Trade Bryan Bickell of the Carolina Hurricanes Back to Chicago So He Can Retire At Home

This petition had 1,246 supporters

As many of us already know... Bryan Bickell of the Carolina Hurricanes was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. He has made the public statement that this will be his final season so he can retire with pride. Last year while still playing with the Chicago Blackhawks he had been improperly diagnosed with Vertigo. At the end of the season, he was traded by the Blackhawks to the Carolina Hurricanes and then sent to the AHL to play for the Carolina Checkers. He recently made his return to the Hurricanes and shortly thereafter made his retirement statement. 

Because Bickell spent the majority of his NHL career in Chicago we are asking that the Hurricanes allow him to be sent back to the Carolina Checkers, traded to the Rockford Icehogs and then reassigned to his beloved Chicago Blackhawks and finish out his career as it should have been.

We know this is a huge request but for the overall health, happiness, and pride the Hockey community in whole believes this will be the best option to help Bickell maintain his health. His wife, 2 daughters and every last Blackhawks fan are hopeful Carolina will do good by Bickell & his health and make this happen. Thank you for your time.
