Chicago would move him at the deadline only if they are out of the playoff race. The hawks after all of the preseason hype want to make the playoff this year, and assuming Havlat is still healthy (a big assumption) then he would be a big part of making that happen regardless whether they have plans to resign him or not.TheHammer24 wrote:KG wrote:Pens have been linked to Havlat for a while now...
He is a pending UFA who most likely will not be back with the Hawks. Wonder what the asking price is?
The Hawks can definitely get something for him at the deadline, so I don't expect them to dish him for nothing, but the Pens have to be close to having room if someone's explanation of Whit and Gonch on the long term IR is correct.

Why would Sundin play for Chicago? Sundin has 2 options for when he returns to play.
1) Take the most money.
2) Chance to win a Stanley Cup.
He can't have both of those together. If he takes the chance to win a Stanley Cup, the lower he goes with a contract means most likely the better team he will go too.
1) Canucks offering him 20 Million for 2 seasons. 5 Million per year in signing bonus, 5 million per year contract.
2) There is Rumors the Ducks might be going for him trying to drop Kunitz in a salary dump. I'm sure Detroit would love to have another Swed but there is no more room. I don't know how teams like Montreal, Rangers, & Ottawa could add him, but I've heard rumors. I really don't see him going to the Blackhawks.
