The Chicago Blackhawks had an up and down season but ultimately it was another season that saw them well out of the playoffs at the final buzzer. They wasted away what could have been an extra few years of contention and it is sort of sad to see. Unfortunately, they aren’t going to be a contender again for a long time. They need to ask some hard questions and execute in order to actually rebuild the team the right way.
The Chicago Blackhawks need to make some major changes in order to rebuild properly.
Anyone who expects Jonathan Toews to make up nine standings points is delusional. He is amazing but this team is not good enough at full strength. The depth is very weak and it isn’t getting better any time soon. They need to actually rebuild the roster which is going to be a painful process. In fact, and some people aren’t going to want to hear this, but it is time to trade Patrick Kane while they can still get a lot for him.
