The Chicago Daily Herald ran a report over the weekend which stated that the Blackhawks were interested in Carolina Hurricanes center, Matt Cullen. Chicago second line center, Dave Bolland, recently had back surgery and is out indefinitely. Cullen would be a nice plug in for them, for a couple of reasons. Most notably, his contract would run out at the end of this season.
The Hawks will be hard pressed to fit several of their young stars under the salary cap next year.
If the Hurricanes can not reverse their losing ways, the deal would make sense for them if they got the right return. As long as the Canes are out of the playoff race, expect many more rumors to come.
