Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!
When I woke up yesterday to write morning links there were the normal Chicago Blackhawks articles out there to add to the links, but the only one that disturbed me was the one about the Chicago Blackhawks packaging Teuvo Teravainen with Bryan Bickell to move the Bickell contract off of the Chicago Blackhawks salary cap books.
This of course might be just something floated out there by the Blackhawks to make a potential Bickell buyout not seems as bad which was pointed out to me by @HockeeNight yesterday, but as I said to him, I didn’t expect the team to part ways with Stephen Johns, Marko Dano, and Phillip Danault last year and make them part of deals either last year even if their talent ceiling isn’t as big as Teuvo’s.
This is the problem with the salary cap era, it’s not just assembling the best lineup, but it’s making sure you can structure everything from your superstars down to the last guy on the bench in such a way that it works on the ice and in the books.
The Chicago Blackhawks are considered a salary cap dynasty with 3 Stanley Cups in 7 years, but how much greater of a dynasty could it have been if they didn’t have to trade off pieces year after year to stay salary cap compliant?
I totally understand the talk of getting someone anyone to take Bickell, but just don’t have Teuvo be the throw in to make it work Stan!
