Staying Handsome, Chicago

Anchorman-sharp_medium 

Ok, granted: Shooter’s five-year, 29.5 million dollar deal doesn’t exactly scream hometown discount. Then again, if the off-season FA frenzy and Weber’s arbitration award represent market trends, Sharp’s cap hit of 5.9 per might end up being league minimum by 2018.

No one save Kane or Toews is as lethal with time and space around the circles, and Sharp’s ability to diffuse tension in the room, especially the perpetual competitive simmer between Felix and Oscar, is a team asset worth its weight in silver.

There’s as much to like about this signing as there is to hate about the fact that it’s still August. Please kill all the time that’s fit to waste with these morning links…
