With the recent signing of Andrew Shaw, the Hawks have an amazing 15 people on their roster tied up for next year. So, who isn't signed? Who has to worry? Who will go? Who will stay?
Brad Mills: Two way contract at best. If the Hawks re-sign him, I foresee 1-2 yrs/ 600k per
Ben Smith: If Benny keeps playing like he's doing, expect him to be re-signed. He is a solid contribution and I could easily see a 2 yr/ 800k per yr contract.
Brandon Pirri: The Hawks better re-sign him. He is proving to be a solid #2 center. What they have always envisioned. 2-3 yrs 900-1.1 per
Brandon Bollig: Okay, I must admit,...I'm a bit surprised by his play. I think he actually will get a 1-2 year ONE way contract 750k-900k. (Anything above 1.2m would surprise me).
Jeremy Morin: It appears J-Mo is in the doghouse. I hope that isn't the case. But, evidence would prove otherwise. If I was a betting man, I would say as of today, they don't sign him. They look to trade him by the deadline. I SO hope I am wrong.
Michal Handzus: Hurt much of this season, I do think this will be his final year. (Although they signed him for peanuts this season....so, who knows).
Nikolai Khabibulin: NO HOW,...NO WAY!!!
Sheldon Brookbank: Before this season I would have added the same sentiment I did for Khabibulin. Now,......ehhhhhhhhh,...not so sure. I think he's on the fence. I say NO,...right now.
Mike Kostka; The Hawks actually liked this guy before he got injured. However, he was a healthy scrath during the first few games. I also think Kostka is on the fence. But, I say YES,...2 yr. 650k per year.
