A Number that Intrigues me:  $8,400,000

C&B regular Mr. DeBakey has always been a big fan of offer sheets, much like The Copper & Blue is a fan of offer sheets.  His summer idea?  Nab Michael Frolik from the cap-strapped Chicago Blackhawks and pay only a 2nd round pick.

I haven’t seen Michael Frolik play very many NHL games.  But, as an Associate Member of the Decimal Point Diva Club of Edmonton, I’ve followed his career statistically.  I like him on paper.  Last night I saw him pretty good.

 

As of July 1, Frolik is a restricted free agent.

 

As of right now, the Black Hawks have $51,014,670 in Cap space committed to 8 Forwards and 6 defensemen for next year.  They need to sign two goalies and seven skaters for about $10,000,000, a $1.1 Million average.

 

If the Oilers offered Frolik $8,400,000 over 3 years, a Cap hit of $2.8 million:

  • Would he take it?
  • Would the Black Hawks match?
  • Would he be that capable two-way left winger for Horcoff and Hemsky?
  • Is he worth a 2nd Round pick in 2012?
  • Is he worth the Cap hit?

OK, good, next, what about a 1st Rounder to New Jersey for Zajac?
