1. NO CHEMISTRY
This one is on Quenneville. One has to wonder if Richards is off to a slow start because he took less money to come to Chicago to play with Patrick Kane and he’s stuck playing with Bickell and Kris Versteeg’s of the roster.
Every game the lines are changed as if this is still preseason and he’s searching for the right combinations. The highest scoring line in the league is That 70’s line in LA and do you know one of the reason they are the highest scoring line? They have played together every shift for over a year now and there is something about that chemistry three linemates build up together. Whatever lines Quenneville wants to put together he needs to stick to them for a week or two through thick and thin and let them build up that chemistry. You see it with Kruger and Smith and Toews and Hossa let all 12 forwards build that chemistry.

Roll four lines and let the offense find itself. Kane and Saad should be together for 10 seasons and yet it took 3 games for them to be broken up. Hopefully with the games coming every other night the Hawks will build that chemistry if Q let’s them!
What do you think is hurting the Blackhawks offense the most?
