Puck Daddy hockey rumors live chat

Here's the problem with the Chicago Blackhawks: their two most tradable commodities are untradeable.

Nikolai Khabibulin had a $6.75 million cap hit entering this season. Martin Havlat had a $6 million hit. They are the second- and third-highest paid players on the roster behind Brian Campbell.

Yet Chicago spent millions so Cristobal Huet could make Khabi expendable, and Havlat is now down on the team's third line. Can the Blackhawks hope to move either of them?

Join myself, Lyle "Spector" Richardson of Fox Sports and David "Dave" Pagnotta of The Fourth Period as we break down the latest rumors and scuttlebutt about the Blackhawks, Marian Gaborik, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Brendan Shanahan, Mats Sundin, Maxim Afinogenov, Jason Blake, coaches getting canned and we'll even toss in a little Sean Avery chatter for good measure. Chat starts at 1 p.m. EST; as always, bring the funny.
