The Long Defeat: Blackhawks team woes an all-too-familiar feeling

The Long Defeat: Blackhawks team woes an all-too-familiar feeling

Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via The roster is different (and younger) but the results are largely the same. Apologies in advance, because starting off a Friday with this level of pessimism isn’t something I enjoy doing. But I also come to this site to sometimes share opinions with like-minded folks regarding our favorite professional hockey team and this is, regrettably, what I have to offer at the moment. I’m having a hard time distinguishing the 2021 Blackhawks from the ‘18-19 and ‘19-20 versions of the team. Take the “rebuilding” label away for a...

Chicago Blackhawks still have one glaring hole in the lineup

The trade deadline has passed, and for the most part, the Blackhawks did very well. General Manager Stan Bowman navigated the draft and put the team in a good place for next season. No one that left the team will be a significant loss, and the return(s) will likely improve Chicago’s position moving forward. However, […] Chicago Blackhawks still have one glaring hole in the lineup - Blackhawk Up - Blackhawk Up - A Chicago Blackhawks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

If You Are to Bloom: Blackhawks vs Red Wings Preview

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire via The Blackhawks start a two-game series in Detroit on Thursday evening. The Blackhawks start wrapping up their season series against the Red Wings on Thursday night, with the first of two games at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. Chicago has won five of six bouts against Detroit this season, with their most recent meeting on February 28 ending in a commanding 7-2 Blackhawks’ victory. That game, with no shortage of scoring, is perhaps most memorable for Patrick Kane scoring his career goal No. 400 in the win. Since their last...

Young Guns Report: Dach’s return a highlight among Blackhawks’ developing forwards

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ The young forward had an instant impact in his long awaited return to the Blackhawks lineup. The NHL Trade Deadline went exactly as expected: to stock-up on future assets, the Blackhawks moved the veteran forwards on one-year contracts and/or lower-line players without futures in the organization like Mattias Janmark, Carl Soderberg, and Matthew Highmore. Although we don’t see it in this iteration of the series, the forward group should see more changes in playing time and usage in accordance with The Plan™ for the season thanks to these...
