Blackhawks Trade Leaves Me Underwhelmed
I can’t believe people think this move will put the Hawks in a run for the Cup. Please! If I’m wrong I’ll admit it in June, but I think others, and myself, will be proven right by May.The Blackhawks need goal scoring. The problem is consistency and having people that are goal scoring machines. The Hawks don’t have that. They’ll be lucky to have a 40 goal scorer or an 80 point guy-heck even a 70 point guy.
The Hawks have problems scoring when they get into game situations like the playoffs breed. The young playmakers on the Hawks still don’t have enough to break open games on a regular basis.
I’d be the first to admit that great team chemistry and spirit can win anything in hockey-think the Miracle on Ice.
But I don’t think this team will be able to get past the second round with the roster they have. They need some serious goal scoring, a REAL first line goal scorer. This trade didn’t get them there.
If the even get to the finals this year-indeed, it will be a miracle.
