Hayes and re-signings

Team: 2019-20 Chicago Blackhawks
Team Explanation
Next season cap:
9 million (already open) + 3.25 (Simmonds 1 year) + 925k (send one man down to minors).

That saves 13 million for Strome and Cat, which seems about right. crawford takes about the same he has now. Any other raises (IE Kahun about 2.5 million, Gus, etc.) will either be traded, or have someone like Murphy traded to make space.

Hayes is a solid piece and IMO it makes sense to sign him and draft the best player available at 3 OA - > Byram.

Next season, we trade Murphy (and possibly Gus) and make roster room for Beaudin/Boqvist/Krys/Byram... lots of D specs to take a spot, so that's gonna have to happen at some point.

I just put him to fill the spot, it could be any RW. Maybe someone like Thornton who will retire after the season, IDK. Just need someone on a rental IMO.

Not to mention we could trade them at the TDL for assets if we don't have a good position

This team looks familiar!!! I like it and agree with your comments. I'm fine with Simmonds. Maybe to @ChiHawk 's point...it could be a lesser cap hit? I just think the Hawks could use some physicality. I believe he'll take a 1 year term which is also pretty big in the grand scheme. Who knows, maybe he shines in getting another shot?!?! He's pretty decent defensively and takes heat in front of the net. With AA likely being traded...who else besides Toews does that on the Hawks team?

I think Gus will EITHER extend reasonably...2 year term $4M range. Or he gets traded. Stan went out on a limb for him giving that 2 year $1.2M deal. Even this site has most comments saying that was a bad signing. I personally want to play Slater more. He didn't get much time on this team, but somehow was still the on positive side for Corsi/Fenwick. For the amount of shots the Hawks gave up...that's kinda impressive overall. I'm happy Stan signed him. As for Forsling. I think it's time to trade him. Forsling has more upside than Slater, but that's what makes him tradable. We have a ton of D prospects far better than Forsling. Allow Forsling to grow someplace else.
