But what's the cap hit? I swear, if it's too high, we better fire Bowman.

I didn't know that Bowman is the youngest GM in the NHL. Makes the decision back in 2010 to hire him even more ballsy.

Can't believe they did this after he failed to trade for Derek Roy at the TD.

Did he negotiate it himself?

The ever essential piece is locked up, not Toews, not Kane, not Keith but the great Bowman, hope he continues to win Cups for this team with his amazing performances.

High praise considering that he can't even win one stinking faceoff.

Toews and Kane can not be extended until next summer. Keith is locked up until forever.

When was the last time you saw Bowman throw a hit? This team doesn't need anymore softies.

But I'm glad to have him around anyway. Great work, Stan. Few people have managed to bring your silver namesake to this city, but you've helped do it twice.

His glove side has been severely exposed.

one more good year from the hawks and he's pretty clearly a top 3 gm in the league IMO.

This is so right. GMs don't matter. It's easy, just start with a few great players, make some timely trades, stock the pipeline while drafting late to build a top 5-10 system, fire a bad coach for a very good one one and watch them win cups in the box with your suit on. You would have to be an idiot not to win two cups in four year and have your team with the best long-term outlook in the league

Can we really win another cup with Bowman as our starting goalie?

Bowman should trade for a legit starting tender like Sather or Nonis

Why can't you praise him? He has done a great job with this team since he's been here, whether it's re-signing guys, drafting essential pieces, trading for essential pieces, and not trading essential pieces.

He's a great GM, sorry you can't see that.

I wonder if Stan negotiated a pay increase for the next 3 years as well. I figured he wouldn't get too long of an extension since he was already signed for 3 years but he probably deserves something more than just an extension.
