As deadline nears, Blackhawks have holes to fill, questions to answer

A little less than three weeks ago, Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said it was difficult to get a feel for who might be available at the Feb. 29 trade deadline because of how many teams were on the playoff bubble.

“The biggest thing is, you’re not quite sure what’s available around the league,” Bowman said. “At this point, there’s a lot of clustering in the standings. And in order for trades to happen you have to have teams that are willing to look toward next year.”

Will the Hawks target Versteeg?

As for staying alive in the playoffs, I still think they need a little more depth at forward. If they can somehow land a top-six forward, preferably a left wing (I might be alone on this, but I think Kris Versteeg is a really intriguing option who can fit right in), that would allow Andrew Shaw to move back to his more traditional role on the third or fourth line.

Bryan Bickell’s agent: ‘Hopefully, we can work out a trade’

Bickell’s wish was ruined by the Blackhawks and the rest of the league on Sunday. No team claimed Bickell off waivers prior to the Sunday morning deadline, and he was later reassigned to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL for the second time this season.

Brian Campbell’s future could hinge on how Florida Panthers finish this season

Even though it has been over five years since Brian Campbell joined the Panthers, he never really left Chicago.

Now in the final year of the eight-year, $57 million contract Campbell originally signed with the Blackhawks, some wonder if he’ll eventually return to play in Chicago — perhaps as early as next season.
