Despite blockbuster deal, Hawks probably not done

Don't be fooled by the big Byfuglien/Sopel/Eager trade, there could be more movement coming before Friday's NHL Draft.

Numerous sources have reported (even before today's trade) that Kris Versteeg would be the first Blackhawk dealt for a draft pick.
As of Wednesday evening, those rumors are still swirling; The common belief is that the Hawks are considering moving Versteeg for a late 1st rounder and a prospect.
Sources also say that Andrew Ladd is being shopped heavily, with the Vancouver Canucks in pursuit. 
Today's trade cleared up a good amount of cap space for the Hawks, but more is needed. Don't be surprised if Bowman looks to stockpile even more draft picks before Friday. 
Just something to think about.
