The Third Contract: Dominik Kubalik

At 3.7 million for the next two years, I am sure you are wondering why Dominik Kubalik is on the list of the scariest Chicago Blackhawks contracts. Well, while Kubalilk is with the team for the next two years thanks to a bridge deal between the two parties, we have seen how those kinds of players end up doing with the team thanks to Stan Bowman dealing them in the future.

Artemi Panarin was traded with two years left on his contract and so was Niklas Hjalmarsson. If Bowman and company do not think Kubalik is going to be a long-term financial piece of this team they might be better off moving him.

The spooky thing about moving Dominik Kubiak is the fact that his sample size of NHL experience is so small. If Kuballik is dealt and comes out and plays poorly next year the Blackhawks would look like geniuses for dealing Kubalik while his stock is still high, but on the flip side if they deal Kubailk in the future and he plays great then there is a good chance the team would lose that trade in the eyes of the viewers.

Kubalik’s next contract and the uncertainty that goes around it makes him a spooky player on this roster. If he comes out next year and continues where he left off then the team is going to have a hard time getting him a big contract in a few years, but on the flip side if he plays poorly the team will be in a worse position.

It is Halloween! Enjoy the day and comment down below your scariest moment as a Blackhawks fan!
