    For what it’s worth....

    Totally forgot about tagging. Thanks for clarifying. I think you’re right with the 9 and 7 million range for projections. Hope Dach is ready by 2020! Also, meant to post this in 2019-2020 thread.

    Hawks Moves 2018-2019

    https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2019/08/latest-on-patrik-laine-winnipeg-jets.html In an article about the status of contract negotiations with Jets’ Laine and Connor, I found this interesting from Craig Custance.... “Custance writes that several sources have suggested that the NHLPA has been involved in these negotiations, trying to get the players to wait and set an entirely new market for those coming out of entry-level contracts.” If this is the case, do the Hawks attempt to sign D-Cat and Strome to more tolerable bridge deals now or wait and see and potentially pay more into the season or next summer, especially if Strome proves last year’s production wasn’t a fluke?

    bits of fluff for the upcoming summer doldrums...

    Great mask. Great sentiment as well.

    Per Capfriendly, the 3.3M available is with a 20 man roster with 10 forward salaries. If you add Kubalik, Nylander, and Perlini at 1.5M you come in just under the cap...with 50G to spare. I’m guessing Stan, as he should with negotiating a “prove it” contract, is playing hardball with Perlini to get close to $1M as Perlini has no real leverage here. Any savings below 1.5M provides some wiggle room, albeit not much, to bank for in season. I did read somewhere a couple of weeks ago ( can’t remember source or link ) that as team needs to be cap compliant on opening day, the Blackhawks could keep de Haan on IR through the exhibition and season opener in Europe, which would provide some cap flexibility and allow him another week to get up to speed from injury before suiting up for the actual home opener.

    You may be right. From what I just read... “Performance bonuses are for players on entry-level deals, players older than age 35 on one-year deals, or players who have played 400 or more games in their career and spent 100 or more days on long-term injured reserve the previous year.” https://www.dkpittsburghsports.com/2019/06/17/nhl-signing-performance-bonuses-faq-tlh/

    https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2019/08/rfa-notes-tkachuk-perlini-pettersson.html Powers of the Athletic reporting that Hawks have offered Perlini $1M a year and he’s looking for $1.5M . If that’s accurate, I feel much better knowing he wasn’t looking in the $2M and up range. While I would hope the Hawks stand firm on a $1M “show me” contract, I could live with $1.5M total based on incentives such as +$250,000 for 40 games played and/or +$250,000 for 30+ points.

    [Speculation] Tweaked Jerseys

    Looks like the white jersey has a fanatic tag so not sure if this is legit or a knock off. I do like the whites with the new collar slightly more than the home reds. They’re both still a vast improvement over the orphan Annie collars.

    The Future of Trades?

    Great point! That would certainly dissuade other teams from making this the norm.

    The Future of Trades?

    That’s kind of when I saw this being beneficial as well to get one GM to bite on one-on-one contracts especially where one bad contract is even worse than the other. You may be right if trades with these types of conditions set for the conditional picks have happened before, but don’t recall an instance where the conditions of both players’ performance were relative to one another. I honestly don’t pay much attention to other teams news and trades though.....might be due to the boring season that I’m reading more league wide stuff.

    The Future of Trades?

    From the article above regarding the conditional pick in the Neal/Lucic trade.... “It took some time, even after the formal announcement, to reveal what those conditions were. The first, which is very specific but not unheard of, is that Neal must score 21 goals next season. The second is somewhat more convoluted: Neal must also score 10+ more goals than Lucic next season as well. By all accounts, a conditional pick transfer based on two players’ performances relative to one another has never before been attempted in the NHL. Yet, it has immediately turned some heads and has many asking whether this is the future of trading.” ^^^^While I posted this in the Around the League thread, I thought this idea deserved it’s own thread. I am absolutely fascinated by this becoming the norm someday.....specific benchmarks placed on players involved in trades relative to one another dictating the value of a potential conditional pick! This will make the “You be the GM” thread that much more interesting for sure! Interested in what you all might think. Could this really become commonplace in future trading?

Wish Stan could have gotten a conditional pick if Nylander doesn’t score more goals than Joker this season! 🤔

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports-saturday/2019/7/20/20699965/dylan-strome-blackhawks-paul-goodman-summer-offseason-training-workouts-balance-posture Interesting read about Blackhawks’ offseason conditioning program for Strome which should improve skating if he committed to it. “Standing tall at 6-3, but using a relatively short stick, Strome naturally has played leaning slightly forward. That has limited his vision — because his head was tilted downward toward the ice — and obstructed his movement. Goodman’s plan: put Strome on an offseason workout plan to strengthen his lower body and core, allowing his center of gravity to shift lower, enabling him to play fully -upright, despite the disparity between his height and stick length.”
