    For depth purposes you can do worse than Davidson.

    Good 7th-8th D-man that can play up the line-up due to injuries. Potential there for more.

    Wish we would have done this instead of wasting our time and resources on Jerabek. Good depth d-man Chicago. Glad he isn't out of the league, he's capable, if unspectacular.

    You must be confusing him with someone else. Brandon Davidson hasn't had reported locker room isseus.

    Good for you Davy! He’s a solid #6/7 who can play up the lineup when needed, and not look out of place

    No he doesn’t. He’s the opposite of that. The guy has battled against all odds to earn everything, and has a ton of respect in the room. Don’t make things up. This is how rumours get started

    Can't possibly be worse than the abomination that is Brandon Manning. The latter will play more though, thanks to incompetent coaching.

    You mean thanks to our GM who signed that horrid defender to be a top 4 dman

    If Q buries Stanley's big FA acquisition in press box we all know Bowman will make moves to force his player in

    Might even go sign a David Rundblad to force Q to choose between which bigger abomination of Bowman's to play

    That's league minimum, now. So good for Davidson to make the team, and get a contract. But also good for Chicago to fill a sweater for peanuts.

    The Blackhawks are finally in a comfortable place, cap wise, for the first time since their Cup in '09. If they're close to a playoff spot at the deadline, don't be surprised if they go shopping for rentals. Not to mention the serious possibility that they bring Panarin back if he hits UFA.

    Side note: I love it every time a guy on a PTO gets a contract.

    Decent bottom-pairing defenseman. I'd prefer him over Pelech, Mayfield, and Sbisa.
