Report: Nylander Trade A No Go For Chicago

Jack PorterCorrespondent INovember 17, 2008

A trade was in the works between the Washington Capitals and the Chicago Blackhawks. The trade was rumoured to have involved Capitals center Michael Nylander.

The Blackhawks were reportedly interested in Nylander but rejected the offer after the Capitals said they wanted youngster Dustin Byfuglien.

Nylander has nine points in 16 games for Washington this season and would have to approve any deal involving him because of his no movement clause.

Meanwhile Dustin Byfuglien has loads of potential, but is too steep of a price for Chicago. Although, it is believed the two teams are still talking about a possible deal.

Also, Chicago is still very much interested in free agent Brendan Shanahan.
