Well the Hawks have to start high. That's the smart thing to do in any negotiation. If they think they'll get it that's another story (one that deserves a ). But you never know, there are some nutty GM's out there.

That's the surprising thing, he's not. He's overpaid sure but not terribly. Most of us here have already posted that we'll be happy to take Sopel back for Ladd. If we are short cap space we can send him to Manitoba, but if we have extra cap space why not keep him at a 6-7 D-man.

I'd be willing to do Hansen and a pick for Ladd. In fact, I'm willing to send them SOB as well. If Chicago manages to keep Hjalmarsson they will desperately need cheap D-men in the 1 million range. In fact, Alberts would fit that bill even more. He played decent in the Chicago series, hopefully enough that Bowman would be willing to take him. That and the 3rd D pairing in Chicago won't see much ice time.
