Seravalli: “The (Chicago) Blackhawks got a lot of calls for it. He has a seven-team no-trade list. Other teams called include the Edmonton and Los Angeles Kings.
Here’s the thing about McCabe, his no-trade list of seven teams, you say why seven teams? This includes seven Canadian teams for possibly American-born defensemen.

What if you could entice the Chicago Blackhawks, who have plenty of cap space, to keep half of Jake McCabe and get him $2 million a year for each of the next two years?
