Hawks in the market for a skilled forward plus Bulin

Quote:
The Hawks are talking to representatives of goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin and are in the market for another offensive player. If all goes as he hopes, Tallon could be done shopping Friday, with the remaining roster spots filled with young players from Norfolk.

"We're in pretty good shape," Tallon said. "We have [cap] room, and we're still in the hunt for a couple of top-notch guys."

One of those "top-notch" guys certainly is Khabibulin. Among the skilled offensive players still on the market are wingers Paul Kariya, Ziggy Palffy and Teemu Selanne

The Hawks have $24.1 million committed and are looking to start the season with a payroll between $35-37 million

Before the lookout Chicago had a clear intention to add a Top6 forward via free agency. I think that Kariya, Murray & some other guy were mentioned.

Well...Kariya is still on the market.

According to some media people in Tampa, Nik has a multi-year deal on the table for what is believed to be between $5,000,000-$6,000,000 a season. You'd have to think that the Hawks would have offer more or Tampa would match.

See the stream I started earlier. Tim Sassone of The Daily Herald is the best (and only) local media source for Hawk news and he says they already have on offer out to Kariya.

Maybe these two threads should be merged.

Per today's St. Pete Times:

Quote:
But the Lightning might be working on another offer as other teams drop out of the Khabibulin sweepstakes. The Blackhawks and Coyotes are believed to have backed away. The Penguins, Canucks and Red Wings remain interested, but don't appear willing to offer the $7-million a year Khabibulin is seeking.
More than one surprise there, I was unaware the Canucks were in the picture. Anyway, it's the first semi-"encouraging" news for Bolts fans on the Khabibulin front...

Those figures first showed up on TSN, not in the local press. I don't know where they got them from.

Interesting, I hadn't heard that either. I love the guy, but if he wants $7 million, let someone else be the sucker to give it to him and start signing some of the other guys. This holding pattern is getting annoying.

Seriously, Sassone and The Daily Herald is the only hockey coverage in Chicago that is worth a darn, its pretty sad when a suburban paper trumps the Chicago Trib and Times, both of whiches hockey coverage (or lack of) are an embarassment.

Low person on the totem pole at the paper gets to work the Hawk beat.

I LOVE how all these teams kept saying they could barely afford a payroll above $30M and it looks like about 24 teams will be between $35 and $37

I wonder if they're basing their payroll on projected revenue sharing?

From what I understand the revenue sharing provisions of the new CBA are a joke. Even if a team participates in the revenue sharing, supposedly it won't do much more than cover the $2 million per team lost on the ESPN deal.
