NHL Rumors: Chicago Blackhawks Receiving Multiple Trade Offers for 2 Players

The Chicago Blackhawks currently sit 11-17-4 on the season and don't appear set to be making a playoff push anytime soon. The team has a number of players who have been discussed recently in trades and today we focus on three players who other teams are calling about.

Dylan Strome

The one-time top prospect has struggled in Chicago this season, regardless of who was coaching the team. Even though Strome has recorded just seven points in 22 games, he's only 24 years old and there's a number of other teams who will be willing to give him a look. A few teams believed to be in contact with the Blackhawks include the Boston Bruins, Edmonton Oilers, Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers. Strome is in the final season of his contract before he becomes a restricted free-agent this summer. While it's unknown where exactly he gets dealt, don't expect to see Strome finish this season in the windy city.

Marc-Andre Fleury

While he's been better of late, it's still be a disappointing season for the Flower in Chicago. The team had Stanley Cup aspirations when they acquired him and his $7-million salary before the season but unfortunately it hasn't worked out. Fleury is 3-1-0 in his past five games, including one shut out against the Montreal Canadiens where he picked up his historic 500th win. Teams interested in the veteran goaltender include the Edmonton Oilers, Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild and Washington Capitals. Expect to see the Flower decide where he finishes the season sometime before Mar. 21. 

The Blackhawks are expected to make some trades before this season's deadline and Strome and Fleury are the two likely out the door first. Honorable mentions go out to Calvin de Haan and Ryan Carpenter and don't expect the likes of Patrick Kane or Jonathan Toews to be shipped out just yet. Those types of conversations won't be taking place until the summer.
