Tallon Admits Mistake & Says Players Were Signed At Fair Market Value

from Tim Sassone of Between The Circles at the Chicago Daily-Herald, Blackhawks GM Dale

Tallon admitted Wednesday the team made a mistake getting qualifying contract offers to his restricted free agents on time but claimed the goof did not force them to overpay for Kris Versteeg and Cam Barker.

Versteeg and Barker signed three-year, $9.25 million contract extensions after earning $984,000 and $490,000 last season, respectively.

“I think that we got them at fair market value,” Tallon said. “When you compare the comparables, looking at the point production of Barker and Versteeg and all the other players, those numbers are right in line with what they possibly would have gotten in arbitration. We’re happy to get them long term.”
