Hard to say though, but it would be a treat to get him in a CH sweater
The only core guys they have to re-sign are Leddy and Bickell, Stalberg isn't even dressed most of the games recently. He Rozival and Handzus they can replace with their young players(Morin Hayes Glendenning Olsen Pirri).

They'll end up buying out Olesz and probably Montador, giving them about 7 mil in cap space for Leddy, Bickell and Kruger. At 3.5 for Bickell, about 1.5-1.75 for Leddy and 1 mil for Kruger they are fine.

Edit:Forgot a back up goalie. Bickell getting 3.5-3.75 mil cap hit would definitely force Chicago to make another move, but if they really like what he brings,I could see Frolik being moved for more cap space.
