Was Vegas a fluke?  Can Ovie defend a cup?  Will the Hawks bounce back?

I definitely think the Hawks can bounce back, but a big part of it is if Crawford is healthy.  Big if I get that.

Because when you look at the skaters, they did run into some bad luck and were good analytically and by the metrics.

Ovi sure knows how to celebrate a Cup win, that's for sure.  I hope the other Caps still get their time with it too

He deserves every minute with it.

I wouldnt count on Crawford coming back.  We need several pieces to be a real contender, hopefully they can make those moves.

Anyone reading this Ottawa story about Karlsson and Hoffman's wife/girlfriend?! Insane. And supposedly their GM likes touching young men inappropriately...

If the rumors are true, Crawford’s issues are going nowhere. The “Hawks want Darling back” whispers only back that up. No way a team that’s typically cash-strapped is taking on a goalie who makes $4M a year unless it’s to be the starter.

Hoffman and his girlfriend deny the allegations. The plot thickens...

So is this going to be another deal where we have to send a decent prospect along with Hossa? 

Not sure.  Could also be a deal where we take on a bad contract (specifically saw Darling mentioned) in exchange for Hossa's deal.  Could also be something to get a team to the salary floor.

When the Coyotes took on Pronger's deal, they also asked for (IIRC) Niklas Grossman. When Detroit traded Datsyuk's contract, they also had to deal a first round pick with it. So yes, I wouldn't be surprised if the Hawks had to trade a player or high pick with the contract in order to make it happen.

I realize the contracts like Hossa's werent given out in good faith and that something needed to be done to stop them from happening. But the contracts were legal at the time. The recapture penalty should have had a grandfather clause or something.

Good signings so far this week for Bowman signing Hayden and Hinostroza for 2 years each at a combined 2.25 million.  The draft and FA period is gonna make or break Bowman I think.

Ottawa just traded Hoffman to San Jose for peanuts. Had to be to seperate that fiasco but that org is a dumpster fire right now.

EDIT: check that, San Jose just shipped him to Florida now.
