In 2009, Kopecky played in 79 games for the Red Wings, scoring 6 goals and 13 assists in some limited ice-time or playing in a lot of defensive situations. He does bring quite a bit of speed to Chicago, which the team is built on at the moment, so this should be a good fit. Whether or not his scoring goes up from here, it's still a tad sketchy.

|Patrick Kane||Brent Seabrook|
|Jonathan Toews||Brian Campbell|
|Andrew Ladd||Brent Sopel|
With this deal and the Hossa deal done already today, the Blackhawks have now got $45.5 million set towards 14 players and have an average salary over $3.2 million now. They have put a lot of money into the team now and they are really beginning to look good with it.
