“What happens, happens,” Gustafsson said Tuesday. “If I get traded or stay here, it’s something I have to deal with. But I want to stay here and help this team win.”
Gustafsson has moved down the depth chart. He has a nice $1.2 million cap hit but could get $3 to $4 million on his next deal. The Blackhawks don’t have a lot of available cap space for next season.
