The Chicago Blackhawks fired head coach Jeremy Colliton but it would be surprising that the team can still turn it around to make the playoffs.
With so many high salary and veteran players on the roster, don't be surprised to see some names shipped out of town.
New general manager Kyle Davidson will have to roll up his sleeves and get some work done between now and the trade deadline.
While we already know that former general manager Stan Bowman was trying everything he could to ship Dylan Strome out of town, it seems there might be two others finding themselves shipped out of Chicago.
According to Scott Powers of The Athletic, Marc-Andre Fleury and Dominik Kubalik are two names likely to be shipped out of town.
The Blackhawks 2022 1st round pick is lottery protected so making sure the team stays near the bottom of the standings would help them keep that pick and retool for 2022-23.
We've already heard some chatter about the Edmonton Oilers targeting Fleury, it would be interesting to see what kind of return the Hawks could get for Kubalik.
Is this is a lost season for the Blackhawks? It’s what interim general manager Kyle Davidson has to determine next in order to pick a path for the future. My column: https://t.co/1oJMQpcqtX
