Now the truth... sources say Chicago #Blackhawks have signed goalie Corey Crawford to a multi-year extension. Announcement tomorrow
Might be some other news paired with Q getting an extension.

Can't say that he hasn't earned it.

F***in rights Crawfordd!!! You're the biggest beauty and you worked your nuts off for that contract. You're the champ and no one can take that away from you.

I have no idea what he could get, I'd say 3yrs/$4.25M.

he won two cups.

Anything under 5m would be a criminal steal.

He's only won one cup, but I get your thought process.

He deserves the contract just for that parade speech

I think he means that he was still on the team and served as a back-up

That's not true either. Crawford was in the AHL in 2009-2010. The backup was Cristobal Huet.

3rd string though. Name didn't get on the cup.

Edit: What he said ^

I still think he will get around $4.5M as an AAV.

Expecting this to be a very fair deal for the hawks. Going to guess 5x5.

Gonna be interesting to see the term/caphit he gets.

He had a good year, no doubt about that. But he's also been inconsistent year-to-year. Plenty of goalies put up one great year and then fade. I'd be hesitant to give a big money longterm contract without seeing back-to-back solid years out of him.

I don't see this as being true. Guy isn't that credible, and I think they would do Hjalmarsson before Crawford!

He'll get more than Jimmy Howard, but less than Rask.

Howard is maybe the best comparable for Crawford.

As a Hawks fan I love Crawford & thankful that he backstopped us to a cup, but he is not a priority right now especially with Raanta in the system. I would like to see how Crawford does this year(and also see what Raanta is capable of) before giving him the extension. Even then, anything over 5(either caphit or term) would be a mistake.

Would rather have the money go to Hjalmarsson, then Toews/Kane and future RFAs than Crawford. Just not a fan of giving goalies big money over big years, would rather roll the dice with Raanta or a bargain bin UFA 2014-2015.

I'd be shocked if he got more than Howard from the Hawks. He might deserve it, but the Hawks strategy typically isn't built around making the goalie part of the "core", and that type of contract would change that approach.

I'd rather give Cro a higher salary across fewer years. I just don't like the idea of signing any goaltender for more than 3 or 4 years. Ever. No matter what point in their career they're at
