I see what you're worry is, but let's be honest. We're basically dead in the water right now so I can see Gainey waiting a bit to assess the situation. If we aren't doing well he'll HAVE to make a trade and if Halak is in it so be it. Without Markov it won't matter if Price gets hurt as we're not a playoff team anyways so no need for a safety net because we'll have fallen anyways.

Yep. Clearly Huet will have to majorly stink it up and put Chicago in a desperate situation for them to even consider it. I do think we have the best backup available whose more than ready to perform as a #1. Thing is if they move Huet, no need to move anymore salaries.

Question: why exactly would the Hawks want Halak when they've got two promising (and ready) goaltenders in Corey Crawford and Antti Niemi?

Sergei and Halak is not enough for barker... But honestly, Barker is not in Chicago's future plans. Next year they need to sign Kane, Toews, Hjalmarsson, Keith ($$$), Ladd and Ben Eager. They have Barker signed at 3.085 mil for the next three years. I think this was more of a move to make the Barker package a little more attractive, as they will have a hard time getting rid of Cambell, and need so much cap room to sign their forwards.

Barker is in reach, but if we want him now, we need to over pay, and I am willing to do so.

Sergei, Halak, first rounder, 2nd rounder for Barker

When Markov is gone

Barker Spacek
Hammer Gorges
Gill Mara

When Markov is back

Markov Barker
Hammer Spacek
Mara/Gill Gorges

Amazing lineup

Also keep in mind we would have barker for 3 years at 3 mil per!!! worth it definitely

crawford and Niemi are both unproven... Halak has proved to be one of the best backups in the league and can share time with Huet (who we all know plays better when he plays less games)

I'm betting Montreal would have to take on Sharps 3.9 mil salary and throw in a pick 1st rounder and B prospect like David Fisher at the very least

To Montreal

Sharp 3.9 mil - 3 more years
Barker 3.1 mil - 3 more years

To Chicago

Plekanec 2.75 mil - 1 year the UFA
S. Kostitsyn 816 000 - 1 year then RFA
Halak 775 00 - 1 year the RFA
Metropolit 1 mil - 1 year then UFA
1st rounder in 2010 and 2nd rounder in 2011
David Fisher

Chicago takes on about 6 mil in salary but after this year they dump Metropolit so really they take on 5 mil. It's a 2 mil cap savings to help sign Toews and Kane plus with Halak they can dump Huet to any team that will take him to free more cap space.

Montreal gets a bit tougher down the middle with Sharp and gets the D they need to replace Markov. Problem is Montreal still would need to free up more space for when Markov returns.



New lineup

Cammalleri Gomez Gionta
AK47 Sharp MaxPac or D'Agostini
Latendresse Lapierre Moen
Stewart Chipchura Laraque

Without Markov

Barker Hamrlik
O'Byrne Spacek
Mara Gorges
Gill

With MArkov OH WOW!

Barker Markov
Spacek Hamrlik
O'Byrne Gorges
Mara Gill

I would wait a few weeks. See how the team does.

O'Byrne Spacek
Hamrlik Mara
Gill Gorges

That defense corps is not the end of the world but if Barker is really on the table I would still hesitate about trading away Halak.

How about Sergei, Weber & Carle?

Edit: Forget it....I forgot the hawks want to win right away.

It would be a dream come true for me, not to mention we would now have Markov-Barker and Hammer-Spacek + Mara as pp pairings in 4 months.

Oh I agree with you. But since the Hawks got two goalies that are eager to prove themselves, they've got options. If one fails, the other one will probably steal the job.

My point is: when you've got two young and cheap alternatives on your team, is the upgrade from those two to Halak (who's RFA at the end of the season BTW) significant enough to let go of a Cam Barker or a Patrick Sharp ?

Whether or not you put Sergei Kostitsyn in the balance, the answer remains no.

How on earth did McGuire get an interview for Wild GM when he proposes stuff like this?

No way on earth does Halak/SKost even come close to being enough for Barker??

As mentioned previously, Chicago has lots of RFAs next year and Huet is a big question mark.

It depends though. If Chicago wants to make a run for the stanley cup this year... they need proven goalies this year. With all the pending fa's, I think they want to make a run this year like we did last year.

I agree that if they were not contenders, halak would not be a necessity in the trade.

I heard this on the radio, I agree, Chicago is a good dance partner. We know they have to shed some salary & have big expectations this year.

Huet has been plain awful, that loss to the Swiss team was one thing, but it seems that the trick is to go high on him & you beat him every-time(Worked for FLA today), Halak is better for them. Also A-Kos is an old teammate of Kane & they worked well together.

Why would we lose him for nothing he's a RFA, at worst it will be for draft picks... good drafts picks, I might add.

Halak, I hope stays put, it's a luxury to have to great young goalies. Wait for his value to be at a all time high and then trade him (or Price) for the best possible assets.

I know the Hawks need to shed salary, but Barker is on a cap friendly deal. He is not the one they are looking to shed, and if he was to go - its gonna cost ya!

Subban Sergei and Halak

We should be able to get a D-Man from Chicago with our spares, that's the thing. Halak & A-Kos does seem to work, they're more desperate than we are... I'd still give it 2 weeks. Let them come back from Europe & suck getting time re-adjusted, maybe we can even get a better deal & get a big body also?
