Maybe I misheard Stan Bowman on Saturday. I would have sworn he said he didn't expect the team to make any moves and said that carrying eight defenseman was a burden.
I must have heard him wrong because on Monday, Bowman made another trade and brought in an eighth defensman. I'm serious, you can't make this stuff up.
The Blackhawks acquired defensemen David Rundbald and Mathieu Brisebois from the Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes in exchange for a 2014 second round draft pick.Rundbald will report to the Hawks while Brisebois will report to Rockford. Rundbald will wear No. 5.
