Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,
Apparently one of the reasons why the Blackhawks and Martin Havlat haven’t yet agreed on a new contract is the length of the deal.
According to a source, the Hawks’ initial offer to Havlat was for a one-year contract. It’s not known if the team has moved off that negotiating position.
Havlat likely would receive a multiyear deal should he reach unrestricted free agency on July 1.
Signing Havlat for just one year would assure the Hawks of having more money to spend next summer when Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane are up for new contracts.
