Blackhawks GM Dale Tallon is getting an itchy finger and don't be surprised if he makes a deal involving G Nikolai Khabibulin, who has been a bust in Chicago. There's talk the Hawks are working on a deal to send Khabibulin to the Oilers. Yes, the Oilers have targeted Washington's Olaf Kolzig and Khabibulin hasn't played well, but Khabibulin might be better if he had a decent team in front of him. The fact the Hawks are awful has only made the situation worse for Khabibulin in the Windy City. Naturally, Chicago would have to take G Ty Conklin as part of a package in return, but Edmonton might be a nice fit for Khabibulin to get back on track and the club has the cap room to make the deal happen.continued...and as usual for a Sunday, many more rumors...
