Johnny Oduya, Chicago Blackhawks, Part Ways

Veteran defenseman, Johnny Oduya, decided that he would no longer wait to see if the Chicago Blackhawks could find room to sign him.  Per his agent, Don Meehan, said today that he would not be re-signing with the team.

Oduya's decision was made easier to move on when the Blackhawks traded fan favorite, Patrick Sharp, to the Dallas Stars last week.  In return, the Blackhawks received veteran defenseman, Trevor Daley.  Daley is somewhat similar to Oduya and will most likely skate along side, Niklas Hjalmarsson, once the season starts.  

The Buffalo Sabres and Dallas Stars are said to be interested in the pursuit of Oduya.

Speaking for all Blackhawk fans, I'd like to say, "Thank you, Johnny, for everything!  And good luck!"
