Official Blackhawks Trade Proposal/Trade Rumour Thread

If you've got a proposal that seems legitimate, or you've heard something through the hockey grapevine, or you've anything related to trading, post it here. My idea is to keep everything in one thread and to have a more friendly atmosphere than the Spartan-Athenian war that is the Trade Rumors and Free Agent Talk section.

I still think the Hawks should go after a potential 1B goaltender.
Though Bishop is no Rinne, he would be an upgrade to Emery and I think we could get him from Ottawa for a 2nd and mid to lower tier prospect.
Bernier interests me as well but not so easy to deal within our own conference.

I'd prefer to keep this trash on the trade boards, or as I like to call it, the bowels of HF. If there's a legitimate rumor brewing with a source that's not JJ, that's a different story.

I still don't understand why people are so concerned with upgrading the back up goaltender. Come playoff time the back up will never see the ice. So why would the Hawks (a playoff team) use assets to acquire a player who won't play during the most important games of the year? I would much rather they hang on to the 2nd (which they don't even have this year), trade for some depth at center for the 3rd or 4th lines, or (if they do make a move for a goalie) go after someone who is at least better than Crawford.

Going after Bishop just seems like a waste of resources to me.

getting a competent backup will push Crawford. If the backup is better, he will play in the POs.


Players I want Bowman to add
Marcel Goc
Jacob Josefsson
Tyler Bozak
Ryan OReilly

ROR would be perfect for us. Think it may end up with a Subban - ROR trade


Bruce Garrioch, ok it's Garrioch, reports that the Avs quitely shop ROR. Asking for a young forward + 2nd.
I'd give them that and next year make room for his higher Cap Hit.

Toews, Bolland, ROR & Krüger at Center. That would be good enough in my books

ROR is reportedly asking for 5 mil per year. That is quite a lot of money for a 3C and the Hawks only have a little 10 mil in cap space next year (assuming Olesz is a buyout and Monty on IR) to fill 7 spots. Spending 5 mil on ROR (while also signing Kruger and Leddy to extensions) means the Hawks would have to dump quite a bit of salary to fill out the team. Also the only young forward the Hawks have that might interest the Avs (for ROR atleast) is probably Saad.

I don't think our goalie problem is going to be solved until the off season. Teams will be asking too much for their goalies this year (before the TD) and will have no problem holding onto them for insurance if they aren't offered enough.

I say wait till the off season to find our 1B goalie, since the asking price will be lower, and there will be more to choose from at that time.

While I would love to bring in RoR I just can't see how we could afford it, especially with all of the signings that have to happen this summer.

ROR won't happen. Bozak or maybe Eller could happen.

I would not mind if Leafs falter and make Bozak available

Would be good 3rd line C pickup

The dream third line center is Nielsen. I have been the biggest advocate to get him Chicago for a couple years now. They love him out there and was recently signed, but if we pony up, I wonder how hard it would be to say no.

I would love Nielsen on the Hawks. I think isles fans wouldn't mind parting with him either. They have some young guys coming up that would fill his role.

And if Crawford gets injured? What then? Hawks have been rolling the dice with their goaltending situation for too long.

I think a Nabokov/Nielsen deal makes sense.

Doubt it could happen but Bozak and Stalberg had pretty good chemistry as rookies in TO.

I don't think guys like ROR are the guys to look at. People like Goc and Nielsen create depth. You also need a goaltender. Offensive firepower isn't the route to go.

I'd imagine Stalberg would be a major piece to any trade the Hawks do. He's going to ask for, and get, a decent raise with his new contract. We cant add more salary in a deal. Salary needs to either remain where it is now or be lessened.

Frans has a $2.75 mil cap hit for the next 4 seasons (including this one). That should be about what Stalberg asks for to be honest.

So your reasoning is that the Hawks should use valuable resources to acquire a back up because of the (rather remote) possibility that Crawford gets seriously injured and misses time.

I would fully support upgrading to someone better than Crawford, but trading for a back up just seems wasteful.

Stalberg + Pirri/Olsen for Nielsen. Value seems fair but know the Islanders really like Nielsen.

I'd do Pirri and a 1st since he's locked up to a reasonabe deal.

Islander fans are penciling college prospects, ahlers who've never played 1 nhl game and junior players onto the NYI roster, in place young nhlers.

I'm going to guess that Snow is more realistic, not interested in trading contributing nhlers because some 19 yr old is tearing it up in juniors

Nielsen sign a cheap 4 yr extension.

Stalberg's an impending ufa. Isles have a glut of kids.

Isles aren't trading Nielsen imo for a short term move or to add depth.

Your team is bad. When your team is in need of improvement and is not near making the playoffs, a change is in order. You can trade him and hope the high pick and the couple prospects you get wind up total being a better package than what Nielsen contributed to your team.

I'm not a Stalberg-for-Nielsen guy. However, how is getting prospects in return bad? Who cares if the Isles' offensive and defensive productivity take a step back. It's not like they are or will be in the playoff hunt. They should utilize him as a piece to get three potentially solid ones in return.
