Now we can discuss the actual thing Roenick was talking about.
Something that could at least theoretically happen.
Actually, Roenick wasn't specifically talking about any team. His point was the the Blackhawks need help between the pipes, and in order to get something big they have to give up something big. Roenick said as much as he loved Kane, the Hawks could survive without his offense if a star tender could be acquired.

With all that said, Andy Strickland wrote that the Hawks brass have spoken internally about the possibility of dealing Kane for a tender. There are few tenders out there who could be traded for Kane. So naturally, the top players at that position are going to be discussed: Tim Thomas, Ryan Miller, et al. People here know that Thomas has a NMC. That fact doesn't preclude a discussion. Does it make sense? No, but it doesn't mean it can't be discussed. Miller makes far more sense. He also has a NMC, btw; however, Strickland says he would waive it to go to the Hawks. The reasons are obvious. Now, the cabbies in Buffalo might not approve of a deal that would bring Kane home, but that's not their call.
