorry you can't see that.

Cuz DEREK ROY!!!

Ace Rothstein 09-12-2013 11:02 AM

I wonder if Stan negotiated a pay increase for the next 3 years as well. I figured he wouldn't get too long of an extension since he was already signed for 3 years but he probably deserves something more than just an extension.

You misread what I said. It's all I have been doing for months upon months.

come on...last week you circled back to blaming him for the hawks losing in the first round two years ago.
