According to several published reports, the Blackhawks are feverishly trying to obtain another starting goaltender before today's 3pm ET trade deadline.
The Hawks have been continuously linked to Florida Panthers netminder Tomas Vokoun, who appears willing to waive his no-trade clause, but was not approached yesterday by Panthers management about it.
Citing multiple sources, the Chicago Daily Herald claims the Hawks have been trying to trade Cristobal Huet and his $5.625 million salary cap hit.
One rumor making the rounds late Tuesday involved Huet being dealt to the New York Islanders, Vokoun heading to Chicago, and Isles netminder Dwayne Roloson ending up in Florida, with more players believed to be involved.
The Islanders are reportedly willing to take on salary, prompting speculation that Huet might be a fit.
It remains unclear if the Hawks will be able to make a move between the pipes, but with the deadline quickly approaching, Chicago GM Stan Bowman is undoubtedly weighing all options.
