The Chicago Blackhawks had a down year but still have a shot at the Cup.
The Chicago Blackhawks didn’t have that good of a year in 2019-20. They went into the season with expectations of being a playoff team. Whether or not those were realistic expectations is a topic for another day but they failed to meet them nonetheless. This is a franchise trying to hang on to the last bit of hope they can before some extra hard times. Sometimes, that is what happens when the players who made you so good for so long start to move on.
They were sellers at the trade deadline which shows that even management saw their chances of being a playoff team as pretty much done. Well, not long after the trade deadline hit the coronavirus took over the continent and caused sports to shut down. That left people wondering if, when, and how the season would come back.
