Per Bob McKenzie, Tomas Kaberle (Montreal), Rostislav Olesz (Chicago), and Steve Montador (Chicago) are the only three players on buyout waivers today. They will clear tomorrow and then be bought out by their respective clubs. With these moves, Montreal and Chicago have used both of their compliance buyouts.
Vinny Lecavalier (Tampa), Danny Briere, and Ilya Bryzgalov (Philly) are...
On Monday afternoon, Rostislav Olesz was named the AHL Player of the Week. In four games, Olesz had seven points (four goals, three assists), including two game-winning goals, and was plus-six for the week. The post Olesz Named AHL Player of the Week appeared first on Committed Indians.
CBC’s Elliott Freidman says the new CBA doesn’t hurt Roberto Luongo James Mirtle explains the NHL’s salary cap could hit $90-million CapGeek.com tells us Rostislav Olesz would have a $2.25M cap hit if buried in Rockford this year. They also … Continue reading →
The most surreal aspect of Brian Campbell's return to Chicago as an opponent on Friday night is that it's even happening. His 8-year, $57.1 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2008 made him, perhaps, the NHL's most unmovable player when also factoring in his no-trade clause.
Yet the Blackhawks found a way to escape that contract, in this case "a way...
Need to shed some money to free up cap space? Have a big contract you regret? Why spend the time looking for a trade partner when you can just do what all the cool kids are doing and bury your managerial mistakes in the minors. It gives you the freedom to make bad deals, then have absolutely no repercussions if it doesn't work out.

from Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, With Rostislav Olesz and his $3 million-plus cap hit in the minors, Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman will have $6 million to $7 million at his disposal to improve his team, if needed.
“Give or take,” Bowman said of the amount.
The NHL’s never-ending rumor mill already was churning Friday, but don’t expect anything soon...
Circus Trip 2011 hits the Canadian Rockies tonight as the Hawks show up at the Saddledome for a date with the Flames. It also will mark the quarter pole of the season, which in some ways makes the season feel as if it's flown by and also indicates just how incredibly far there is to go.
The Hawks have injury concerns still. Brent Seabrook isn't going to play again, and would...
The two moves that I have been anticipating have finally panned out. This is part one of what I had hoped the Hawks would do, more on the rest later.
The Blackhawks placed Rostislav Olesz on waivers Wednesday. I saw this coming for a couple of weeks now. Olesz was acquired from the Florida Panthers in exchange for defense man Brian Campbell. He had no points and was a ...
Some stories have an ending so clear that you know what they are well before they get there.
The Rostislav Olesz story was one, as most fans knew at this acquisition in the Brian Campbell trade that he would end up off the NHL roster -- be it in Rock Vegas or on another team. That's why a lot were clamoring to buy him out when it only would have cost the Hawks $700K. But they...
Rostislav Olesz cleared waivers on Thursday morning and was sent to Rockford. In his place, the Blackhawks will reportedly recall Ben Smith from Rockford. Smith had 10 points (six goals, four assists) in nine games with the IceHogs this year. … Continue reading →

Olesz, 26, ap...
The Chicago Blackhawks waived left wing Rostislav Olesz on Thursday.
The seventh overall pick of the 2004 draft, Olesz did not collect a point in six contests and was a healthy scratch in 12 games this season.
"He didn't get a ton of opportunities," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said of the 26-year-old Olesz.
"His opportunity was limited but I guess sometimes...
On Wednesday, the Blackhawks placed Rostislav Olesz on waivers. In six games with the Blackhawks, Olesz had six shots on goal, zero goals, zero assists and was minus-one while averaging 9:06 in ice time per game. He was acquired in … Continue reading →
VANCOUVER, British Columbia --The Chicago Blackhawks placed Rostislav Olesz on waivers Wednesday.
Rostislav Olesz was acquired in a salary-dumping trade with the Panthers this summer. Brian Campbell took his enormous cap hit to Florida, leaving the Hawks with a player making $3.125M - less than half the cap hit for fewer years. But … Continue reading →
