Would Chicago accept the NY Islanders 2nd rd 2012 (33rd or 34th overall) + a prospect for Niklas Hjalmarsson.
considering how he played this year im certain they would, though I dont understand your interest. Chicago surely regrets matching that offersheet since his play has slipped markedly from what it was 2 seasons ago, a borderline 1st and a prospect is a hefty price to pay for someone like Hjalmarsson.
Some blackhawk fans would dearly love to be rid of his salary, he's not a strict cap dump mind you but he's definitely over compensated for how he plays, Id say a 3rd is fair for taking his contract and youd have to play him with Streit since he is horrid with the puck, We would love seeing him with the puck against us Tyutin and Wiz gave him fits
it was funny, he was almost a guaranteed turnover machine
