I've pulled myself out of a game before. Sometimes you know you just don't have it a certain day and don't want to hurt the team.

Grow up please.
Get your panties out of a bunch, please, and lighten up Francis. No one is wishing death and destruction on a biblical scale on people here.

Your reaction made you look like someone who needs to grow up far more than the person you replied to.

Salak will be making 600k no matter what.

Throw in the sweet paycheck he'll get from an SEL team, given his record there, and he'll be set.

Nope

Mutual termination of contract = No money to be paid out

I believe he went the complete waiver process thus he is no longer under contract with Hawks (Same type of waiving as Sykora a few years back)

CapGeek still has him as Non Roster player and I don't think it's possible for us to get his contract away. Salak will earn his money. He would be dump to accept less

Who cares if a guy is a rookie if he can play.

Holtby had played in 21 NHL games before these playoffs, then he went and matched Henrik Lundqvist in a series.
Actually, the last time they ran with a rookie as their #1 it worked out this way:



I wanted Salak to succeed.. but he didn't want to put any work into it and failed miserably.. I'm not going to miss him.

What's Salak's buyout penalty? Should be pretty cheap since he's under age 26.

Crawford almost single-handedly won that Game 7 despite the Hawks being outplayed by a ton.

Know another word for "almost winning"?

Losing.

That's not really the point, though. Hoss' post was painting Crawford's 10-11 rookie season in a negative light, which I'm sure we can all agree isn't very fair. He was solid throughout that entire season and was great against Vancouver in that series, especially in Games 6 and 7 where the 'Nucks dominated. The fact that the team in front of him wasn't particularly good isn't his fault.

I agree that throwing another rookie goaltender into the starting role for this team isn't a good idea. I'm only saying that the last time it happened (Crawford), he played pretty damn well.
Granted, he wasn't "thrown" into the spot by any means - he earned it by virtue of playing well himself and Turco being terrible. But I digress.

That Skille for Frolik and Salak trade didn't end up working out too well for Stan, not that Skille was worth anything. I'd take Skille at his current salary over Frolik at his and the Hawks are possibly stuck with Frolik taking up over $2 mil in cap space. Nice going Stan.

Skille is absolutely awful at everything

Frolik can PK and play competent defense

Frolik sucks and his defense isn't really good. Just because he sucks offensively doesn't mean he is good defensively.

Skille is of AHL quality. Frolik is a legit NHLer.

Frolik and his $2.3 mil cap hit is a total fail by Stan.

Not really, did you see what David Jones got?

Frolik makes 4mil in the next 2 seasons...easily tradable.

I'd love to add another lashing to Stan but I liked the deal, it was a bunch of nothing players, dump Fro ASAP and move on and bring more cap in, good hopefully.

Frolik at this point is a slightly overpaid "grinder" even though he doesn't really get physical. He's kind of like Trevor Lewis of the Kings...defensively responsible, PKer, good skater who plays on your 3rd or 4th line. If he could develop an offensive game he could be a 2nd liner.

According to CapGeek's buyout calculator, Salak's cap hit for 2012-13 is $112,500, and $100,000 for 2013-14.

Salak was bought out? Why should we do this?

They were at 48 contracts with Salak. Someone had to go, and his contract was an easy one to buy out. $100k for the next two years is nothing. We have 6 other goalies signed, and Salak had a bad attitude that they don't want around the kids in Rockford.

Re: Salak… Bowman said the G made it clear he didn't want to play in the AHL again, indicated he wanted to go. #Blackhawks


from Tracey Mayers

either way - you can't make a guy stay here that doesn't want to

Small update: Salak's contract was mutually terminated, so there was no buyout and therefore no cap penalty for him.
