Kuzmenko would help the Hawks get to the cap floor.

Kuzmenko would help the Hawks reach the cap floor next season, as they will have tons of cap space this summer to fill up. Furthermore, if he finds success in Chicago, he could easily be re-signed to a short-term deal over market value like the Hawks did with Foligno recently.

Davidson will get a chance to watch Kuzmenko up close Monday night.

With the Hawks traveling to Vancouver Monday, the front office will be able to get a good look at Kuzmenko to determine if he could be a fit on Bedard’s wing. Davidson already took a flier on a struggling Canucks winger in Anthony Beauvillier this season. Why not take a chance on another who has potentially even greater upside in Kuzmenko?
