There has to be more coming.  Murphy only makes 250K less than Hammer so this does nothing to ease the cap problem.  Either way, it sucks to lose Hammer but let's see what else Stan has up his sleeve.

people from other fan bases will never be aware of what nik hj meant to this team.

this sort of thing is the bad part of cheering for any sports team.

Well, he is a smooth skater, blocks shots and is a right handed shooter.

Oh, and he's much younger.  I've been seeing some signs of wear and tear on Hammer lately.

What with departure of Hossa, I'll bet the Hawks are thinking more along the lines of a "quick rebuild."

I totally agree.  It isn't enough that Hossa's gone.  Now this?  It's heartbreaking even if it might be the right thing to do.

OMG, I'd give Panarin for Saad in a NY heartbeat.

Me too, I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. I hope that comes to fruition -- would be so fantastic to get the man-child back with Toews again; that line would be monstrous.

Maybe they send AA there too with Panarin and somehow get Duchene. Now I'm dreaming.

That blows! My two favorite players gone in 24 hours! Where is the 7th pick in all of this?!

Best they could do?  A 7th pick surely would have cost a lot less.

I guess the Saad deal for Panarin is official according to Bleacher Report.

I hear ya! 81 and 4 are my favorites as well.  Really rough pill(s) to swallow.

I can live with that one........and I had to be reminded that Saad is younger than Panerin.

Saad is essentially a younger replacement for Hossa.

Murphy is essentially a younger replacement for Hammer.

Any other info on the D man we're getting in return? He played all year with the Coyotes last season. When Hammer and TvR gone and Seabs and Keith getting up there in age they definitely needs to be some youth on the blue line that is NHL ready.

Other guy is a young center whose had some NHL experience.

It's official! This makes the sting of Hoss/Hammer much less, at least for me. The man-child is back!

 

So full deal: Panarin, Motte and 6th Rd pick this year to Columbus for Saad, Forsberg and 5th Rd pick 2018

Stan!  I didn't know you had it in you!  Wow!  That's a super gain.

Yes, I absolutely love it.

Maybe next time Panarin will try as hard in the playoffs as he did to gain his bonuses (sorry, had to be said).
