King Stan Bowman has found a way to get Artemi Panarin signed to a two year contract extension for $12 million. Panarin has been a great player since debuting last year and has been magic with Patrick Kane. I mean the play Kane made last night to Panarin and Panarin rocketing one short side, oh my.
It was a great signing by King Stan Bowman but now it will be interesting to see who will be on this team next year. With the expansion draft and which players will be picked in that draft. If you thought maybe a big contract will be taken in the draft that isn’t necessarily the case as most of the big contracts on this team will be protected and there won’t be any cap relief coming from the draft. So it looks like there will be a salary dump this year again by King Stan and the Hawks and old to familiar sight.
