Is Stan Bowman starting a rebuild for the Chicago Blackhawks? A few recent moves suggest so.
The Chicago Blackhawks did something that should make heads turn. Just a few days after announcing that they weren’t going to bring back Corey Crawford in 2020-21, they announced a trade that is strange. They sent Brandon Saad and Dennis Gilbert to the Colorado Avalanche for Nikita Zadorov and Anton Lindholm. It is a trade that suggests that the team is going backward which is a ridiculous decision based on recent events.
For a few years now, Stan Bowman has preached that the organization has a certain standard and are trying to win. Since then, they have made some questionable moves that make you wonder whether or not they are true to that standard or not. They make moves that make it look like they are rebuilding and then they make moves that make it look like they are trying to win.
