    Do you guys know the salary cap impact of today’s trade?

    Finally a real “Wednesday Night Rivalry” unlike last week. I hope Kampf buries the puck tonight. He deserves a goal for all his hard work lately.

    Do you guys know the salary cap impact of today’s trade?

    Panik – $2.8 mil this year and next
    Dauphin ELC – $745,000 (but in minors so $0) (then RFA)

    Duclair – $1.2 Mil this year (then RFA)
    Clendening – $650,000 (but in minors so $0) (then RFA)

    Net = Hawks relief of $1.6 in Salary. Probably closer to par in actual money paid out to the players for this season. Next season would be a savings of 2.8 if Duclair isn’t signed

    The Hawks save about $1.6M against the cap and acquire Jurco pt 2

    If Clendening goes to Rockford,$1.6 million

    Apparently, all goalies are Vikings

    Believe me I’m no fan of Bowman with the Panik deal being another bad one. But at least he’s gone and cap relief hopefully next year. Meanwhile Jurco another bad move by Stan is still here…yuk. And while they’ll get more cap savings is this team really a buyer at the deadline? I can’t see it with the way this team has played this season.

    So is that a salary – more to come trade – or a hockey trade?

    Good question

    But Duclair is still only 22, and he does have a lot more to give than Jurco. Looking back a few weeks, there was a tweet that someone wrote about how Panik shouldnt even be on the Hawks and Ryan Hartman had “liked” and maybe had even retweeted it? He quickly deleted the tweet. That was telling and I thought it quite interesting. Makes sense now if Panik wasnt a tight fit in the locker room.

    Im more bullish on Duclair than I ever was on Panik.

    But the big win in this one is ADAM CLENDENING! HES GONNA BE ALL-MIDWEST IN THE AHL MY FRENTZ

    A couple of weeks ago there was some back and forth, silly talk from me and others about trading for Karlsson. But if you are a dumb GM, and you have a guy who will be a UFA and you know you dont want to give him 100M contract, would you be stupid enough to trade him for a guy like Seabrook, who has a ridiculous contract, but is still relatively serviceable and who would give you a veteran defender with cost certainty, albeit expensive cost certainty? I mean, it would be epically stupid, but perhaps might make sense in a parallel universe sort of way. NHL GMs do stupid things like trading Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson.

    Hm. Panik wore out his welcome with another team? Shame. Decent and useful player for crunching guys on the forecheck and swatting rebounds. Lack of playmaking ability was getting frustrating tho. No big deal.

    Duclair… reclamation project or chip to get a bigger piece?

    Power play back in the toilet. One game vs a bad hockey club does not a decent power play make.

    You know who’s having a nice game so far? Michal Kempny

    the PP will never be “good”, the opposing PK will just occasionally be “awful”

    I’m at the game with m daughter. Is there a reason I’m seeing so much Kane Wingels and Bouma?

    Just double shifting Showtime?

    Or??

    yeah, trading Panik this afternoon left a hole in the lineup
