Good work, Bowman. What happened to the notion that it was impossible to do anything because of the cap?????

Had bowman woken up at 9 am instead of 340 we'd have signed Stastny for that price

Almost the definition of low risk/high reward. If he stinks, oh well, relatively cheap rental. If he's great, it's a steal.

Not happy. Didn't want Richards.

Contract is just fine. Just ugh at Richards.

Not happy about the player himself. But the contract isn't a bad one.

Comes with a NMC.

The definition of low risk/high reward. Gives us a chance to ease TT into the NHL nice and easy.

But will it be enough to satisfy HF Hawks fans? Only time will tell.

They played it well by waiting. Good stop gap signing and only minor cap trade of steeger, rozy, oduya (doubtful) or leddy needs to go now

Oiler fan here, just tipping my hat. We have to **** out money just to fill up our 3rd line and Chicago can sign legit players for dirt cheap. Awesome job, Chicago. I am in total envy.

Stan Bowman's new name should be

STAN OHMANNNNN!!!!!

You da man Stan Bo!

I was expecting nothing but Richards is a nice consolation prize especially at that term...I can live with him coming in on one year and trying to re prove himself over some ridiculous 3-4 year deal most of these guys are signing.

Are we forgetting how terrible Richards was in the playoffs. He has certainly lost a step. Handzus 2.0 minus the faceoff and PK skills
