... you still can't have Anderson, though.

I was half right: $5.857 would put them exactly 15th in the league in combined salary. Right in the middle. Whether it is "too expensive" or not is open to debate.

Teams with goalie combos who earn less than $5.857:
- Anaheim, Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Florida (obviously), LA (not for long, though), Ottawa, Phoenix, San Jose, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington, Winnipeg.
Hawks have terrible contracts like Olesz/Montador to deal with... Cant afford 5.8M on goaltending (None of which is close to elite)

Don't expect to get any of Zibanejad/Silfverberg/Stone/Lehner, of course, but what about:

Matt Puempel
Hjalmarsson + a mid round pick?

Hawks get a 1st round guy with a real scoring touch, we get the defenceman we need?

... I included a mid round pick because that seems to be a common theme on the trades board. Everyone adds "a 4th rounder" to everything, but seeing as how I'm not a greedy guy, I'll settle for a 5th.
So Hawks get a prospect who is gonna be hit or miss and give up a pick while giving up a NHL top 4 dman?
