from Scott Cullen of TSN,
What kind of package could the Blackhawks offer for Spezza? It’s not as easy as it sounds when the two most similar salaries in Chicago belong to winger Martin Havlat and goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, because both will be unrestricted free agents at seasons’s end and it would be downright nuts to trade a long-term asset like Spezza for less than a full season of another player.
Perhaps a deal involving Khabibulin would work if other pieces are involved…
Who else might have the pieces to offer?
Columbus has long been searching for a pivot to join Rick Nash on the number one line and the Jackets probably have enough pieces to make a viable offer if they are willing ot surrender some of their top young prospects.
