    And now... The party is over. Brandon Saad, who was transforming into the next Marian Hossa, was traded to Columbus. I realize he was asking for a bigger contract than Chicago could afford but this one stings. The only thing that would make me happy is to see Bickell traded immediately with his ridiculous and undeserved contract.

    Yes, the Saad trade blew me away. It was so unexpected. This hard salary cap is tough to deal with. Also, you know the other teams would love to see the Blackhawks team broken up.

    That's why I would prefer an mlb like system with a luxury tax instead of hard cap. Now you guys and girls might experience the same thing we did after our last Stanley cup finals in 2009

    Teams are investing a ton of money into development, scouting and if they do it well they should be able to reap the benefits of that

    The Saad trade was so unexpected, can't believe Bowman decided to trade him over Bickell, Sharp and Oduya

    Bickell and Sharp will be traded more than likely because they're still over the cap. At least I hope Bickell is because he has to go. As for Oduya, he is an UFA so there was no trade to be had.

    On a side note, I love Saad but he is now the star in Columbus. He is not going to produce anywhere near as much as he did next to Toews in Chicago. Coach Q had a system that was fast and played matchups better than any other team which only helped him succeed. He is an amazing player but in no way, shape or form going to be the guy that brings a Cup to Columbus.

    Columbus is building a hard working tough to play against team so Saad will fit in very well. I guess the plan is to put him on Johanson's wing which should still create some nice numbers.

    Also Saad just made the Nyquist situation more interesting. I think the biggest thing for the Blackhawk going forward will be to extend Seabrook because that guy will be a highly thought after defenseman that's for sure.

    I read Kruger and Oduya are waiting for the Hawks to figure out the cap situation because they want to sign again.

    Also, not dissing Saad. But he will NEVER play with talent comparable to Toews/Hossa anywhere else much less Columbus. He will be good but his numbers will drop without those two.

    Well Toews is a top 3 center in this league and Hossa is just ageless with the exception of Pittsburgh no other team can offer that .

    That's my whole point. I would have LOVED to keep Saad because he is very talented. But I'd be fooling myself if I believed he would be anywhere near his Chicago level without Toews and Hossa. He will succeed but I also wouldn't be surprised to see if he doesn't live up to $6m per year.

    Only time will tell. Chicago has taught me this happens.

    Pippen is no one without Jordan
    Briggs is no one without Urlacher

    Where will Saad fall? I wish him all the success he can have except beating the Hawks.

    A lot of it will depend on the development of Johansson.

    As far Jordan well that guy is the Gretzky of basketball.

    Wow Tarasenko just signed a steal of a contract well done blues

    It's a shame for the Blues that Oshie is gone though.

    Yup, that trade will hurt them for a long time just like the Hamilton trade will Boston,I don't even think they are a playoff team this season.
