Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks bye week only has one more day left in it, and after thinking about I’m not sure what the point of the bye week is after all.
The point of the bye week is to give players some rest during the regular season, but if you look at the condensed schedule, or even look at the schedule around the bye week, the schedule doesn’t make much sense to me.
Before the bye week, the Chicago Blackhawks played back to back games which did include two wins with the win over the Edmonton Oilers being one of their most dominant win in weeks.
When the Hawks come off of their bye week tomorrow night they will again have to play back to back games, and they will also be playing 3 games in 4 nights.
Granted as a fan of watching the Chicago Blackhawks, I will enjoy watching them play all weekend long, but I don’t understand why they are playing so many games so close together if the NHL is worried about player safety or just giving them a break.

I would think an uncondensed schedule with less back to back games would make for a better quality product on the ice, and be better for the players rest and practice time for the coaches, but who am I just a fan of the Blackhawks. What are your thoughts on the bye week and the condensed schedule?
