Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!

So this is the week of the summer we have been waiting for since it was announced that Jimmy Vesey would become a free agent in August, and for Chicago Blackhawks fans it was even more important since it’s believed that the Hawks are one of the favorites to land the talented winger.

The reason the Chicago Blackhawks could be such a great fit for Vesey is because they have a huge need for some Top 6 talent, and Vesey is believed to be that kind of talent.

If you look at the potential lines for the upcoming season, there are tons of question marks and plenty of jobs on the line for the Chicago Blackhawks that have been prospects for some time now, and for new additions like Nick Schmaltz and Tyler Motte.

That being said most scouts believe that Vesey could step in and be able to play top 6 minutes for almost every team around the NHL.  The Hawks now according to some line variations have Richard Panik on the top line which is crazier than having Andrew Shaw on the top line which many fans complained about for years when Joel Quenneville would put #65 on the top line..

The Hawks are believed to be on the top of the list with the New Jersey Devils on their heels, but if the Chicago Blackhawks want to win the Cup this year they need more offensive talent to go with their rebuilt defensive corps.
