Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Trade Talk

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! If there’s one thing Chicago Blackhawks fans have all done since they were able to hoist the Stanley Cup in June is talk trade.

Yesterday we looked at Kris Versteeg being traded to the Montreal Canadiens, and one thing we learned as we look forward to the Patrick Sharp trade that Stan Bowman always seems to steer away from the obvious choice. The Dallas Stars weren’t really on many peoples radar but at the end of the day that’s were the Chicago Blackhawks fan favorite ended up.

So now we look towards either a Kris Versteeg or a Bryan Bickell trade to help clear enough space for the Chicago Blackhawks to get cap compliant by the deadline.  So where does Stan go? That is the real question and one we seemed to be stuck waiting for all summer long.  Here are some morning links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
