Report(s): Blackhawks Do Not Acquire Ilya Sorokin

The Chicago Blackhawks made a trade! At least in theory.

Multiple outlets, including TSN’s Darren Dreger, reported Chicago had acquired the rights to Russian goaltender Ilya Sorokin from the New York Islanders.

However, Dreger and others are now walking back the report.

Sorokin, 24, was originally a third round pick (#78) by the Islanders in the 2014 NHL Draft. He is currently playing for CSKA Moscow in the KHL.

  1. Wonder if the front office is looking for a new GM and doesn’t want Bowman to touch anything before they are ready to give him his walking papers. I really feel that’s coming.

  2. Dreger is a reputable guy and this is a pretty significant screw-up. It will be interesting to find out what happened here Let’s hope serious discussions are underway and they just haven’t crossed the finish line yet.

  3. re: a “screw-up” from Dreger – from what I’m hearing Sorokin’s teammates were told a deal was imminent and ownership of one of the two NHL clubs pulled the plug on the deal at the last second. Would have been a SIGNIFICANT deal from what I’ve heard.

  4. Saying he wanted A and B bonuses plus european clause so he wouldn’t have to go to ahl. May have killed deal, also teammate of Shalunov

  5. If he wanted to go back to khl if he didn’t make nhl roster, because they are not a league he can be loaned too, they would have to release him and lose his rfa rights. Good chance that is the sticking point, only Panarin got that deal from Bowman.

  6. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if it Involved Andrew Ladd and Saad with significant picks and prospects

  7. Seeler played well tonight. He & Gilbert will protect Boqvist, Beaudin. No- not goon it up. Just deter. B & C have their heads up their a…..Seeler& Gilbert played in good programs and will only get better. C- unleash Nylander. He has followed the “rules” playing defensively. That dude’s got talent. Ditto Strome & The Cat.

  8. Russian “prima Dona” leave him there. There is someone here in North America that can fill that position.

  9. Bowman’s got go. Ditto coach. Here’s my lines rest of year-Kubalik Toews Cagguila;
    Cat Strome Dach; Kane Saad nylander;
    Entwhistle highmore carps; Gilbert Boqvist
    Seeler Keith; Murphy Beaudin; Stan is not Sam pollock nor is Scotty…and coach c ain’t no Scotty. Let the horses run, add protection- see what happens!!!

  10. Bowman has to go before he gives away all good players. The hawks would be in the playoffs if they had panarin. Oh what about the winngest active coach in hockey. He said a younger coach could relate better to the younger players. How’s that working out?
