Matthew Barnaby: A fan-favorite in many of the destinations in his solid NHL career, Matthew Barnaby played a year with the Blackhawks in the end of his days in the NHL. Known as a proficient fighter in his day, his best games came with the Sabres and not the Hawks.
Since hanging up the skates he has moved on to a very successful hockey analyst career at ESPN along side Barry Melrose. He often speaks of his large contract that he got from the Blackhawks, and refers to it as robbery.
Curtis Brown: Like Mr. Barnaby, Curtis Brown's best NHL days came in Buffalo, and like Mr. Barnaby, Curtis Brown got a large contract from the Blackhawks only to be bought out after one season.
He has had a breif run with the Sharks since his departure from Chicago, but is now in the minors.
Martin LaPointe: Long known as a gritty role player for the championship Red Wing teams over the years, Marty LaPointe was looked upon to bring leadership to a young and up and coming Blackhawks team.
He was briefly the captain for the injured Adrian Aucoin (will not mention in this article), and had a decent run with the Blackhawks at best.
Since being traded to Ottawa where he played in only 18 games before being released LaPointe has been looking for work on the ice, and so far nothing had come.
Peter Bondra: In what was a run a futile attempt to make the playoffs in 2008, the Blackhawks brought in the aging former Capitals captain.
It cannot be considered a faulire as the aura of Bondra no doubt rubbed off on the eventual Cup champs. He also scored his 500th career goal with the Blackhawks at the United Center before retiring at season's end.
Jason Williams: It cannot be considered to be a complete bad move to bring in Jason Williams as he did produce numbers for the Hawks. He has since gone to the Thrashers, Blue Jackets, and Red Wings. He is a free agent at this time.
