The Blackhawks can recover

As mentioned before, while Bowman has been rather lax with his defensive talent, he’s made sure his farm system is replete with talented offensive prospects.

If this past year’s debuts of Ryan Hartman and Nick Schmaltz, among others, are any indication of what Bowman has incubating in Rockford, then there’s a good chance Panarin might not be quite as missed as we think should he be moved out of Chicago.

Panarin would certainly be a loss, but this damage would be minimal as long the Blackhawks’ youth can stand and deliver the way they did this past season. There’s a reason there are already whispers of Alex DeBrincat making his NHL debut this upcoming year.
