The second player the Blackhawks will need to step up is Bryan Bickell. Bickell has been a great playoff performer over the last two years but he has not lived up to his playoff results in the regular season. Bickell has been a regular season DUD. Bickell scored 11 goals and 4 assists during the regular season. While in the playoffs, he had 7 goals and 3 assists in only 19 games. The Blackhawks need Bickell to harness his playoff form during the regular season and become a 25 goal scorer. One of the first things Bickell can do for the Blackhawks is to stay healthy! If he is healthy and engaged during the regular season, Bickell should score 25 goals.
