I don’t know what the Blackhawks are going to do in free agency to fix their blown chance at another Stanley Cup, but because I’m a pleaser, not a teaser, I’m here to help with a list of 10 (mostly) unrestricted free agents:

Jonathan Toews let it be known before the puck dropped that his Chicago Blackhawks needed to play ticked off Saturday at Staples Center, then backed his words with two first-period goals.
If more of his teammates don't join his cause, however, more...

Trying to capture the spirit of the thing after the Blackhawks' 4-3 loss Saturday to the Kings in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals:

The tension and the magnitude of the past two Stanley Cup champions slugging it out, toe to toe, is compelling enough.
Add in a Game 5 double-overtime epic and the superb play of superstars and emerging young players, and these Western Conference finals...

The Kings surrendered an average of only 2.12 goals a game in leading the NHL in fewest regular-season goals allowed, but as they head to their third Game 7 of the postseason tonight, they’ve been struck by nine goals in their last two Western...

Michal Handzus’ career seemed near its end when the Kings let him depart as a free agent after the 2010-11 season and he signed with San Jose.
But the Slovakian center is still going strong at age 37 and has become the second-line center for the...

The Los Angeles Kings scored five goals in the third period to transform a troubling two-goal deficit late in the second period into a 6-2 victory Wednesday at United Center that ties the Western Conference finals against the defending Stanley Cup-...

Patrick Kane had every reason not to play Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings.
Hours before the start of the Blackhawks’ 5-3 win, Kane learned that his grandfather, Donald Kane, had died.
As difficult as it was for Kane to play, he put on...

I was going to write about which players the Blackhawks should trade, and I still might.
