The Chicago Blackhawks will be making some roster moves this offseason as general manager Stan Bowman looks to continue his reset and avoid the cap crunch. The most talked about names so far are UFA Corey Crawford along with a possible buyout of Olli Maatta. Those are names possibly on their way out but what about guys possibly on their way in?We heard some chatter about a possible Brandon Saad for Max Domi trade and now it seems that Bowman was close to landing Kasperi Kapanen from the Leafs. According to NHL insider Pierre LeBrun, conversations fell apart because of one specific piece the Leafs' wanted. The Blackhawks #17 overall pick. This is eventually what got the deal done between the Penguins and Leafs. Would you have moved the Hawks' first round pick for Kapanen?
