You'll have to excuse me (George) for suggesting that one does not plug one hole by creating another, per Sportsnet's Ryan Dixon:
Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp could be on the move this summer.
The Blackhawks are looking to add a centre, and Sharp is available as a potential trade chip, Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos said Tuesday on Hockey Central at Noon on Sportsnet 590 The Fan.
In 82 games last season, the Winnipeg native led the Blackhawks with 34 goals and 78 points. He also won an Olympic gold medal while representing Canada at the Sochi Games. Sharp, who won Stanley Cups with Chicago in 2010 and 2013, has three years remaining on a contract that includes a modified no-trade clause and an annual salary cap hit of $5.9 million.
The 32-year-old has been with the Blackhawks since being acquired from the Flyers in 2005. Sharp was selected 95th overall by Philadelphia in the 2001 draft and has amassed 483 points in 677 career regular season games.
Continued with a little video of Kypreos stating as much out loud...
