Would the Chicago Blackhawks consider buying out Brent Seabrook’s contract in the offseason?
After the Chicago Blackhawks won their third cup in six years, the front office gave defenseman Brent Seabrook an eight-year, $55M contract, one that would guarantee he would be with the team for life. However, with four years remaining on his contract and three consecutive sub-par seasons, you have to wonder how much longer he’ll stay with the team.
Seabrook was instrumental in helping the Hawks win all three of their Stanely Cups, including a dramatic Game 7 overtime winner against Detroit during the 2013 run. But his last true productive year was the 2015-2016 season when he tallied 49 points, including 14 goals and 35 assists, and had a plus-minus +6 rating.
