I think I should have something to say

by Anne

There's been so much going on in the greater world of sports lately that I feel as though there must be something concrete to say about hockey...



Ummmm, I've got two things: The Blackhawks continue to be effed and Kovalchuk is still playing wishywashy with the Kings

As I'm sure you all know the Sharks signed Niklas Hjalmarsson:


To an offer sheet, four years/ $14 million. The Blackhawks matched and now have 15 players under contract with less than $150,000 in cap space. Now when I say, LOL I really mean it this time. It's SO RIDICULOUS. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?! I mean, even if they get rid of Huet, that'll give them like $5.5 million in cap but they'll only have 14 players under contract. That isn't even enough to dress a full roster for a game. Seriously: hahahahahaha.

There have been rumblings about trading Sharp. I can think of more than a few teams that would like to take him off the Blackhawks hands, the Sabres included. :D
Also, in news that's not really news, Ilya Kovalchuk is hanging out in LA college-recruitment style, it appears he will most likely be working out a contract while he's there, face to face with Dean-o. Everyone's plan is to come up with a contract that won't screw over keeping Dewey, Simmer, and (maybe) Quickie in the coming years. And as long as Matt Greene isn't traded, AMIRITE?

Matt Greene and his tongue thank you for your time:

  1. I'd be shocked if they traded Sharp. He's got an A, he's been with them from the bad old days with Papa Wirtz (I think he's been with them longer than anyone except Duncan Keith), and he's as versatile a player as can be. It would be a huge slap in the face to trade him at this point. I think they'd be more likely to drop Neimi, especially if he pushes too hard in his contract talks. He's good, he's had his moments, but he's not going to be a top shelf guy. And the Blackhawks are stacked at D for a reason, right?

    That said, I'd take Patrick Sharp in a heartbeat. And it would be great if the Sabres could get him too.
