NHL Rumour Report: Dominik Kubalik frontrunners surface

The Blackhawks plan to be busy in the coming days.

- The phone is ringing off the hook in Chicago as GM Kyle Davidson fields offers on several core players, with Dominik Kubalik rumoured to be at the center of trade discussions. 

-  Kubalik is an arbitration eligible RFA this summer and may not figure into the Blackhawks plans long term. Though his offensive game has taken a tumble this year, the Blackhawks could probably retain some salary to find a taker for what's left of his 3.7 million dollar cap hit.

- Two teams are reportedly in the mix for Kubalik's services: Anaheim and Edmonton. The Oilers in particular could use a reclamation project winger with upside for their playoff push, while Anaheim may look at Kubalik more as a long term investment.
- Davidson has made it no secret that the team plans on undertaking an extensive rebuild, with many core players such as Kubalik, Marc-Andre Fleury, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Dylan Strome and Brandon Hagel all generating trade buzz. Chicago figures to be at the center of everything in the days leading up to the deadline.
