Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Odds: +10000

What precisely are the Chicago Blackhawks doing here?

Sure, they wish to enter into a reconstruct — that makes good sense provided the battles en masse they’ve had the last couple of years. But rather of going from the top down, they apparently have actually gone from the bottom up.

Instead of making people like Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane a few of the gamers they’ve shipped, they made relocate to trade both Alex DeBrincat and Kirby Dach 2 of their young and up-and-coming forwards.

In the DeBrincat trade, they apparently offered low just getting a very first and second-round choice in this previous years draft, and a 3rd round choice in 2024. They went off the board a bit with that seventh total choice this year taking defenceman Kevin Korchinski, a person they stated they longed for.

Then in Dach’s case, they delivered him to Montreal in exchange for the 13th total choice and a 3rd round choice, 66th total. That’s it for either of these people? I’m surprised, to state the least.

Chicago likewise generated Petr Mrazek and another first-round choice later on in the preliminary in exchange for a second-round choice. Mrazek ought to assist in their efforts to tank this year, however who understands! Maybe he can be found in and plays excellent hockey.

You can perhaps provide some credit for generating people like Max Domi and Andreas Athanasiou on 1 year offers, however just if they have the ability to trade them for properties at the due date.

This was an odd offseason for first-year GM Kyle Davidson and co.

Are we banking on the Blackhawks to win the cup? No possibility. They’ve made their group worse this offseason and are going to be well out of the playoff photo.
