If You Can't Beat Us, Steal Us?

Oh no, panic time!  The Sharks have signed Hammer to an offer sheet of four years, 14 million!  In all honesty, I really don't think that's going to make the Hawks blink.  For those who can't count it breaks down to 3.5 a year, which is obviously high, but not ridiculously so.  I got the impression the Hawks were trying to get Hammer in for about 2.5, 2 was always a pipe dream, and this is only 1 million more.  Frankly, I'll be shocked if Hammer isn't matched.  That would probably grease Niemi's wheels out of town, but I know which one I'd rather have.
