The Chicago Blackhawks are pretty much done with all their offseason shopping however now find themselves up against the salary cap. 

With the Hawks once again facing salary cap trouble, it looks like a salary dump is coming. 

After acquiring Andrew Shaw, Calvin de Haan and Olli Maatta through trade and signing Robin Lehner and Ryan Carpenter, Chicago only has $2million in available cap space. 

To top it off, the team still needs to sign restricted free agent Brendan Perlini. 

Well it seems like the two sides are pretty far apart, he's one of two forwards the Blackhawks are trying to trade according to Jay Zawaski of 670 The Score. 

Zawaski reports that general manager Stan Bowman is trying to move both Perlini and Artem Anisimov. 

Anisimov has been attached to trade rumors for pretty much a year now and no longer holds a no trade clause so it's very likely we might see him moved before the start of training camp.
