All-star calibre skillset, ECHL brain for the game, but he is appealing cap wise next year (1.5). At 7th overall there is a very good chance one of Monohan or Lindholm is available, and I know 2nd line C has been a need for you guys since the cup win. Again, won't hold my breath for Seabrook actually being made available.

As for the two possible UFA's, sounds like the majority are leaning towards Stalberg which is who I like better as well. That said, Bickell is bigger and grittier which fills more of a need for the Oil. 3 mil per sound about right for him?

Thanks for all the input as well. Some fans get a little defensive about other teams trying to pry their players away in UFA, but with the way you guys develop players and the fact you have such a strong core locked up, I suppose you're used to it.
Not even close.

Hall or RNH would have to come back to Chicago, with a preference for RNH if I'm Chicago.

In other words, Chicago's not moving him. Top-pairing Dmen, in their primes, aren't moved very often.
