I think that's just above what the Hawks were looking for. It's going to be a stretch to keep him. Turco for 1.5 or Niemi for 2.75?

Under 3 mill he stays. Hawks offered him that much and Niemi turned it down pre arb.

I'm not sure if 2.75 is a reasonable number for them. It's a very slight overpayment... but for a team in as much cap trouble as the Hawks, that is exacerbated exponentially.

I think Turco at 1.5 and a defensemen would make more sense...

We offered him $3 mil? Was this before or after the Hammer offer sheet?

2.75 is pushing it. I say the Hawks walk and sign Turco. Gives more breathing room.

Hawks can't afford him. Only if we trade Sharp, Bolland or Campbell.


But Hawks will not walk away.... at this CapHit, we can trade him for something

The Hawks supposedly offered him a 3 year contract with a ~$2.66 mil cap hit so i'd guess they can squeeze to $2.75 million.

It's so difficult to compare goalie contracts and justify them. On one hand you have Tuukka Rask and Jonas Gustavsson making less than $1.5M and on the other you have Jaroslav Halak making over $3.5M. I guess Niemi's fits right in between, but why?

Rocky Wirtz said today they are eating Huet's contract. He's not on the team.

Seems like a pretty fair deal, seems like the arbitrator came down in the middle of the two valuations or maybe leaned a bit towards the Hawks.
