2018 Blackhaws/NHL Off-Season Thread

Postby UMFan83 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:56 pm



Sounds like the Hawks will end up with a nice chunk of cap room... There are apparently more pieces and this could be a much larger deal.

No. But lots of trade targets.

So I guess we won't be getting much if any cap space back after all.

Holy hell does Stan like re-acquiring old Hawks.

Entwistle is a 2017 3rd round pick by Arizona, Maletta looks like AHL filler and Campbell at best a 3rd pairing defenseman.

I'm no expert though, just from 30 seconds of googling. Hawks should get cap space here.

For those too lazy to click on Jersey's link..



Hawks gave up a promising forward and a 3rd pairing blue line player and got back 4.65m in cap savings and minor league filler. Success of the trade is going to depend on how they use it.

Are there any educated guesses about what Corey Crawford's injury is? So weird that he's not 100% yet and hasn't even skated. Didn't sound too convincing that he will be ready to start the season.

I thought everybody assumed concussion issues and they more or less confirmed it a while ago.

That wouldn't work, because I would murder him before he boarded the plane from Columbus
