Blackhawks aiming to hold on to Artemi Panarin
CHICAGO - The future of the left wing Artemi Panarin has become a great scenario for the Chicago Blackhawks, with a remaining season on the entry-level contract of 24-year-old.
Panarin, who won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year the NHL last season, could become a restricted free agent July 1. The Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday that Panarin seeking a six-year contract worth of $ 36 million.
The Blackhawks Jersey have faced similar situations the past two offseasons with Brandon Saad and Andrew Shaw attackers; each time, they exchanged restricted free agents waiting rather than negotiate a new contract. They would like to avoid this option with Panarin, who had 77 points (30 goals, 47 assists) in his first NHL season, playing mostly on a line with Patrick Kane, the winner of the Hart Trophy as MVP of the NHL.
"We are always confident," said Bowman. "You go into a negotiation expecting to get a deal done. That's the way I've been in the past, and that's the way I am now. I respect [Tom Lynn]. He is a guy very well. I know Artemi put a lot of faith in him, and Tom and I will work to do something. "
Panarin had a goal and an assist in four games for the Russian team in the Hockey World Cup 2016 in Toronto. He achieved all his performance bonuses NHL last season, which made its contract of $ 3,387,500 and caused the Blackhawks to count $ 2.575 million of it in the surplus bonus to their salary cap this season.
In the future, Chicago may have a hard time Panarin sign an extension is reportedly much as he wants. They have about $ 2.4 million in salary cap space projection, according to General Fanager, and before Kane (average annual value of $ 10.5 million), Jonathan Toews Jersey ($ 10.5 million), Marian Hossa (5,275. $ 000) and Artem Anisimov ($ 4.55 million) signed through at least the 2020-21 season. Defenseman Brent Seabrook heads for the first year of an eight-year contract with a wage bill cap $ 6,875,000.
Bowman did not file on time for the negotiation process with Panarin.
"We have done many different ways," said Bowman. "We signed guys in season, before a season [and] at the end of the season. There are no hard and fast rule. Every negotiation is different, so I would not put schedules or disability in one way or another. it will be done when it is done. "
Until then, Bowman will focus on the Blackhawks this season. After negotiation or decide not to re-sign several veterans over the past two years because of the salary cap problems, Chicago is looking for prospects to fill vacancies in the front.
Bowman chose not to bring veterans to training camp on a professional test offer. A group of attackers that includes rookie Vincent Hinostroza, Nick Schmaltz, Tyler Motte, Ryan Hartman, Tanner Kero, Mark McNeill and Kyle Baun will have the chance to do list during the preseason.
"The guys we have are those who are here, and I think our team is going to come from this group," said Bowman. "We only had a few days of camp here, but I think so far it has been a promising start for these guys. They are all full of energy [and] full of excitement, knowing they have a chance to make the team. "
