Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks didn’t make a deal if you throw out a Spencer Abbott Rockford Ice Hogs trade on the NHL Trade Deadline Day, and I’m alright with that! 

The Chicago Blackhawks made a couple of minor moves in the week leading up to the NHL Trade deadline, and you can, maybe can call the Johnny Oduya deal a major move for the Blackhawks this year.

The best part of all of the deals is that the Hawks didn’t give up any prospects or youth this year or a top draft pick.  The biggest prospect that I’m sure all Chicago Blackhawks fans are glad that the Hawks didn’t give up in a trade was Alex DeBrincat.

You have to think that Stan Bowman would have given up DeBrincat for Matt Duchene if he could have made it work with the salary cap, but maybe just maybe the hawks being up against the cap will help them long term. Maybe the Hawks will have DeBrincat for years to come solely because the Hawks couldn’t afford to take in one more star to the roster.

The other thing the Hawks didn’t do was trade away a Ryan Hartman or Vinnie Hinostroza who seem to be really maturing into some real nice talent.

Stan Bowman not making a move yesterday probably was his best move long term and most likely short term in my mind!
