Alex Regula – Nicolas Beaudin – Riley Stillman
This is pretty much the same as everyone on the last page. There are only six roster spots and someone has to go from this team. Chicago is not going to be able to have all of these guys in the NHL next season.
So if there are going to be any trades I guess it would be after training camp. The team is going to have to wait and see who is taking a step forward this offseason and who didn’t develop to the point of remaining in the NHL.
If one of these guys is better than the rest then they will stay in the NHL and the others will go down to the AHL or be traded away to start fresh somewhere else.
Unless one of these guys comes back next season and all of a sudden is great with rebounds and tracking the puck I am okay trading any of them. The Blackhawks are still looking for a starting goalie, which is why I mentioned a couple of goalies the team should trade for this off-season.
"Three goalies the Chicago Blackhawks could sign this summer"
Lankinen is probably the number one guy going into the new year, but it is not that big of a lead. So if any team is looking for a backup and wants to trade for any of these three guys I think that could work depending on the return.
