former Blackhawks defensemen becomes biggest asset on the trade block

As a result of losing to the Toronto Maple Leafs last weekend, he requested a trade and is generating interest from a number of NHL teams.
There is always a need for blueline help, especially for a physical defenseman like Zadarov with an offensive touch.
The Toronto Maple Leafs, Dallas Stars, and New Jersey Devils are among the teams interested in the defenseman.
It seems like Zadarov would be guaranteed post-season play if he landed in any of these three franchises.
Depending on when Craig Conroy decides to make the move, Zadarov has a lot to offer on the blue line for his next team, as the Flames have said they will honor his request, but on their own timeline.
In 82 games for the Flames last season, Zadarov scored 14 goals and 21 points, while racking up 80 PIMS and 174 hits.
Any team that acquires him next will have a verifiable physical force on the ice.
DO YOU THINK NIKITA ZADAROV IS HEADED TO A CUP CONTENDER?
