The Chicago Blackhawks and former general manager Stan Bowman surprised many this offseason with some big power moves making the Hawks into what some believed was a contender.
However that's been far from the case.
With Bowman and head coach Jeremy Colliton fired, new head coach Derek King has slightly turned things around but the team still sits 3-9-2 and 9 points out of a Wild Card spot early in the season.
That has many believing that new general manager Kyle Davidson has been given the job of undoing some of the things Bowman has done and making some moves Bowman would have never made.
That includes possibly trading one of captain Jonathan Toews or sniper Patrick Kane.
From ESPN's Greg Wyshynski:
"When you have many players retire wearing only your uniform, then you’re in trouble. You’re going to have to dangle Toews and Kane out there as the key to winning the Stanley Cup to somebody so that you can reap what you should reap, having paid them so much money through the years and having won your own three Stanley Cups. Give somebody else a chance to get a Cup, but they have to pay."
Both Kane and Toews have full no movement clauses.
Do you see the Hawks parting ways with either of them?
