Penguins interested in Hjalmarsson

According to sources within the Penguins front office, The Penguins are preparing an offer for Restricted Free Agent Niklas Hjalmarsson, The young Swede who just finished his first season on the Chicago blueline has long been a favorite of General Mananger Ray Shero, who was set to draft Hjalmarsson when the Predators traded their 4th round selection for LW Darcy Hordichuck in 2005.

The same source indicates the offer is to be for 5 yrs/17.5M and will necessitate the Penguins Sacrificing their 1st round draft selection

You need a provable source or this will be locked. I think Chicago might match that considering the term at a decent 3.5. At the same time, I doubt they even let him reach potential offer sheet status.

Ouch. If this is true, hopefully the Hawks make room to match or sign him before July 1st.

This would be amazing. Doubt it happens, though. Especially since I don't see a credible source here.

He will likely receive offer sheets unless the Hawks sign him.
29 teams recognize the Hawks are in a vulnerable place when it comes to cap room.

I'd be shocked if Shero did this though I'd love to get Hjalmarsson. 3.5/year would be quite a gamble to.

Hahaha and Eklund is credible? I figure this guy is at least as credible as Ek.....

besides its listed as speculation not as a rumor, as an Isle fan I hope Snow does it but not for a 1st

Not sure if the Blackhawks will be able to move enough salary around to match the offer sheets, but if there's any way they can this is obviously a players that they'd love to keep.

well that helps with chicagos cap situation a bit, and they get a 1st and a 3rd out of it

can the hawks really afford to match an offer like that?

Fake story. 3.5 million is entirely too much, and shero would never ever pay him close to 3.5 million. IF anything, it'd be a 2 million dollar offer so they only have to give up a 2nd round pick
