Blackhawks trade rumors 2015: Patrick Sharp's top suitors reportedly include Penguins, Stars, Panthers

Three teams have reportedly emerged in the chase to land Sharp. The Pittsburgh Penguins, Dallas Stars and Florida Panthers lead the list of suitors to acquire Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp, reports Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune.

Patrick Sharp Trade Rumors: Potential Red Wings Fit at Unreasonable Price

The Chicago Blackhawks face big cap trouble coming into their Cup defense. With restricted free agent Brandon Saad left to be signed to a multi-million dollar deal, the Hawks currently have about $7M in cap space against a $71M cap. Once Saad is signed, Chicago will have a mere five forwards and three defenseman spots left to fill will that sub-$7M space left. To help fix this, Chicago has made it known that right-shooting sniper Patrick Sharp will be available for trade this offseason. Sharp does have a limited no-trade clause, which involves the player having to present a list of 10...
