Patrick Sharp

So we all know about Chicago's cap situation and heard guys like Versteeg, Campbell, Huet & Sharp being on the block. Two of whom I can definitely see being traded (Versteeg & Sharp) and the other two are simply un-moveable. With a cap hit of 5.625 for the 33 year old Cristobal Huet and a 7.140 for Brian Campbell, no GMs would touch those contracts with a 10-foot poll. 

Let's focus on Patrick Sharp. 25 goals, 41 assists in 82 games this season. 11 goals and 11 assists in the playoffs, solid all-around numbers. He's a utility man, plays W or C, just recently won a Stanley Cup ring and can help us with our 5 on 5 scoring, not to mention he used to play for the Flyers. I don't know what Chicago will be asking for in return, possibly Moller/Loktionov, Teubert & a pick but I don't mind giving away those guys.. I'd rather give Moller away before Loktionov, I see Lokti being our future 2nd line center, might be too small for that but hopefully he grows into his body..

Now I'm 100% sure that the acquisition of Patrick Sharp would eliminate the possibility of DL signing Kovalchuk but it wouldn't eliminate the possibility of signing Hamhuis & Matt Cooke..

Lineup next season:

Sharp-Kopitar-Williams
Smyth-Stoll-Brown
M. Cooke/Parse/K. Clifford-Handzus-Simmonds
Richardson-Schenn-Lewis
Clune, Westgarth

Doughty-Hamhuis
Johnson-Scuderi
Greene-Voynov/Martinez
