While it’s never fun being the fan of a team that has to sell at the trade deadline, let’s take a look at who the Chicago Blackhawks could potentially trade if they can’t turn their season around.

As we enter January and a new calendar year, the Chicago Blackhawks find themselves in a tough spot in the standings. On one hand, the team is four points out of a playoff spot and has three games in hand on the team currently sitting in that spot, the Anaheim Ducks.

On the other hand, the team is potentially one loss away from having the fourth-worst record in the West and needing to jump four teams to make it to the playoffs.

While we have talked extensively on Blackhawk Up about what the team needs to do to right the ship and find some wins, it might not be a bad idea to consider what the ‘Hawks might have to do if things don’t go well during a tough January schedule.

While many fans may be looking at what pieces the ‘Hawks could possibly add at the trade deadline to help get the team in the playoffs, it is worth looking at the opposite end of the spectrum. Which players could potentially be traded away at the trade deadline if the Blackhawks can’t salvage this season?
