The Chicago Blackhawks are committed to keeping Brent Seabrook long-term.
According to Sportsnet's Elliott Friedman, don't be surprised if the Hawks make Seabrook's contract a top priority in the next couple of weeks. Seabrook can be an unrestricted free-agent after next season, but Stan Bowman has already said that he wants to keep the big defenseman. The 30-year-old is very valuable to the Blackhawks, but even if he takes less money to stay, he will eat up a good chunk of cap space. With so much money committed to Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and others, it may not be possible for the Hawks to keep everybody. Jun 28 - 10:00 PM

Brent Seabrook thinks how Chicago starts in Game 5 will be a big factor in determining their finish.

"We've got to come out with a good effort off the start," Seabrook said. "I think our starts have been key. When we start well, we usually give ourselves a chance to have a good game and get a win. That's going to be tomorrow's theme, I'm sure: getting off to a good start and trying to do some good things in a hostile building in Anaheim." Chicago is 7-1 in the playoffs when they score first and 3-3 when they surrender the opening marker. The Blackhawks are also 5-0 when leading through 20 minutes.

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal is reporting that the Oilers are interested in Brent Seabrook at the end of the season.

Matheson also writes that the Oilers are kicking the tires in regards to Dion Phaneuf but their interest is not nearly as strong as it will be with Seabrook.
