Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Chicago Daily Herald,
The Hawks have a hole at first-line center with Michal Handzus likely to sign elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent. Handzus is looking for a four-year contract in the neighborhood of $16 million.
Tallon has said he won’t pay that much for Handzus, which would appear to be good business. Handzus is coming off major knee surgery and isn’t considered a premier offensive player.
“I’ve tried to get it done, but we have a Plan B,” Tallon said.
Several free-agent centers who could be of interest to the Hawks are Michael Nylander, Jason Blake, Robert Lang and Mike Comrie.
