    This helps Chicago knowing they got this kid signed. They can now focus on their needs.

    Great contracts. Turns into an absolute steal or anywhere in-between to a normal deal.

    Absolute zero risk contract. Delia had been unreal since being called up. Went from ECHL to NHL in about a year. Love that we got three years out of him especially not knowing what will happen with Crawford this allows maximum flexibility to explore other options if he doesn't pan out in either a starter or backup role. If he takes over the starter role then it's going to be a laughable bargain

    Not going as far as to say that Q had an equal share of voice in personnel moves but if anything it's clear Stan at least operated in a way that much of his past decisions were influenced by what Q wanted and Q preferred

    Not all great players make great coaches (Gretzky). Not all great coaches make great GMs (sather).

    This isn't an expansion draft signing right? Since Crawford might not be healthy

    No. He’s most likely who they think their future #1 is...although they probably considered expansion draft for a “if he doesn’t pan out” scenario when making it 3 years

    Always nice to see a guy from California make it, even if he does play for the Hawks. Should nickname him the Rancho Cucamonga Kid.

    Stan raising his game. Now if he can trade Saad for Panarin, all set.

    this is a SAFE signing for the goalie position. still alot of unanswered question about Delia, but the main one is, the org could not let him go, period !!!

    the off season and next yr will need to sort themselves out, but with ref to the goalie position, Delia will show if he is truly a #1 goalie or at best a backup.

    as a fan of the Bhawks, i love this signing.

    Safe signing.. More likely to turn into a steal down the road forsure even if he is a full time backup

    Panarin isn't coming to the Hawks, as they're going to have to spend 12-16M of their available capspace in 2020 on Strome and DeBrincat. The downside of Strome living up to 3OA status is that they don't get Panarin back. If they moved out Saad and Anisimov, that would get it done but it would also gut their 3rd line.

    Unreal signing.. love this.

    Going to be a starter making backup money at some point during this because he has come in and been an absolute beauty.

    Delia is showing absolute trust in the Bhawks org and that they will do the right thing.... what ever their hand shake deal is.
