Brent Seabrook Being Shopped

According to ESPN Insider Rumor Central and Victoria Matiash the Blackhawks are secretly shopping D-man Brent Seabrook. He may very well be traded before the Feb 28 deadline adds Matiash. He is not being shopped to just get rid of him because of the great chemistry with Duncan Keith, and he is a huge part of the future, but he is being shopped.

I speculate that Seabrook is being shopped for a bigger deal to bring another good addition to this team, maybe Alex Semin, Thomas Vokun, Brad Richards, Thomas Kaberle, and others possibly being Shopped this year

This is the second time I have heard this, I am starting to believe there is something to it. Kind of suprised Hawks are secretly shopping him, must be something going on behind the scenes for them to move Seabrook. Many other players they could move instead of a stud defenseman. Seabrook should fetch premier return as he is a top pairing defenseman and still relatively young. Just puzzled why the Hawks are doing this as very seldom defensemen of this caliber are "shopped".

Seabrook would be the perfect addition for the Avs. Our defense is one of the worst in the league.

With espn insider you got to remember that they use as sources sites/people/sources that don't make the grade here--a few times they have used this board as a source

Guys like Seabrook are shopped all the time. You only think this because he was on the Olympic team, but he was chosen only because he has great chemistry with Keith. By no means is he the 7th best defenseman from Canada.

With their cap issues and Seabrook being an RFA at the end of the season I'm not surprised at all, especially considering the young, cheap talent that the Hawks could get in return for him.

Seabrook would be number 1 on the Canucks,

You should know his play is a physical positional brand that is hard to find, Edler would be the closet thingr

To say Seabrook is only a by product Keith really shows your lack of hockey knowledge,

yeah, hockeywise insider has pretty low standards for sources.

Also, why would they be shopping seabrook to bring in a rental? Doesnt make sense to me.

This is what makes me think the Avs are in on it (if true). The Avs have tons of young and cheap players and need defense. The Hawks have some good defense and need some young depth.

Penner makes too much, and I don't think Foster would do it.

I'm assuming that moving Seabrook would mean getting as much talent with as little cap hit as possible.

Try young guys on ELC's, prospects + several picks.

Well "if" there's any truth to the rumor maybe they tried working out a deal already and realize it's going to be too expensive to resign him? He's going to want a 1.5-2.0 million raise and it's hard to say whether Bowman wants that much tied up in defense. Also Sharp's contract is coming up next year. Maybe they are going to go that route. Also it could be complete ******** and he's not even being shopped at all.

In my opinion, Seabrook has been over rated . He was a fantastic prospect but then Duncan Keith just took over. I think Seabrook hit a wall .

Hawks got so many high priced D right now they might have to ship him out .
