Five possible Blackhawks targets in free agency

Five possible Blackhawks targets in free agency

The Blackhawks enter free agency, which opens Friday, with a bit of salary-cap space given that they passed on re-signing Andrew Shaw. Shortly after trading Shaw to the Canadiens, general manager Stan Bowman declared that the Hawks "don't have a salary-cap problem."

That line might not help the Hawks if they are trying to get some prized free agents to take a discount to come play for them. But while the Hawks likely don't have the cap room to make a huge splash in the free-agent waters, they have options, especially if some players they are familiar with want to come back. Here is a look at five possibilities.
