Welcome back for another edition of the Chicago Blackhawks roundtable, with your friends at Blackhawk Up

Last week, we took a look at Chicago Blackhawks surprises and disappointments through the early portion of the season. Ahead of this week’s roundtable, there’s little to be disappointed about.

The Blackhawks have reeled off six straight victories, the latest two coming in a home-and-home sweep of the Dallas Stars that was completed Sunday. Concerns from the season’s first week seem to have evaporated.

It’s not like the Blackhawks can keep up this run forever (or can they?), but every point is important in a Central Division that’s likely to find its footing sooner rather than later.

Speaking of which, our first roundtable question this week happens to be focused on the Central Division. Let’s get into some Q&A with the Blackhawk Up team.
