It's a good hockey deal. But the money would get in the way.

However, this is a move that seems like Carolina's style. A "20 goal potential" winger who doesn't click with the team he is on anymore. Do the Canes want a potential scoring winger?

sarcasm: Maybe the blackhawks can agree to pay the rest of Jeremy Welsh's salary to even it out? /sarcasm
Definitely need a scoring winger, and the team is WAY below the cap. This is actually a pretty well thought out deal. Not sure if JR would gamble on Frolik with 2 years left, but 2.3 isn't a killer contract. And we have Riley Nash in the system right now ready to take over for Brent but without a roster spot to do so.
