Chicago Blackhawks – Bryan Bickell

For a player heading into unrestricted free agency, Bickell picked the right time and situation to make headlines.  After putting up 9 goals and 23 points in 48 regular season games, Bickell caught fire in the playoffs, matching his goal total with 9 and adding 8 assists for 17 points in just 23 playoff games and was even given some consideration for the Conn Smythe Trophy.  He will get a big pay raise either from Chicago or whoever gets him signed after July 5th.
