Which players could be bought out or traded this offseason on the Chicago Blackhawks?
Regardless of what happens in their upcoming playoff matchup with the Edmonton Oilers, the Chicago Blackhawks could see somewhat of a roster turnover this offseason. There’s already a good chance that Corey Crawford won’t be back next year, given his contract status and what he’d likely cost to retain. Plus, the Blackhawks need to see what they have in Collin Delia as well as Malcolm Subban.
The central core will remain intact outside of a potential Brent Seabrook buyout, but that would mean they value the other options on the roster more than an underwhelming veteran presence. In terms of cap space, the Blackhawks have approximately $17M available, second-most in the league, according to Spotrac.
