3. We are talking about Duncan Keith here.

Duncan Keith is a hall of fame player. He is going to have his number retired in Chicago one day, and similar to Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Corey Crawford, I thought Keith would play his entire career in a Blackhawks uniform.

Keith is not just a good player, he has the potential to lead the team in a lot of different categories when all is said and done. He is the heart and soul of this team as his worth ethic and skill have never wavered over the last ten-plus years.

Now the same reason I am saying not to trade Keith here goes the flip way too. Duncan Keith decides his own fate. If he really wants to be traded then that is going to happen. If he is looking to push for the Stanley Cup one more time in his career after watching the Lightning win so many games easily this postseason then I understand the move.

I guess now all we can do is sit and wait. Wait to see if Duncan Keith really does get traded, and if he does which team is taking him, oh and if he is getting traded what is the team getting in return? So many questions to consider in the next few days.
