Andrew Ladd Forward
2015-16 stats: 25 goals, 21 assists Ladd said after the season that he’s at point in his career where he cares more about being in a good situation than getting a big payday. That’s good news for the Hawks if they want to try and bring back the 30-year-old on a one-year discounted deal. But Ladd reportedly turned down a $6 million-perseason extension from Winnipeg last season, so he’d have to take a big discount to be back in a Hawks sweater.
Kris Versteeg Forward
2015-16 stats: 15 goals, 23 assists Remember him from the 2010 and 2015 Stanley Cup runs? Well, he’s a free agent after starting last season in Carolina and finishing it in Los Angeles. Could a third trip to Chicago be in the cards for the 30-yearold? Crazier things have happened.
Lee Stempniak Forward
2015-16 stats: 19 goals, 32 assists Stempniak, 33, is a journeyman who could help provide forward depth at a good cost for the Hawks with Shaw gone. He played for New Jersey and Boston
