The Chicago Blackhawks are not where many people expected them to be and that's fighting for a playoff spot. 

With the NHL trade deadline creeping up sooner than expected, we've heard some chatter about what the Chicago Blackhawks might do. 

We've heard that Dylan Strome could be on the move but what about pieces that the Hawks could bring in to reward the team for their effort so far?

Well according to one NHL insider don't expect too much. 

According to Frank Seravali of TSN, the Blackhawks won't be doing much besides acquiring bad contracts. 

"One team to keep an eye on over the next month is Chicago... they've let it be known they're a team that's willing to take on bad contracts, they've got almost $22million in LTIR cap space."

Do you feel this is disappointing for guys like Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith?
