unfinished business heading into training camp, much like they did a year ago, when they traded defenseman Nick Leddy to the New York Islanders to get under the cap. This year, the cost might be veteran forwards Bryan Bickell or Kris Versteeg, or it could be somebody who's not thought to be on the trade block.
Will the top four defensemen be as effective with Trevor Daley replacing Johnny Oduya...

last season, which carry over to this season's cap charges, amount to about $750,000. That makes the squeeze even tighter and the possibility of additional trades more likely.
Forwards Bryan Bickell and Kris Versteeg are thought to be on the block. Bickell has two years left on a contract with a cap charge of $4 million; Versteeg has a $2.2 million charge on a contract that runs one more season...

The Blackhawks are hoping Dano can close the gap quickly to help offset the loss of Saad, not to mention the departure of veteran left wing Patrick Sharp, who was traded Friday to the Dallas Stars. Veteran forwards Bryan Bickell and Kris Versteeg might also be on the trading block, so there likely will be some key roles up for grabs at training camp.

Vermette (Arizona Coyotes) in free agency. Defenseman Michal Rozsival and Johnny Oduya are unrestricted free agents.
Forward Bryan Bickell (a salary-cap charge of $4 million for each of the next two seasons) also is a trade candidate, but perhaps less so now that Sharp is gone. Chicago is in talks with restricted free agent forward Marcus Krueger, and defenseman Brent Seabrook can become a free agent...

Figueroa, 33, has been tattooing for nine years and has been drawing hockey art for two years. He's drawn many players, including almost the entire Blackhawks team, and has gotten the artwork signed.
"After awhile, the players started to recognize my artwork," he said. "[I've met] Andrew Shaw, Bryan Bickell, Bobby Hull, Jeremy Roenick, Tony Esposito, Antti Raanta, Patrick Kane...

for about $69.9 million. Teams are allowed to exceed the $71.4 million salary-cap ceiling by up to 10 percent in the offseason but must be compliant by the first game of the regular season.
That means the Blackhawks do have some flexibility in free agency. Bowman also might trade higher-priced forwards Patrick Sharp, Bryan Bickell or Kris Versteeg, or keep somebody originally ticketed for a cap...

this scenario twice before and still won championships. Under his retooling efforts, the Blackhawks have won the Cup three times in six seasons, and he's not about to change.
Just as he does every year at this point, Bowman is looking to acquire picks in the draft. His most likely trade chips are forwards Patrick Sharp and Bryan Bickell, each of whom has been on all three of the Blackhawks' Cup-winning teams...

Les Hawks veulent offrir un nouveau contrat à Brandon Saad, et ils ont une marge de manoeuvre limitée.
Mercredi, les gouverneurs vont tenter de ratifier de nouvelles règles comme du jeu à trois contre trois en prolongation...
