Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Happy Labor Day

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans.  It’s the traditional last day of summer which means that Chicago Blackhawks are closing in on their next training camp at Notre Dame.

We have been looking at some questions that will be asked at Training camp besides the obvious one which is whether or not Patrick Kane will be present in South Bend.  Last night I asked that question, and far away the biggest question is about the Chicago Blackhawks defense.

The Blackhawks lost one of their four defensive rocks when Johnny Oduya left the franchise to sign with Patrick Sharp in Dallas.  So of course people are weary of what Trevor Daly will bring to the team and who will be on the bottom pairing with Trevor van Riemsdyk.  The defense will be a worry most of the year, but the good thing is there still is three very good defenseman on the roster in the names of Duncan Keith, Niklas Hjalmarsson, and Brent Seabrook.

One thing that isn’t a concern is today being the last great cookout holiday of the summer, and here are some morning links to kick off your Labor Day holiday.
