Patrick Sharp and the Blackhawks are done with the rumors, so we should be, too

The Blackhawks have made it clear the rumors are bunk, so let's stop wasting time talking about them. Patrick Sharp and the Chicago Blackhawks are sick of the rumors, and everyone else involved with the team should be, too. After the winger's strong statement Sunday denying the false claims that have surrounded him and the team, it's become clear that what occurred casually in the media over the past year was irresponsible and inappropriate. "It’s laughable but when it affects your family, when you have two little girls at home and your parents are calling you, it takes a toll," Sharp...

Sounds like Patrick Sharp will remain in Chicago for at least the remainder of the season. Contrary to rumors going around over the weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks have "no intention" of trading forward Patrick Sharp.

Blackhawks trade rumors 2015: Joel Ward also part of talks between Chicago, Washington, per report

Patrick Sharp reportedly wasn't the only name brought up in trade talks between the Blackhawks and Capitals. The Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals may be discussing more than just Patrick Sharp. The Blackhawks have asked the Capitals about veteran forward Joel Ward, according to Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago. It's not clear whether the talks on Ward were part of the same discussion involving Sharp or part of a separate deal, but that could make some sense from a financial perspective. Sharp's large $5.9 million cap hit would be impossible for Washington to swallow without shipping...

Blackhawks trade rumors 2015: Chicago, Washington talking Patrick Sharp?

Not long after the Timonen deal, we get wind that GM Stan Bowman could be up to something even bigger. If you wanted GM Stan Bowman to be aggressive, it certainly sounds like he's following through. The Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals "have had dialogue" on a trade revolving around forward Patrick Sharp, according to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune. It's unclear how far talks have progressed or what kind of return might be sent to Chicago, but this is as strong an indication as we've seen regarding a possible Sharp trade. It's been speculated on in the past given the team's...

Game 59 Recap: Avalanche Power Play Overpowers Blackhawks

Tyson Barrie's big night leads the Avalanche over the Blackhawks. First Period: As usual when these teams meet, the Blackhawks came out flying in this game and pushed the pace hard in the Avs' zone.  Varlamov staved off a few good shots early, but the Avs couldn't find any offensive pushback.  4 minutes into the game had a near disaster when Nick Holden made a terrible pinch to send Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane on a 2-0 breakaway.  Jarome Iginla chased down the pair and slowed up the cross-ice pass, but the break seemed to set the Hawks on fire.  For the next 4 minutes Chicago...

Blackhawks trade rumors 2015: Quiet deadline expected despite whispers about salary cap

The Blackhawks' salary cap situation keeps coming up, even though the team doesn't need to deal with it until the offseason. We all know the Chicago Blackhawks are going to have to deal with their salary cap situation before next season, but the idea of the team dealing a major player now won't go away. It came up again Wednesday in a report from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, who said it's been part of "gossip shared among scouts and team executives around the league." Patrick Sharp and Bryan Bickell are two names that have been "thrown around in" the context of trades, per LeBrun, although he...
