The on ice value is even in my eyes. Patrick Kane would give this team the offensive burst it desperately needs, especially for a team that lacks creative forwards outside the Sedins.
Oh no, I know it's happened, but Holmgren and Gillis are two very different managers. His value shot up, but it also shot up to us (at that cap hit) as well.

I think perhaps I used the OIV term wrong, but Chicago gets much better at two spots (a top pairing D and a top 5 goalie), including the only spot they really need an upgrade, for a top six winger, and we pump up one position with Kane, and weaken our net and defence (not even counting the fact I don't see Hjalmarsson beating Tanev out for a top 4 spot, but Edler > Hjalmarsson). I think Chicago improves much more then we do.
