The Chicago Blackhawks need Dylan Strome and Alex DeBrincat to produce in order to have a chance to win regularly going forward.
For a very long time now, the Chicago Blackhawks have known that they were going to have Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews there to lead the way in multiple facets of the game. Well, in 2019-20 they were relying on Dylan Strome and Alex DeBrincat to carry the secondary scoring. Add Dominik Kubalik to the mix and you could have a playoff team if the previous four play the way that we know that they can.
Well, Toews and Kane had the years we were predicting they would have but Strome and DeBrincat did not. They had okay numbers but their 2018-19 numbers suggested that they would take over this team in the coming years. They both took a step back but it is fair to assume that they will get back to normal next season.
