    Free Agency Thread

    Free Agency opens up this Friday afternoon. Here are some links. If the Blackhawks do make a UFA signing, feel free to create a new thread about it. If Stalberg, Emery, Rozsival, etc sign elsewhere then post it in here. Also, feel free to post any signings that happen with players that the Blackhawks could have been after. Post thoughts on players you would like to see the Blackhawks sign and let the discussion begin!

    9.5 mil in cap space according to capgeek.com. Think we resign most of our RFA and UFA and have enough left over to either get a filler for line 2 center or we bring in some guys for depth.

    I would love to give a 1 or 2 year deal to Patrik Elias with Handzus cap hit of 2.5 mil. Guy can still produce at very high level.

    Flyers, Bruins, Leafs, Ducks, Stars and Blues are all apparently very interested in him... someone is going to overpay for him you can bet on it!


    Looks like a guy like Derek Roy may be more likely...

    Blues immediately came to mind for Briere or Lecavalier. They've needed another Top 6 scoring threat and they're thin in the middle of the ice, now especially with the recent retirement of McDonald.

    Good deal for the Flyers, unforunately now that he's in that orange uniform I have to hate him.

    I wouldn't hate this move if he'd be our 2nd line center on a 1-year deal. Having said that, it's Eklund, so it probably won't happen.

    In defense of his contract and some disliking it I could see bickell becoming atleast a 50p per season player. He exploded in the post season but a lot of people out there dont realize is he had very similar season to the top PWF FA on the market. Here lets play a little game, guess who:

    6'4 230 LW. In 46GP 7G 20A 27p 8+/-...Played line 1 most of year.
    6'1 200 RW. In 48GP 15G 9A 24P -6+/-....Played line2 most of year.
    6'4 230 LW. In 48GP 9G 14A 23p 12+/-....Played line 3 most of year.
    6'2 215 RW. In 43GP 13G 9A 22P 1+/-....Played line 1 most of year

    Interesting note, 2 players of the 4 are on the same team, same line.

    Already answered this question in the other thread. Lucic, Clarkson, Bickell, and Horton.

    Nice Leddy signing, still have not seen the cost yet of the contract. Two years, that also means he is going to very marketable if needed.

    TFP has the Hawks interested in Roy. If we get any 2C option I pray that it's Weiss, or give Pirri the shot

    I read on bleachor report that the hawks were looking at ribeiro. But I agree with you, Weiss would fit in more. But depending on the amount the hawks are going to their free agents, the best bet is that they are just going to go with pirri
