The Chicago Blackhawks took advantage of the Edmonton Oilers’ desperate need for defensemen to make their second trade of the season.

Less than a month ago, reports from around the league indicated the Chicago Blackhawks were actively shopping defensemen Jan Rutta and Brandon Manning. A couple of weeks ago, the ‘Hawks placed Rutta on waivers and assigned him to Rockford.

Yesterday, Stan Bowman dealt Manning and defensive prospect Robin Norell to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for forward Drake Caggiula and defenseman Jason Garrison.

After making a bunch of moves this summer, all seemingly bad, Bowman has redeemed himself a bit between this trade and the Strome/Perlini deal. He recognized some of the issues the team needed to address and made changes, all for the better so far.

While we may know most of what the Blackhawks are giving up when it comes to Manning, we don’t know much about the other parts of the trade.

Let’s analyze all the parts included in this deal.
