This post sums up everything wrong with the Chicago Blackhawks' fanbase today. He put forth a "have-hearted offer" to Parise? He offered him more money on a slightly shorter term for a higher AAV. That's not "half-hearted"
The very thought that this team needs to "overpay" a guy like Doan to get "back on course" is beyond moronic. If Doan wants to sign in Chicago on a semi-sensible deal then great, if not - PASS. Pass, pass, ****ing pass. You don't overpay for a 36-year-old forward.. least not a player that relies heavily on the physical side of the game to make an impact.
I’ll say again. A good GM must pick his spots. Any decent FA is going to be sought after and given solid offers. If Stan wants to improve this team NOW, he needs to pay the price and show some flexibility to get er done. There are no bargain basement power forwards in this league. Looks like we’re in for another year of inactivity and cap space going unspent. That is what is “moronic” as is the statement about not needing a physical player. I suppose you chose to ignore how teams dominated Hawks physically last season. Well, you will doing a lot of ignoring this year as well if things remain as they are.
