Reading many of these replies as well as other reports, I still hold out hope that Saad will sign his new contract on a bridge deal for the good of his team. Yes, on the open market he could demand $5+M. And he just might be worth that ballpark amount right now as a Blackhawk. But realizing he WILL get top dollar in two short seasons, for the sake of potentially being a four time Cup winner by then, I believe a "HTD" in the $3.5M range may be in his best interests at this juncture.
