The Chicago Blackhawks have mostly had Corey Crawford in net for the better part of a decade. He was brilliant all that time but now it is over.
The Chicago Blackhawks are not bringing back Corey Crawford. Stan Bowman is doing a terrible job as a general manager because he keeps backtracking. He keeps saying that they are trying to win but then makes moves like this and then says they are going in the direction of younger players. If they are going to rebuild then letting Crawford go is smart but if they are trying to win it is a disaster of an idea.
They really aren’t going to find anyone better in free agency at this point. They traded Robin Lehner at the deadline and he is now extended long term with the Vegas Golden Knights. With all of that said, now is a time for praising what Corey Crawford has meant to the Chicago Blackhawks organization. He is one of the best players to ever play for the organization and certainly one of (if not number one) best goalies to ever play for the Hawks.
