Found June 28, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
Follow me @jaeckel Not good. Not bad. Right now, no news with the Chicago Blackhawks means just that. I am hearing that the Rick Nash "Sweepstakes" is holding up a lot of the trade activity that might be going on right now, including with Ottawa, a team the Hawks might well be waiting on. The Hawks have spoken with 10 teams (or more) about defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson—so if there i...

5 free agents the Chicago Blackhawks should look at.

I’m just taking a look at the Blackhawks current roster and a roster that I would like to see (or something close to it) to start the 2012/2013 season. Let me know what you think! Current Roster Sharp/Toews/Stalberg Shaw/Kane/Hossa Bickell/Bolland/Frolik Mayers/Kruger/Carcillo/Hayes/Bollig Keith/Seabrook Leddy/Oduya Montador/Hjalmarsson Olsen Crawford/Emery TK0N’s fantasy squad...

NHL Free Agency: Shane Doan In Chicago?

After the NHLPA closed their meetings in Chicago on Wednesday, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews joked with the media that he “lobbied” for could-be-former Coyotes captain Shane Doan to sign with the Hawks when he becomes an unrestricted free agent on … Continue reading →

Rick Nash and the Penguins?

Oh god. From Elliotte Friedman: Have always believed Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson's best opportunity to deal Rick Nash will be after Parise's decision. Think some other teams hoped their first-round picks would really appeal to Columbus, but that wasn't the case. My guess is that Nash and Bobby Ryan, if Anaheim wants to do it, get dealt after Parise signs...

Please Stop Recruiting Rick Nash Mr. Friedman

In his latest 30 Thoughts blog post, Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman has devoted a plethora of digital ink towards items that should pique the interest of Senators fans. But, rather than just copying-and-pasting some of the information related to impending UFA Justin Schultz and free agency, I'll encourage you to go to his blog and check it out yourself. Here are...

Let the Insanity Begin!

You guys really didn't think I'd miss out on July 1st now did you?Looks like first big free agency shoe will drop today as Bob McKenzie at TSN reported this last night...Free agent defenceman Justin Schultz will decide tomorrow where he's signing.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 30, 2012 ESPN Insider notes that Schultz apparently wants to play north of the border...

John Jaeckel: What 'Minor Tweaks' Could Mean

Follow me @jaeckel As I said on the inaugural "HawksBuzz With JJ" Show on Sunday, with each tick of the clock leading up to July 1, it becomes a little less likely the Hawks will move Niklas Hjalmarsson and open the cap space to make a bigger splash in free agency. Most of the emails and PMs and comments on the message board are pretty negative—most fans don...

John Jaeckel: Hot Rumors For A Hot Friday

Follow me @jaeckel Rumors that leaked yesterday of the Hawks having interest in the Kings' Jonathan Bernier may have some legs. Because reports from the opposite coast have the Devils inquiring with the Hawks on a fairly significant offer for none other than . . . Corey Crawford. More on this as I have it. On the Niklas Hjalmarsson front, today could be the critical...
