That's nuts and never ever going to happen. They signed for $6.3m per with 3 RFA years under their contracts when the cap was <$60m and before the hawks won two cups with both earning Conn Smythe awards. The cap is going to be $70m-plus next year, so you're expecting these true UFA now-proven elite guys to take a lower % of the team cap now? Let's be serious. And the "if they can fit them under the cap" comment" is worse, like they
re-sign their two best players if they can grossly underpay them by league standards.
They're getting $8m+, and I doubt Stan would even start talks in the 7s. The range is $8-9m, both sides know it.
