You guys also need a top defensive d-man, which Gorges is. How is there no value there? Say not enough, maybe, but none at all? That is a bit ignorant, no?
Didn't meant to offend--I'll tweak my post.

First, I'm not a Blackhawks fan. Perhaps they will feel differently about the proposal.

Second, value is determined by the assets in the deal. Plekanec could, indeed, be an ideal 2C for Chicago, allowing them to shift Kane / Sharp to their preferred positions. But there is no (good) value to the Blackhawks in swapping Kane for a package around Plekanec and Gorges.

As you point out, there might be a match to make between the two teams around Plekanec, but I don't think you can do it around Kane (and Gorges).
