I more meant in terms of the cap hits to forwards rather than overall situations. I do agree with where you're coming from.

As a side note, it will be interesting to see how much Stamkos commands. The Lightning can sign him to an extension next summer.

filling out their ranks with inexpensive youngsters will be the key and they've had success doing that in the past.

They also have guys like Saad and Shaw that will be in line for raises in the not too distant future, but yes, (more)

Definitely. I just mean that while it's true other players will make more, Kane/Toews will still cost the Hawks more cap wise.

All that said, I'm not dismissing the possibility that the Hawks can make this work. It's challenging, but their hands aren't tied.

Plus, the more risky signings like Bickell will hit harder now and there's still the matter of Hossa, signed through his 42nd birthday.

This isn't just about Kane/Toews. Hawks are now in the same position the Pens are in that they're top-heavy in terms of forwards cap hits.

Just a couple more thoughts: There's an assumption that the NHL cap will continue to climb at a healthy pace, which isn't preordained.

My first thought is that the Hawks will have a difficult time winning the Cup once Kane/Toews' cap hits take effect.

Nashville's inability to land a top center will be felt even worse now that they've lost Fisher. On the plus side, they got Jokinen.

Orpik is by far the most popular choice for worst signing, but best signing is a close race between Ehrhoff/Richards:
