The Second Contract: Brent Seabrook

I mean I think we all know why Brent Seabrook is on this list for the spookiest contracts around. At 6.875 million, Seabrook’s contract is definitely one of the scariest ones on the team. Seabrook has been with the Blackhawks for a long time and broke into the league at the age of 20. He has spent his entire career thus far with the Blackhawks, and I would not expect that to change.

One of the scariest things about Seabrook is how much his game has fallen. He is not the player he once was when the team was winning their championships and Seabrook was being a leader on the defense. Even still, he still has a few years of hockey ahead of him.

The Blackhawks are going to have a tough time dealing Seabrook in the future thanks to his contract and how much his play has fallen. The scariest thing about Seabrook is the fact that he is not going anywhere. While Shaw can be placed on long term injury reserved or maybe traded at the deadline if he plays well, Seabrook isn’t going anywhere.

Not only is Seabrook not going anywhere, but his contract is also the longest contract left with the team as he is signed for the next four years. Seabrook’s contract will still be around after Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane pick up a new deal.
