wow, only a 1-year deal.

I’m surprised Chicago couldn’t get better term (or offer a better AAV, if you will). I think they’ll regret this next summer.

Bob McKenzie via Twitter says deal is for $1.5M and mentioned this too….

Kruger’s objective is obviously to take short-term hometown discount in order to stay in CHI. At end of this season, he’s one year from UFA.

must be expecting Kane’s cap hit to go away…otherwise how do they get 2 more roster players with only 919k of cap space left? where’s the injury I am not accounting for?
