This is what to expect from the Blackhawks in free agencyVincent Pariseon July 13, 2022 at 12:00 pm

The free agency period opens up for the Chicago Blackhawks and the rest of the National Hockey League at 11 AM central. It is going to be a wild time as things have already started to heat up across the league.

There have been some big trades and some big names have already declared that they are staying with their current teams. Now, there is a chance that we see more big trades and huge free agency signings as early as that 11 AM time on Wednesday.

What should fans of the Chicago Blackhawks expect? Well, the answer is absolutely nothing. This team is rebuilding and should be adding no bad contracts to their team. They just let a bunch of players go in the name of a rebuild and this isn’t a time where they will be on a spending spree.

Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane could each be traded at any time now which is the most exciting thing in Blackhawks land s don’t expect many fireworks on the free-agent market. This day is a lot more fun for those teams adding this summer.

The NHL free agent frenzy shouldn’t be too fun for Chicago Blackhawks fans.

On the flip side, the Blackhawks are certainly going to see a bunch of their players go to new teams now. Guys like Dominik Kubalik and Dylan Strome are out there just waiting for somebody to contact them. It is strange, despite the rebuild, to see the Hawks let them go for nothing.

Across the league, expect a lot of movement. With trades and free agents out there, a lot is going to change for a few teams. The best example is up in Calgary. Johnny Gaudreau is a free agent now and will be leaving the Flames. He appears to be east coast bound.

There might be a few signings for the Hawks as they need NHL-caliber players to fill out their roster for next season which is going to be a rebuilding year. Nobody they sign is going to be a part of the long-term plans. It would be smart to add guys just so you can flip them at the deadline. It isn’t fun to see the Hawks go through stretches like this but it will be more than worth it one day.
