Blackhawks trade Brandon Saad to Columbus


Brandon Saad wanted to stay in Chicago. Stan Bowman wanted him to stay in Chicago. All of Chicago wanted him to stay in Chicago.

Instead, one of the best young players in the game — a guy Joel Quenneville repeatedly said had the potential to be one of the best power forwards in the game — will play for the Columbus Blue Jackets next season.

“This is a business and we have a job to do,” Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said after dealing away Saad and two prospects for 27-year-old center Artem Anisimov, 20-year-old winger Marko Dano, former Hawks winger Jeremy Morin, and 25-year-old winger Corey Tropp. The Hawks sent defenseman Michael Paliotta and forward Alex Broadhurst to Columbus along with Saad.
