    Since this question will inevitably be asked: the cap hit of Raanta with the Hawks + Khabibulin buried in the minors/overseas is exactly the same as Khabi's full cap hit. It's $1.7 million either way.

    Teams are still able to send players down, but their salary is only covered up to a certain threshold. I forget the exact number right now.

    It's 925K. Provided Raanta doesn't hit any bonuses, it's the same cap hit. I know he hasn't played well, but Khabi at his cap hit together with Raanta's was a shrewd move by Bowman. Had an exact budget planned for the backup spot no matter who it was at a given point.

    Seems like fate that Steeger's first game back with the Hawks is in Music City.

    I was going to say pretty much this exact thing. Bowman knows that he can spend right to the cap, and so he engineered those contracts in such a way as to make them essentially risk-free. If he isn't a finalist for GMOTY, then the voters are simply braindead.

    Just noticed there is a YouTube of a Versteeg singing in a cowboy hat and I didn't include it in the original post. LOL.

    Should be interesting with Khabibulin on net... hopefully after the game we're not complaining that we didn't just give Hutton a shot. Excited to see how Versteeg looks and track how my favorite non-Hawk prospect in a while in Seth Jones does against our squad.

    Best part about the Versteeg rap video is Kane leaning on the rail drunk as a skunk.

    So Steeg is in the first line and Brookbank is a 3rd line forward again?

    Hopefully Hossa will be able to make it for tomorrow's game against the Sharks. Big early season test.
