Better to manage with what they have now and ride out those bonus penalties.

If they walk:

FORWARDS
Troy Brouwer ($1.025m) / Jonathan Toews ($6.300m) / Patrick Kane ($6.300m)
Kyle Beach ($1.170m) / Patrick Sharp ($3.900m) / Marian Hossa ($5.275m)
Viktor Stalberg ($0.850m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Tomas Kopecky ($1.200m)
Bryan Bickell ($0.541m) / Jeff Taffe ($0.550m) / Jack Skille ($0.600m)
Igor Makarov ($0.552m)

DEFENSEMEN
Brent Seabrook ($3.500m) / Duncan Keith ($5.538m)
Niklas Hjalmarsson ($3.500m) / Brian Campbell ($7.142m)
John Scott ($0.512m) / 998K or less UFA
Jassen Cullimore ($0.500m)

GOALTENDERS
Marty Turco ($1.500m) / Corey Crawford ($0.800m)

SALARY CAP: $59,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $58,791,590; BONUSES: $390,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $998,410
Actually if they sign Turco for the rumored 1.5 and let Niemi go they would probably look more like this

#1

Beach makes team over Makarov and Hawks resign Dman Jordan Hendry

FORWARDS
Kyle Beach ($1.170m) / Jonathan Toews ($6.300m) / Patrick Kane ($6.300m)

Troy Brouwer ($1.025m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Jack Skille ($0.600m)
Bryan Bickell ($0.541m) / Jake Dowell ($0.525m) / Tomas Kopecky ($1.200m)
/ Jeff Taffe ($0.550m)

DEFENSEMEN
Brian Campbell ($7.142m) / Duncan Keith ($5.538m)
Brent Seabrook ($3.500m) / Niklas Hjalmarsson ($3.500m)
Ivan Vishnevskiy ($0.821m) / Jordan Hendry ($0.625m)
John Scott ($0.512m)

We sign a vet like Mckee and pair him with Vishnevskiy on our bottom pairing and keep Beach in AHL going with Makarov on roster
