The Chicago Blackhawks were sellers at the trade deadline. Now, looking back, was that decision a mistake as a franchise?
The Chicago Blackhawks had a very bad weekend. They were defeated by the putrid Detroit Red Wings on Friday night before being blanked by the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night. It was a weekend that saw plenty of opportunities go by. Now, a good amount of points out of the playoffs, it is looking bleak to make something of this up and down season.
So that will, of course, make anyone wonder what went wrong. Was it a mistake to be sellers at the Trade Deadline this year? The two big names that were sent packing were Robin Lehner and Erik Gustafsson. Lehner went to the Vegas Golden Knights while Gustafsson was sent off the Calgary Flames. There might be people who see that as a mistake but it clearly wasn’t.
