28 Comments

The Chicago Blackhawks aren’t done yet. They could still come back and beat the Ducks in the Western Conference Final. Nobody’s written them off.

But whenever their season ends, even if it’s after winning the Stanley Cup, it’s going to be an interesting summer in Chicago.

Pending unrestricted free agents include three defensemen — Johnny Oduya, Michal Rozsival, and Kimmo Timonen — plus veteran forwards Antoine Vermette, Brad Richards, and Andrew Desjardins. At the same time, Brandon Saad is a pending restricted free agent, and Brent Seabrook will be eligible to sign an extension on July 1.
