Chicago Blackhawks have the 3rd worst record in the Western Conference, and most likely will miss the playoffs again, so it would make sense for them to trade away the veteran players at the trade deadline. This is what the Chicago Blackhawks should do at the trade deadline.
Chicago Blackhawks make a three-team trade with the Edmonton Oilers and Arizona Coyotes
Chicago Blackhawks get Mikko Koskinen, Alex Galchenyuk, Ryan Dzingel, 2nd round pick '23 (from EDM).
Edmonton Oilers get Marc Andre Fleury, 7th round pick '23 (from ARI).
Arizona Coyotes get Brett Connolly, Kyle Turris, Devin Shore, 4th round pick '23 (from EDM).
This trade helps out all teams involved; the Oilers get Marc-Andre Fleury, he gives them a veteran goalie they have been desperately looking for. In order for the trade to work out, the Oilers and Blackhawks need to move salaries, so Brett Connly, Kyle Turris, and Devin Shore are moved to the Coyotes along with a 4th round pick from Edmonton. Chicago get Mikko Koskinen to tandem with Kevin Lankinen, Alex Galchenyuk, and Ryan Dzingel from Arizona, as well as a 2nd round pick from Edmonton.
Chicago Blackhawks trade Dylan Strome, Dominik Kubalik to the Anaheim Ducks for Isac Lundestrom, Jacob Larsson, 2022 2nd round pick, 2023 2nd round pick.
The Blackhawks trade away Dylan Strome and Dominik Kubalik to the Ducks for Isac Lundestrom, Jacob Larsson, and two second-round picks.
Calvin DeHaan is traded to the New York Islanders for Kieffer Bellows, 2022 2nd round pick.
Calvin DeHaan is having a solid year for Chicago, so it would be smart for them to move him for something since he is a UFA at the end of the season.
Ryan Carpenter, Erik Gustafsson are traded to the Minnesota Wild for 2022 6th round pick, 2023 7th round pick.
The Blackhawks trade Ryan Carpenter and Erik Gustafsson to the Minnesota Wild for two draft picks.
2022 2nd round pick (from NYI)
2022 2nd round pick (from ANA)
2022 6th round pick (from MIN)
2023 2nd round pick (from EDM)
2023 2nd round pick (from ANA)
2023 7th round pick (from MIN)
Players traded away:
Marc Andre Fleury
Lineup After Trade Deadline
