September 11th, 2015: Joakim Nordstrom, center, and Kris Versteeg, left wing, and a 2017 third-round pick for Dennis Robertson, Jake Massie and a 2017 fifth-round pick.

Initial Reaction: This was a straight salary dump by the Blackhawks. They needed to get under the salary cap so they could re-sign Marcus Kruger.

Current Assessment: Although the Blackhawks might miss Versteeg’s secondary scoring and Nordstrom’s defensive game, they needed to re-sign Kruger.

Grade: B
