We’re still here.
Unfortunately, the Hawks remain in a holding pattern while they wait for Antti Niemi’s arbitration hearing scheduled for Thursday of this week so there isn’t much to discuss. They did, however, manage to lock in Bryan Bickell for the next three years at a very reasonable $542k cap hit.
So there’s that.
Otherwise, nothing much is shaking. In the next couple days, we’ll have a review of the underwhelming Blackhawks Championship DVD up. By then, the Niemi negotiations will probably be close to wrapping up one way or the other.
