Not every member of the Chicago Blackhawks was a star last season

Throughout an NHL season, it is impossible to be a team with a bunch of Patrick Kane-type players. Sooner or later, your team is going to run into some trouble with certain guys not doing too well.

The Chicago Blackhawks had these types of players all year in 2015-16, hence why they were quickly eliminated from the postseason by the St. Louis Blues. If the ‘Hawks want to continue their success, they will need these three players to have bounce-back seasons.
