Chicago sends Saad to Columbus in 7-player deal

Saad, 22, set career highs with 23 goals and 29 assists in 82 games this past season. The rugged winger then helped the Blackhawks to their third Stanley Cup title in six seasons. Saad was eligible for restricted free agency, and Chicago is trying to manage its salary cap with twin extensions for captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane kicking in for next season. The Blackhawks also sent forward Alex Broadhurst and defenseman Michael Paliotta to the Blue Jackets for forwards Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano, Jeremy Morin and Corey Tropp and a fourth-round selection in the 2016 draft. Carolina...

Blackhawks trade Brandon Saad to Blue Jackets, per reports

Saad's time in Chicago is over. The Chicago Blackhawks have traded restricted free agent Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a package centered around Artem Anisimov and Marko Dano, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. The trade ends Saad's tenure with the Hawks a day before he would've been free to accept offer sheets from other teams. Saad, 22, has been a rising star in Chicago over the past few seasons, leading to the difficult situation this summer with his restricted free agency. The Blackhawks are in a cap crunch with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews receiving big...

2015 NHL Awards Open Thread: Come For The Awards, Stay For The Retta

Chat up your predictions and laugh at people telling bad jokes right here. Tonight is the first of two Blues-free zones for the week, the second of which is obviously Friday night's televised coverage of round one of the NHL Draft. Both come replete with reminders of the Blackhawks winning the Cup, but only one will give you a chance to laugh at the awkwardness of Jonathan Toews on camera. Despite the fact that no Blues are up for anything tonight, and that several of the awards are shoe-ins (is anyone but Bob Hartley going to win the Jack Adams?), the Awards are usually a good time. You...

Five reasons why the Blackhawks' summer overhaul is being totally overblown

Did you hear about how Chicago's roster will be decimated this offseason? That's a bit of an exaggeration. The Chicago Blackhawks will look different next season. That is undeniable as the team enters an offseason full of big questions and salary cap constraints, largely produced by the massive raises coming to franchise cornerstones Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. Both players have matching $10.5 million cap hits going forward, the highest in the NHL. Change is inevitable when you're restructuring finances to such a large degree, and already we're seeing the rumors that key contributors...

Blackhawks trade rumors: Patrick Sharp trade 'expected' next week, per report

The first casualty in the salary cap purge unsurprisingly looks to be the highly paid forward. A trade involving Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp is "expected" in the next week, according to Brian Hedger of NHL.com. The news comes just a day after the team celebrated its third Stanley Cup in six years with a massive parade and rally in downtown Chicago. Sharp, 33, has long been considered a trade target given his large $5.9 million salary cap hit and the Blackhawks' other financial commitments. With Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane set to receive massive raises from their new...

'Hawks winning the cup should give Avs hope

Colorado's success against Chicago in 2014-15 should give them reason to look forward to next year. The names of Chicago Blackhawks skaters have now been scrawled upon the surface of the Stanley Cup three times in the past six seasons. In an era of hockey regulated by a salary cap, this is a dynasty by any definition. Not only is it a testament to great young players like Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, and the masterful coaching presence in Joel Quenneville, but an aggressive and diligent front office that has managed to keep numerous expensive players on the same team for the better part...

Handshakes for Hawks

I do not wish the Hawks luck. It was the best of times, it was the suckiest bunch of sucking time. Playing deeper into the postseason is certainly a small success. Being arguably the better, deeper team and failing to get out of the conference final against basically four guys, a defenseman, and a smart coach is really crummy. Jonathan Toews is really good at hockey, and I hate him. When he's not playing against the Ducks, I like and appreciate his skill quite a bit. He can be used in any situation, defensively or offensively, and tends to come out the better player. By the end of the...
