Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks missed the playoffs…. again. For an organization that has won three of the past 10 Stanley Cups, this is beyond unacceptable. Everyone in the organization acknowledges this and vows to make the necessary changes. Then again, that’s what they said last offseason. 

 

If you are a Blackhawks fan, what makes you think this year will be any different? 

 

Maybe it’s the types of players they added through free agency. Maybe it’s the trades they made both during last season and this offseason. Probably a combination of both. Either way, there seems to be a buzz surrounding the team again, something that has been missing the past couple of seasons. It might just be time to get excited about Blackhawks playoff hockey again.

Graduating Players

Dylan Strome- Strome seems to have played his last AHL game. His chemistry with Alex Debrincat is too good, and to paraphrase Dr Evil, they complete each other. 

 

Chad Krys and Nicolas Beaudin- both rearguards are entering their first year of professional hockey and both should start the season in Rockford unless someone has an amazing training camp.
