There's one trade some Chicago Blackhawks fans still haven't gotten over. 

That of course is the Artemi Panarin trade. 

Panarin has continued his career and enjoyed success as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets, while the Blackhawks have missed the playoffs for two straight years and Brandon Saad has been underwhelming. 

Could Panarin come back to Chicago during free agency?

A couple of months ago we heard there was mutual interest however that seems to have changed. 

Mark Lazerus of The Athletic revealed on Wednesday that Panarin has zero interest in coming back to Chicago. 

"Panarin's not coming back. He's not interested, from what I've heard. Besides, if Kevin Hayes is getting $7.14 million, Panarin's going to get $82.9 million."

Sounds like you can forget that idea.
