Kukla's Korner Hockey

The issue the Chicago Blackhawks have in re-signing Martin Havlat is that the full horror of the salary cap world will be upon them in 12 months.
Probably the ’Hawks have room to pay Havlat full value for next season, but it would be salary cap-hurtful to give Havlat a full value deal that extends into the 2010-11 season.
In the summer of 2010, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith will all be restricted free agents looking for a big raise. Andrew Ladd’s contract also expires that season.
