Now we're suggesting that Chicago will trade their better goalie, in order to free up cap space in order to acquire an expensive aging scoring-line center? And people think they will be interested in trading a young defender who has helped bring stability to the blueline in order to get that un-needed offensive upgrade?
Seems like wishful thinking and one-way interest.
Both teams are playing pretty well. I think if one teams starts to hit the skids in a big way or there is a rash of serious injuries you might see a move in order to shake things up.
Until then I think the trading deadline is really the more likely time to see movement. Thats when the non-playoffs teams are established and the contenders look to solidify their playoff run.
But then again if Nylander continues to look disinterested m receives minimal minutes, terrible linemates and continues to receive healthy scratches maybe he gets the boot.
