What's your deal with Chicago?
I think we'll see some RFA movement and probably Harding...that will be about it. Issue is, we have so much tied up into Backstrom now that it does hurt our chances at signing a high profile FA anyways. Bouchard needs to be off the books again. Sykora didn't work out so hopefully we stay away from the over the hill guys.

The deal would never work in hindsight but they thought it was pretty fair and balanced. Helps them out mucho beuno and gets them under the cap a lot quicker. It does mean we take on a high ass contract though....


Chicago:
Harding
Burns
Nolan
Brodziak
2010 Washington's 2nd rounder

Minnesota:
Sharp
Versteeg
Campbell

Fills the holes, and we get an overpaid dman who probably needs a fresh start out of Chicago and gives us two solid options on the PP working the point (Zidlicky and himself)

Versteeg-Koivu-Brunette
Latendresse-Sharp-Havlat
Clutterbuck-Bouchard (if he comes back)-Kobasew
Earl-Ebbett-Mittens

Zanon-Zidlicky
Barker-Campbell
Hnidy-Schultz

Backstrom
Anton Khudobin
