Nick Leddy Appears to Be On The Way Out In Chicago

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

Defenseman Nick Leddy might have played his last game in a Blackhawks sweater.

After the Hawks’ 3-2 shootout loss Friday to the New York Rangers — the second consecutive game in which Leddy was a healthy scratch — coach Joel Quenneville sounded like someone who didn’t expect to have the 23-year-old defenseman on his team for much longer.

‘‘We’ll see,’’ Quenneville said.

The Hawks are above the salary cap and have until Tuesday afternoon to get below it, and Leddy has been at the center of trade discussions all summer.

He’s a 30 point defenseman with a positive corsi and a relatively affordable salary (2.7 mil) and hes only 23. Whats not to like?

Oh, his sheltered starts, low quality of competition, and a total of 2:47 on the penalty kill last year. I am sure Chicago will trade him to Florida for a mid-round pick to once again be freed of cap troubles because Florida is their B%&@*.
