During any NHL organization's rebuild, the general manager's role is to monitor teams facing cap space issues or struggling to sign their star players for various reasons.

Some teams may encounter financial challenges, preventing them from accommodating a player's impressive performance within their cap, or they might opt for a rebuild or retooling strategy after a poor start.
According to ESPN analyst John Buccigross, there is a strong possibility that the Blackhawks will make a pitch for pending unrestricted free agent William Nylander of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Much discussion surrounds Nylander's status with the team, given his continually rising performance and undeniable talent.
The Maple Leafs' former eighth-overall draft choice in 2014 may have priced himself out of contention with his current level of play.
At 27 years old and projected to command a salary north of $10 million per season, the Blackhawks possess ample cap space to accommodate this contract. A player of Nylander's calibre would significantly enhance the offence, particularly with Connor Bedard at center.
As Nylander reaches his peak, it would be prudent for General Manager Kyle Davidson to explore all options to secure this star player, solidifying the team's top line for years to come.
