Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Initial Patrick Sharp Talks Begin

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s day two of the Patrick Sharp trade tracker, and now word is leaking out that the trade talks are in the initial stages.  There is allegedly 8 teams that have expressed interest so now it’s up to Stan Bowman to make the deal that is most advantageous for the Chicago Blackhawks team now and in the future.

So the question as it has been since the Chicago Blackhawks skated off the United Center ice with the Stanley Cup a little over a week ago isn’t if but when Patrick Sharp will be on another team for the first time since arrived over a decade ago for the 2005-2006 season. It’s hard believe that one of the players that was there for the worst of times and for all three of the best of times will soon be gone from the Chicago Blackhawks.

Time marches on and we can only thank the salary cap for breaking up the Chicago Blackhawks for the third time, yet Stan Bowman has kept the core in tact! Here are some morning links to help keep your Tuesday morning in tact today.
