Nobody will buyout Seabrook anytime soon. If he gets bought out this season his cap hit will still be at over 5m in the 2023-2024 season. His contract is one of the worst in the league right now, you will have to add a big sweetener to get a team to take him especially considering how much his play has deteriorated already at age 34.

Why would the Hawks sign DeBrincat to such a high dollar value and buy him out of his restricted free agent years and not get extra term? That isn't how that works.....Debrincat by playing early has gained unrestricted Free agency 1 year early.....meaning he has another 5 years of restricted free agency. The next 5 years are worth 20 million total...if you think he's a 10 million dollar player afterwards than you add another 3 years at 30 million....which is a 50 million dollar contract for 8 years....or 6.25 million a year. Even at 12 million for 3 years is 7 million AAV, 14 million is 7.75 AAV. Anything over 7 million for 8 years is an over-payment. Otherwise sign him to a 4 year 16 million dollar deal and buy him out of 1 year at the end...Does that make sense?

i dont think a 40 goal scorer is getting less than 8mil, no matter the term. i personally would like to see him at 8.5mil over 7-8 years. if a few RFA's get over 9mil you know he will be saying he deserves that. i think the strome signing is pretty accurate.

also seabs is not going anywhere for at least another 2 years, then maybe a team could eat it.

If Lehner is even close to as good this year he will get 6mil AAV X 4-6 years. Either with Chicago or elsewhere.

Here’s an idea: throw dach into the seabrook trade. Maybe the return will be semi marginal.

For the record, being totally serious about that.

I just read your post about not liking Dach. i was also surprised by the pick, but he is growing on me every time i see him play, or even talk. he is a leader, and when Toews takes a step back i hope Dach, and Strome are our top 2C. on that though Strome does not deserve a gimme as the top2C. he was a lost cause in Pheonix. he has had 3-4 great months with Chicago. lets calm down ,and wait to see what he can do for a full season. i hope great things.

You know what, you are right....I was trying to find the perfect example of buying out restricted free agency and getting extra years (trying to prove my point)...and I found the perfect comparable (which went against my point...haha)....the hated Vladimir Tarasenko. His 8 year deal at 7.5 Mill in 2015 was 10.27% of the cap when it was signed....he just completed a 73 point season (very similar to DeBrincat). So a similar 8 year deal for Alex would be 8.37 AAV for 8 years or almost 67 million total.

I’ll put it this way: let’s say dach actually becomes 1C for the hawks. I doubt it will matter, but I’ll bite and say he does. The hawks picking dach still meant that if the hawks got better, the Avs became ridiculous! I just said this, and I’ll say it again: “I’ll bet dach never wins a cup in Chicago because he can’t beat byram and the Avs.”
