Chicago Blackhawks: 9 Trades with Non-Contenders to Revitalize the Hawks

As the days wear on toward the NHL trade deadline, it becomes clear that the Hawks, while good, have a flawed roster. A supposed Stanley Cup contender, the Chicago Blackhawks haven't had a victory since a 3-1 win over Florida back on January 20.

While the Hawks can score, they also give up goals at an alarming rate—including a 27th-ranked penalty kill. The areas of need are obvious.

That said, non-contending teams will be looking to deal their players for younger guys, some already in the NHL, some not. How I defined "non-contending" is a team not currently in a playoff spot, and if near a spot, having a negative team plus/minus, as that isn't a winning formula.

All cap hits are courtesy of capgeek.com, and all trades are cap-compliant, as tested by their trade generator.
