What would a Chicago Blackhawks rebuild look like if they did it right?
The Chicago Blackhawks claim that they are rebuilding their roster. It isn’t a very good roster anymore and their record over the past three seasons shows why. They won the Stanley Cup in 2015 and haven’t won a playoff series since. They haven’t even been to the playoffs (the normal playoffs) since 2017. They made it to the bubble in the NHL’s “Return to Play” but they would have not even sniffed the playoffs in a normal year.
So, if they were to actually rebuild the way they’re supposed to (which is unlikely), it would be really painful. Fans would see some of the players that they have come to love over the years go if the rebuild was done the right way. They did a good job building from the ground up in the mid-2000s and that is what they need to do again.
