That's your core there, fill in the rest with either young, relatively cheap rookies and/or veterans wanting to sign for cheap and play on an exciting young winning team.

I'm sure there are a few others you would keep too, but those are the main ones I think.

Yeah probably. It becomes tougher from here on in though with Kane, Toews and Keith off ELCs obviously, the playing field starts to become levelled with their talent level vs the rest of the West/league, and they still have to move Huet and Campbell to get 21 players under the cap.

They have 14 right now at 57, so 7 players, 2 million with no space for injuries. Amazing...still a long, long, long way to go in Chi-town.

Wow, yeah they aren't even close. Even rookie contracts as they know can run you $3M with bonuses.

For sure Huet has to be off their cap one way or another, and I think Campbell, but they are going to have to start giving players away. I wouldn't be doing any favours. While I think Atlanta did well for themselves for what they got, I suppose they didn't need to give up that much considering the predicament Chicago is in. I suppose when it comes down to Atlanta or other options, they felt they needed to offer up more.

TSNBobMcKenzie Chi-Atl trade still not official. This from Atl management: "There is no trade yet." Is it trade call logistics?

Hmmm... wonder if this is even going to happen? Going to be lots of embarrassed people if this turns out to be false.

TSNBobMcKenzie One unconfirmed report suggests Atl would be over 50-contract limit with trade and needs to shed a contract. That is just spec tho.

Well we now know where Emery is playing next year Laugh1

I was going to say him, but I don't think he will ever play again, at least not professionally.

It is my understanding Chi-Atl trade hold up is indeed because Atl would have 51 contracts with trade. Atl has to move a contract first.

Or I suppose they could back Aliu out of the deal for now and move him later in a separate transaction once Atl moves a contract.

That's almost exactly how I feel about the trade as well right now.

I float the idea of Foligno for Versteeg again.

Looks like ATL has to move a contract... they'd be at 51 with this one... that's the hold up.

Lots of teams in the league besides Chicago to dance with.

Apparently Atlanta and SJ have a deal and now the other deal is official.

Someone said Vernace [i]and[/i] Sterling and a 7th to SJ for futures. I believe it's official now.

Updated the first post. Added Joey Crabb to the package going to Chicago and included the SJ deal. Thanks Spez
