The Chicago Blackhawks, in all likelihood, are going to be a bad hockey team in 2021-22. They are one of the worst ran teams in the National Hockey League and it continues to get worse and worse. With all of the off-ice issues that they are dealing with right now, it is the perfect time to clean house. If they were to do that, they likely would be doing the future of the franchise well.
It would cause the team to be bad for a while but that is the key to rebuilding sometimes. Landing a franchise-altering draft pick is a possibility if they are bad enough in 2021-22. After the Duncan Keith trade, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are the only core members of the dynasty left. However, there are some good young players to continue building around and developing.
