Hawks reached a contract extension with Coach Q, will announce it at press conference tomorrow at 3pm.

This was a given wasn't it? Well deserved.

I don't have the link handy, but I was reading yesterday on ESPN Chicago about how Brandon Saad may shift to center on the second line this fall.

Hammer is a distant 3rd behind extending 19 and 88 next offseason.

No he isn't since they have both of them signed for another year and Hammer whose contract expires was the second best D through out the year.

True, but the way it looks money is gonna be REALLY tight to extend both, meaning that someone we want to keep we probably won't be able to afford to keep. With that in mind, and especially with Crow just getting a huge raise, we have to be able to find the money for the increases Toews and Kane are sure to get from someone with a pretty high salary already. As far as the highly paid guys on the roster go, who is more expendable? I'd hate to lose Hammer but not as much as I'd hate to lose guys like Sharp, Seabs or Bickell, and unless they use a compliance buyout on Hossa next offseason (which they could) he's essentially untradeable with that deal. We're a lesser team if Hammer leaves but his level of importance to the team is obviously far less than that of Toews and Kane. To me it was always gonna be either he or Crow, and clearly that decision has been made.

So much for your worries:

The other day I saw commercials for hockey preseason games starting up in like 3 weeks....I was like Shocked

Can't believe it's about to start all over again. Think we dominate again this year or will we regress a bit? It's amazing how different this offseason was compared to the last time they won the cup. Instead of trading everyone away we're locking them all up long-term, save for Frolik and Bolland.

Can't wait to see the Hawks...and I'll actually be able to see them in Iowa this year.

These extensions just don't stop coming in - GM Stan Bowman now gets a two-year extension.

8 more days till they take the ice at the UC against the Caps. Can't believe this offseason went by so fast (I guess that happens when the season doesn't start in February).
