Chicago-Boston

Something based around Campbell + Crawford for Thomas?

Assuming Boston is one of Campbell's 8 teams, would something like this be a good deal for both teams? Looks like Boston could really use a good puck-moving defensmen and take a good run at the cup this year. Hawks could use a good goalie depending on the Niemi arbitration award, and save about 2 mil in cap space.

Not sure if Boston can take on the extra 2 mil in cap or if they have any other goalie for the backup role to Rask.

Maybe picks/prospects to balance out?

Flame On.

So you are trading away a top 4 defensemen with a bad contract for a top 4 defensemen? How is that fair again?

Oh and boston has about 500k cap space left with seguin and wheeler to sign so there is no way the bruins can take on salary at the moment.

I love Campbell, but we have next to no cap space, and unfortunately, neither does Chicago, so I don't see these two teams as viable trading partners.

Chicago MIGHT be willing to take a slight downgrade on defense to move the contract but his deal is really no longer an issue.
The Hawks have several highly rated prospects coming in (THN last year said the Hawks problem would be finding places for all the young talent) They will fill in for the role players moved this summer. The cap is going up ... When signed Campbell's money was over 12.5% of the cap that year this year it is under 12%. The cap went up 100k while the entire world was in economic crisis it has gone up 2.6 million this year while times are still bad. Projecting only 2.5m increases from here on out Campbell's money gets into the 10% range very soon. ... Too much? probably, but he is a top pair guy on most NHL teams.
Everyone said the Hawks would be moving talent for penies on the dollar and it didn't happen. Campbell might get moved but won't be given away. He was a very important of winning the cup, +11 playing with a broken shoulder. The difference between Campbell and Thomas is Campbell is a very good player who is too expensive. Thomas for Boston would be a true salary dump.

Boston can't take any salary back.

What would work is if Chicago would accept a salary dump from Boston like Ference that they could waive, allowing both teams to get under the cap. Something like Thomas + Ference + Paille + BOS 2011 1st for Campbell would be a deal I'd consider. Chicago knocks just over $1m off its cap after Ference is waived, and Boston knocks just over $1m off its cap as well.

edit: Maybe something else coming back from Chicago to even it out, but that's the basic framework that would suit both teams.

Why on earth would Chicago take Thomas with Huet's contract?

They're going to waive Huet to get him off the cap, and he will play in Europe (I believe? Hawks fans please correct me if I'm mistaken). If not Europe, then AHL.

This does beg the question, would the Hawks be willing to eat almost $8m in dead contracts with a Ference demotion? Given his role in the Kelly debacle, as well as his mediocre play and bloated contract, he'd be one of the few players who really "deserves" the demotion...

Nobody KNOWS what will happen but Huet himself is quoted as stating he met with Chicago and knows he is not in the plans moving forward. He said they (Hawks and his agent) were trying to find a taker in Europe because he doesn't want to play in the AHL.
Obviously Chicago would love to find a taker because even though he is off the cap he still costs 5.6 mill in money. If they could get a team to accept him paying any amount it is money in ownerships coffers.
