Thank you Big Buff, Sopel, and Eager for your amazing time here in Chicago. Our Blackhawks fans are grateful for what each of brought to the table while in Chicago.

Today the Blackhawks planned towards the 2010-11 season by making a big offseason move. According to multiple media reports, the Hawks are in the process of trading Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Sopel, Ben Eager and prospect Akim Aliu to the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for the 24th overall pick in Friday’s NHL Entry Draft, along with the 54th pick, veteran center Marty Reasoner and prospect Jeremy Morin. The trade is not yet official but within hockey circles this deal is going to happen. The Blackhawks are pressed by the salary cap so this was a move to clear space and also acquire draft picks and young talent. We will all remember the 2009-10 season for the way Byfuglien, Sopel, and Eager played. Their names are forever engraved with the 2010 NHL Champions! What do you think about the move…
