The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup three times since 2010. Last year the Blackhawks were not able to make it to the playoffs, this is the first time since the 2007/08 season. By the end of the season, the Hawks were ranked 29th in the power play out of the 31 teams in the league.

The team is built around captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, which have both been on the team since 2007. Since then they have won the Stanley Cup three times and have accumulated over 1000 points together. In the last four years Toews points have been declining which is concerning. He gathered 52 points this past season (2017/18) which haven’t been that low since 2012/13. Even though it is still above average for most NHL players, it was subpar compared to their past years.

Newcomer, 20-year-old rookie, Alex DeBrincat put up 52 points in his debut season with the Blackhawks. DeBrincat recorded his first NHL hat trick against the Anaheim Ducks making him the second youngest Blackhawks player to score a hat trick. Even though his performance excelled some of the players didn’t, causing them to miss the playoffs. Missing the playoffs means the staffing needs to make changes to get their team back into the playoff run.

The defense side of the Chicago Blackhawks needs some help as veteran players Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith’s points have dwindled and their plus minus hasn’t been the best. General manager Stan Bowman might also be trying to bring in a veteran free agent before the season starts in October. How much he will be able to spend depends on how much the salary cap rises, and whether he decides to move a higher-priced player such as Connor Murphy or Artem Anisimov. Murphy,the 25-year-old defenseman has not been able to produce at an effectual level. His salary cap hit ($3.85 mil) is too much for a player who isn’t performing.

If Bowman were to be looking at unrestricted free agents to sign he’d be looking at players such as Mike Green or Calvin de Haan. So far Bowman has signed defencemen Jan Rutta to a one-year contract at $2.3 million and Erik Gustafsson at a 2-year contract for $1.2 Million.

Bringing it back to goaltending. Crafowrd has been with the Blackhawks for over a decade and has been a fantastic goaltender. Last year he went down with an injury and the wheels immediately began to come off for the Hawks. The Blackhawks did attempt to address their goaltending concerns in the summer by signing Carolina Hurricane goaltender Cam Ward to a one year $3 million contract.

As the Blackhawks rebuild begins, they have several Restricted Free Agents (RFA’s) to take care of this summer. Anthony Duclair, John Hayden, Tomas Jurco and Vinnie Hinostroza are all the RFA’s.
