This thought was too long for 140 characters, but probably too short for a blog post. But fuck it.
Hjalmarsson re-signed for 5 years this morning. Take a look at the Hawks Cap Geek page.
Forget the idea of the “core”. The 2013-14 roster has potential to look almost identical to the 2014-15 roster. Crazy how little turnover there could be (barring trades).
Michal Handzus will almost certainly retire after this year. I imagine Bollig leaves as a UFA at the end of the season. Khabibulin will likely retire. Sheldon Brookbank?
Get used to this roster. Next season the only difference might be the 3rd line center, a face puncher, the backup goalie, and the 7th defenseman. Wowzers.
