I have never been impressed with Sam's game. Does not have great speed. Is only ok defensively. Has scored half his goals on the PP.
I think Sam would return more than E Kane because of people seeing potential and he is still on ECL and wouldn't cost as much.
I think Chicago would be interested in getting him and move him to center P Kane or stay at RW with Toews. I just don't know what we could get from Chicago.
They may be shopping VanRiemsdyk since they won't be able to protect him.
Maybe Larsson and Reinhart and Chicago's 2nd to Chicago for VanRiemsyk, Krueger, and Hartman.
I 'm guessing on the value of each of these players, not sure if it is not enough or more than enough.
