Posted to Gorilla Salad's Play LandAccording to Chicago Tribune sports columnist Steve Rosenbloom the Chicago Blackhawks could be moving a “big name” player this off-season in order to fill some team needs as well as free up cap space to resign 88 and 19.
Rosenbloom suggests that Patrick Sharp (signed through the 2016-17 season at $5.9 million per year) and Brent Seabrook (signed through 2015-16 season at $5.8 million per year) are two big names that the Blackhawks could be shopping this off-season.

Rosenbloom suggests that the Blackhawks could be/should be going after a second line center. I agree they do need help there (they have for years), but some of the names suggested come at a high price. Joe Pavelski from San Jose (signed through 2018-19 season at $6 mil per year) and Ryan Kesler from Vancouver (signed through 2015-16 at $5 mil per year) both sound good but Pavelski is too expensive and Vancouver would want a King’s ransom from the Blackhawks for Kesler. Like Rosenbloom said it would be very hard for the Blackhawks to pull a good player from a Western Conference foe.
Never say never I guess but I would imagine it would be hard to trade your regular season goal leader (Sharp) this off-season, but anything can happen. If either of these two go my guess would be Seabrook.
