Here are seven reasons to watch the Chicago Blackhawks

Published August 2, 2021 at 11:08

The Chicago Blackhawks aren't what they once were between the years of 2010 and 2015, when this team lifted three Stanley Cups between those years. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are still there, but Joel Quenneville, Patrick Sharp, Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith are no longer there and are either retired or elsewhere in the NHL.

Jeremy Colliton, a 36-year-old head coach who played 57 games in the NHL, has taken over the reins of the team and after a rocky start, the young man is doing well. The players have rallied behind him and Stan Bowman has given him the elements to get back to the standards of 2010 and beyond. The desire of the organization is to enter the playoffs and hurt. Nothing less!

The last season, despite an absence from the playoffs, has gone well, giving hope to this group, which was composed without its captain, Jonathan Toews. In short, all of this leads me to the seven important reasons why we can believe in this franchise winning again.

1. Jonathan Toews will be back.
2. Marc-André Fleury will be in net.
3. Seth Jones will be the quarterback.
4. Jake McCabe and Connor Murphy will form the "shutdown" pair.
5. Tyler Johnson will be the team's third center.
6. Kirby Dach is/will be healthy.
7. Patrick Kane is still Patrick Kane.

These are the spices that will make Illinois' recipe very tasty, which could propel the Hawks near the top of their division and sneak into the final event, the Stanley Cup Final. We're talking here...
