Are The Blackhawks Trying To Move Johnny Oduya?

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,

John Shannon, a Sportsnet commentator, was on the Jason Gregor show on Team 1260 on Thursday and mentioned that Chicago’s Johnny Oduya is on the block.

Gregor asked Shannon what move cap-strapped Chicago would make to clear cap space for this year.

“I keep hearing Johnny Oduya’s name,” Shannon said. “I keep hearing they’re going to find a way to move Johnny Oduya and get rid of the dollars he  makes, and do it with minimum dollars on that five, six, seven defenceman position.”

Shannon suggested that Oduya was a sixth d-man in Chicago, and that he struggled in other NHL cities when he was asked to do more. “The Johnny Oduya I saw in Chicago I never saw in Atlanta and never saw in Winnipeg.”
