They can still get to the POs without him, I'm not assuming anything in regards to him...

Chris Stewart just signed with St. Louis

1yr/3mil

Shows how much David Jones is over paid, Stewart would of got 5mil if he was still in Colorado.

Stewart was a RFA, Jones a UFA.

Jones = 4 years
Stewart will get his money next year

Apparently 7 teams have been reported to be interested in Nash and that the Rangers are the front runners.

I'm really not understanding the Nash to NYR stuff. The Rags would have to sincerely overpay for a guy that has done nothing to deserve it.

They'd be giving up a 1st, top 4 Dman, top 6 scorer, +...

CBJ would also become a much better team

I agree that Jones being a UFA plays a part, but Stewart is the better player by quite a bit. Also, since Jones is a 4 yr deal and Stewarts a 1, that should be even more reason for Stewarts to be higher.

no, that's the reason why it's low. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Stewart will be a UFA next year. He will get more than Jones got this year.

Jones was "market value". He would have gotten that from other teams too. Like Stewart as RFA.

TB trade for Lindback. DOH. Early bird gets the worm.

He's a goalie with great potential, that should have been on Stan's radar.

I highly doubt Nashville would have traded him to us, unless we offered some insane package.

Not sure you understand how restricted free agency works. No one gets a huge 1 year RFA deal.

This. Not every trade in the NHL is an indictment on Bowman

Nope! Bowman sucks and never should've done that! He's a terrible GM, doesn't have clue!

Surprised he signed for so little. He could have got a lot more than that if he waited 3 weeks. Must want to stay in St. Louis

You got that right. The hits just keep on coming. I can't believe what is happening to this franchise.

who are the free agents that would be better then getting oduya now...

Suter, Garrison, Wideman...all those guys are going to comand a lot more cash and theres no telling we could get one. What happens if you strike out on them...

there running very low. and when you bring up the cap hit, whats it matter if you save cap but have a worse player. You always talk about spending to the cap.

Right, pay one of Suter, Garrison or Wideman the price it takes to get them. They are all better than Oduya, all different price ranges and we have cap space to burn. Bowman blew his load on these resignings. I get that guys are getting resigned but like you said, still attractive options that haven't signed yet. May as well just give Wideman 5M for 3 years rather than Oduya 3.375M for 3 years. I don't think Wideman will cost that much but what's the difference? We have more than enough space to make up for the 1.625M difference.

The problem with Suter is Detroit is going to back the bank vault up to get him. They are screwed if he doesn't sign with them. I'd expect them to offer him 8 mil per if that's what it takes.

The best hope for the Hawks is what JJ said. He could buy a house in Barrington, and be within an hour of the UC and not much further from his hometown of Madison. Detroit can't compete with that.
