Created by: Danville1999
Initial Creation Date: Jul 27, 2021
Published: Jul 27 at 10:40
Team: 2021-22 Chicago Blackhawks
Team Explanation
Based on the CapFriendly math here, the Blackhawks could bring in Fleury and Johnson and still have a significant amount of cap space for tomorrow's FA period (if they wanted to use it) or have some cap space to give DeBrincat and/or Kubalik new deals.

Brandon Saad?
Then flip Strome and one of DeHaan/Zad for a top LD?

this team would definitely need to add a fairly capable LD and LW but man that was a pretty quick turnaround from that "were rebuilding" letter either way lol

There is a lot of cap coming off the books next year too. SURE, RFAs need raises, but DeHaan's $4.5M? No need for Shaw's $3.9M to be compliant Day one either...so $8.4M with those two.

That's why I wanted to create $10 million of cap space on this active roster. Jones' AAV goes up, DeBrincat, Dach and maybe Kubalik will need new deals.

Of course...this is all depending on Flower wanting to play next season for Chicago and McCabe being okay with $2 million AAV.

We literally gave you Borgstrom so you'd take Connolly's contract out of our hands. We have no interest in him. Plus Denisenko for a 4th liner?
