Brandon Saad is the third the player the Blackhawks need to step up next season. Saad racked up 19 goals and 28 assists in his second regular season. During the playoffs, Saad had 6 goals and 10 assists and really blossomed on the Kane/ Andrew Shaw Line. The Blackhawks will need Saad to evolve into the next “Marian Hossa”. That is why the Blackhawks need Saad to rack up 75 points next season. If the Blackhawks get 75 points from Saad, the rest of the NHL will be kneeling before Saad.
