Bryan Bickell: Amenable to Hometown Discount
Update: Bickell (knee) indicated Thursday that he would be open to signing with the Blackhawks for a hometown discount, ESPN Chicago reports.

Recommendation: The Blackhawks announced Thursday that they will buy out the contracts of both Steve Montador and Rostislav Olesz, giving GM Stan Bowman just over $7 million in cap space to work with for next season. Though the team still needs to re-sign Nick Leddy and possibly Marcus Kruger, a hometown discount would definitely make keeping Bickell a possibility, especially if they’re able to trade Dave Bolland, who makes more than $3 million per year, for a cheaper player.
