It shouldn't come as a surprise that so many members of the Stanley Cup-winning 2009-2010 Chicago Blackhawks team are now shopping their homes, because half the team was traded away in the off-season. Case in point: A tipster informs us that Dustin "Big Buff" Byfuglien is looking to sell this snappy-looking French country home at 1822 W. School St. in Roscoe Village. Big Buff was shipped to Atlanta in June in a seven-player blockbuster trade, less than two years after he purchased this 4,200 square-foot home. Despite the vintage look, the 5BD, 3.5BA home was new when Byfuglien moved in. The place was built by Doyles Construction, a suburban company that specializes in the farmhouse look. (For more on the place, check out this 2008 Deal Estate column.) Byfuglien bought the place for $1.26 million in December of 2008, and it's currently listed for $1.29 million.
