Blackhawks assistant GM Kevin Cheveldayoff was in attendance at the Leafs/Capitals game Saturday amidst rumours swirling that a trade is being discussed.
Here's where I got the story.
The players the Hawks are rumoured to be shopping are: Sopel, Sharp, Versteeg and Barker as they all have salaries ranging from $2.5m to $4m, and the Hawks need to clear space to sign their young guns.
HNIC said it was Sopel the Leafs are interested in. That makes very little sense, unless it's part of a larger package. Story says the Leafs will take on the salary but are wanting draft picks included.
We'll see how this shakes out.
