Chicago Blackhawks Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Taylor Raddysh

The Chicago Blackhawks have a valuable trading asset in Taylor Raddysh, and they could look to move him because of it. Raddysh carries an immensely small cap hit next season and will remain a restricted free agent after it expires, so the Blackhawks could get a good return for him (look at the Tanner Jeannot trade). As a result, let's discuss three possible landing spots for him.

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Toronto Maple Leafs could be interested in Raddysh this offseason. This is especially true when noting that they have multiple pending UFAs who are bottom-six forwards. Raddysh would be an easy player to afford and would provide them with more secondary scoring in the process. 

Minnesota Wild: The Minnesota Wild have limited cap space due to the Zach Parise and Ryan Suter buyout penalties. However, they also want to improve their roster, so they stand out as a possible team who could target Raddysh. He would provide them with a solid middle-six forward option, as he has 20 goals and 37 points in 76 games this season.

Vegas Golden Knights: The Vegas Golden Knights have limited cap space, but they would still be able to afford Raddysh. When noting that they have pending UFAs like Ivan Barbashev and Phil Kessel, they should be looking to add to their middle-six forward group. Thus, expect them to be in on Raddysh if he's officially made available.
