Duncan Keith

Duncan Keith is 37 years old, and he is not getting any younger. If he wants to win another Stanley Cup before calling it a career it is within his right to ask for a trade to a contender. However, Keith has been leading this team since like 2008 so there is no reason to think he is going to abandon the ship anytime soon.

Calvin de Haan

de Haan had some injury problems and was not that great when he was in the game. If the team wants to move on from him to open up a roster spot and clear some cap space they might be able to get a decent return on a defenseman that can play in any team’s top four.

Connor Murphy

Murphy was the most talked-about defenseman this past season. He was inconsistent in the sense that one day we were talking about a bad play he made only to turn around and see him put on a great performance the next game.

Murphy is a leader on this blue line and would be a great number two or number three guy on a good blue line. Chicago would be able to get a pretty solid return for the defenseman.
