2014 - 2015 Chicago Black Hawks Report posted by Hawks Fan

The Chicago blackhawks are one of the best teams, even in the competitive Western Conference. They have very good players who have shown their capabilities in the 2013-2014 season. The pairing of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane is one of the team’s greatest strength.

Great Defense

The defense has very capable defensemen. Duncan Keith won the Norris Trophy and despite being in a very talented team, his skills still stood out. Niklas Hjalmarsson is a great defenseman and arguably as good as Keith if not better. The pairing of Nicklas Hjalmarsson and Johnny Oduya also strengthens the defense.

Goal tender Corey Crawford who was signed back in the 2014-2015 season, has not been performing to expectations. His save percentage fell consistently after he had given an excellent performance in the preseason. This is after he was signed back for $36million, after showing a great performance with a high save percentage in the 2013 season.

Fixing the Center

Another problem the black hawks are facing is fixing the center. Michal Handzus left the Blackhawks and is currently a free agent. Zeus was great during most of the season but did not play as expected in the playoffs and seemed overwhelmed.

Center man Brad Richards is expected to replace Michal Handzus. A lot is expected from veteran Brad Richards. However, some skeptics feel at 34 he may not be at his best. There are other prospects who could take Brad Richard’s place, in case he fails to fill that gap. One of the prospects is Teuvo Teravainen.

His considerably lower salary could have him as the number one choice for the blackhawks who have a salary cap limit they need to deal with this season. The team still has great talent who can keep up with the western conference. There is no reason why the blackhawks cannot overcome these challenges.

Do the Blackhawks Actually Have a Chance? posted by Jeff Ponder

Remember that Flyers – Bruins series last post-season?  The Blackhawks have it fresh in their memories.

After being down in the series 3-0, the eighth-seeded Chicago Blackhawks have made the series very interesting, winning the last two games in convincing fashion.  After winning game four 7-2, the Blackhawks flew into Vancouver and stole game five, 5-0.  Not only are the Blackhawks staving off elimination, they are chasing Vezina trophy-finalist Roberto Luongo from between the pipes.

After giving up six goals on 28 shots in game four, Luongo was pulled from his net and was replaced by backup Cory Schneider.  Luongo was even more dreadful in game five, letting in four goals on 12 shots, resulting in being taken out of the game yet again.  Luongo’s GAA in these two games is well above 5.00 and his overall GAA has skyrocketed from 1.67 after the first three games to 3.67 overall. 

So the question remains; can the Blackhawks continue this offensive onslaught and steal the next two games away from Vancouver?

Anything is possible in today’s NHL.  In addition to the memorable Flyers – Bruins series are the many upsets that have ensued since the lockout.  From Edmonton’s amazing Stanley Cup Final run in 2006 to Montreal’s miracle ride to the Conference Finals last season, history is showing that the Blackhawks cannot yet be counted out of this series.

Let’s not forget Blackhawk history, either.  The Hawks have won the past two series with the Canucks; don’t think that Luongo doesn’t remember that.

Blackhawks sign Marian Hossa to 12-Year, $62.4 Million Contract posted by Jeff Ponder

Goodbye Martin Havlat, hello Marian Hossa.

The Blackhawks have made it two years running with big off-season acquisitions now.  Last year the Hawks grabbed defenseman Brian Campbell and goaltender Cristobal Huet, and now the team has brought in possibly the biggest name in the free-agent market with Marian Hossa. 

Marian has lost in the Stanley Cup finals for the past two years, maybe making this signing tainted.  But Hossa adds speed and craftiness to an already skilled Blackhawk lineup.  Hossa had 40 goals for the rival Red Wings last season, along with 71 points.  His 10 power-play goals are something to behold, along with the 8 game-winning goals he added.

This is a good deal for the Hawks, but the better deal may have been to bring Martin Havlat back.  Havlat would probably want a shorter contract and may have even asked for less money.  He played great for Chicago all season in 2008-09, but his injury problems in the past was probably what made Hawks GM Dale Tallon decide to take Hossa.Continue reading "Blackhawks sign Marian Hossa to 12-Year, ..."
