Stillman for Carlsson is a wash.
So this trade basically comes down to Connolly + Borgstrom + the 7th round pick versus Wallmark.
Connolly is a cap dump and does have term but it's manageable for the Hawks and there is more than enough room for him.
Connolly can still play in the NHL and with so many key veteran players on LTIR, he could be desperately needed down the stretch in locking down a playoff spot.
Borgstrom is a former 1st round pick and is doing quite well overseas.
Although he is not really a blue-chip prospect anymore, he could be a force to be reckoned with if he plays for the Hawks as well as he's playing overseas.
After being traded by Carolina, Wallmark has never been the same.
The fact that Wallmark is a 4th round pick from 2014 and only signed with Chicago for under a million last October suggests he doesn't have much upside anymore.
And the Hawks get a pick for the upcoming draft, which is alway important!
There is more to like here from Chicago's point of view than from Florida's.
I voted for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Like if you did too!
