Jimmy Butler's time as the face of the team as over as John Paxson got the deal he wanted to start a rebuilding process. To do so, he sent the three-time All-Star to the Timberwolves for a pair of youngsters and the seventh pick of the draft - a freshman from Arizona.

That was a major topic of Jarrett Payton's talk with Josh Frydman "From The Tower" on Sunday's show and you can watch that in the video above.

Meanwhile the Blackhawks shook things up by trading away Niklas Hjalmarsson and Artemi Panarin on Friday. In the latter trade, they brought Brandon Saad back to the team two years after they traded him away.

So with the changes along with Marian Hossa's announcement that he's out for next season, are the Blackhawks a viable Stanley Cup contender next season?

Josh and Jarrett discuss in the video above.
