The most obvious are the “Stars” of the team. In the ‘Hawks’ case, they are playmakers and goal scorers.

Patrick Kane: Kane is one of the most dynamic players in the NHL. There are a ton of teams that would love to have him on their roster. The only hesitation would be his contract. Per Cap Friendly , Kane is due to count $10.5M against the cap for each of the next two seasons. But for a player of his caliber, it would likely be worth it.

Alex DeBrincat: His emergence as a 2 way stud this season cemented his status as a rising star in the NHL. He could be a solid foundational piece for a young team, or a great plug-in to a veteran team needing some scoring punch. And at a “bargain” $6.4M (per Cap Friendly) cap hit for the next 2 seasons, teams would be very interested in adding a player like this.

Dominik Kubalik: He has proven himself to be a reliable scorer, but is far better with effective linemates who can feed him the puck in good shooting lanes. Goal scorers are a hot commodity in this league, and at $3.7M (per Cap Friendly) for next season, he is a bargain if he can deliver another 25-30 goal season.
