The Chicago Blackhawks, with their generational talent Connor Bedard, embarked on the season with the hope of success. However, a month into the campaign, the team has faced its share of challenges in a competitive Western Conference.

Currently holding a record of 4-7-0, the Blackhawks find themselves near the lower ranks of the Western Conference. This situation has naturally sparked rumors about the potential departure of some of the team's veteran leaders, who may be seeking a shot at the Stanley Cup elsewhere.

Among these veterans, two prominent names have been frequently mentioned: Corey Perry and Nick Foligno. Both were acquired during the offseason and are now the subjects of trade rumors.

According to reports from nhltraderumors.me, the trade market for Perry and Foligno is heating up. It appears that the Blackhawks' initial plan to make them available by the trade deadline still stands.


For Corey Perry, two teams have surfaced as potential destinations. The first is the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team often criticized for lacking physicality despite their acquisitions. Perry's veteran leadership and physical presence could be valuable additions for the Maple Leafs.

The second team reportedly interested in Perry is the Tampa Bay Lightning, where he previously played from 2021 to 2023. His experience and ability to adapt to different roles within a lineup make him a valuable asset for a playoff contender.


On the other hand, Nick Foligno has also drawn interest from two teams. The New York Rangers are looking to add him to their roster, providing depth and leadership to their forward lines.

The Los Angeles Kings have also been linked to Foligno, as they seek depth scoring to complement their top forwards. Foligno's ability to contribute to winning teams, demonstrated during his time with the Boston Bruins, makes him an appealing target for both these teams.


While the Blackhawks brought in Perry and Foligno for leadership, it seems likely that they will find new homes by season's end, serving their purpose in Chicago and potentially bringing in valuable assets for the team's future.

As the trade deadline approaches, expect more rumors and developments regarding their potential destinations to emerge.
