Many great Blackhawks players have been lost in the Salary Cap era. Trades such as Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets and Patrick Sharp to the Dallas Stars are still hard for some Blackhawks fans to swallow, even though it has been almost a year.
The latest trade rumor involves 24-year-old forward Andrew Shaw and if Chicago can afford to resign him. Shaw and Coach Joel Quenneville have both stated they want him to remain on the team.
Yesterday, fans showed similar feelings when the Blackhawks Twitter account announced Shaw was voted “Unsung Hero” in the Fan Choice Awards.
Shaw is popular among every demographic of Blackhawks fans. Male or female; young or old, Shaw is a favorite and it shows. General Manager Stan Bowman may have to work some magic to resign Shaw, but the fans have spoken.
