I've been really impressed by what Redmond has done so far this year, but there's no way Chicago gives up Hjalmarsson that easily. There'd be a dozen other teams willing to give up more I'd think. Besides which, Redmond's value is tracking up and is considered a future piece for the team (likely #4 D) - Hainsey should be the trade target.

I agree with the earlier posters that Antro could be a huge pickup for a contender at the deadline. He's streaky offensively and he's the butt of jokes for his foot speed, but he's still solid defensively and he's smart/strong with/on the puck during the cycle game. He'd be an upgrade for a lot of teams at 3rd-line center or a huge upgrade on the 4th line. Hawks fans shouldn't have to be reminded of the benefits to depth at forward during the playoffs.
