On the latest SCH Podcast, Brad, Brandon and Dave react to the Blackhawks trading Artem Anisimov to the Senators for Zack Smith. The trio discusses why Anisimov was traded, the role Smith could have with the Blackhawks next season and the areas he benefits the team compared to Anisimov.

The trio also talks about possibility of general manager Stan Bowman being done making moves and what to look forward to during Friday’s scrimmage at prospect camp.

(Brad and Dave discuss vacation packing habits at the start.)
