With all the changes the Chicago Blackhawks have made, they look like a brand new team.  They definitely look different, that’s for sure.  It’s time to take a look at the gains, as well as the losses.

Good day to you, boys and girls!  Time certainly has gotten away from me.  I haven’t posted in a while, but remodeling your house can do that to you.  Since the last time I sat down at my computer, all hell has broken loose!  Yep, a lot’s been going on.  It’s certainly time to assess the damages, as well as the gains.

There have been so many changes over the last few days!  One can certainly say his doesn’t feel like the same team anymore.  The only players who remain from the 2015 Stanley Cup team are Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Corey Crawford.

Well, I guess you could count Marcus Kruger, Andrew Desjardins, Michal Rozsival and Johnny Oduya.  But will any of these guys really be with the team in October?  It’s still rumored Kruger is on his way out via trade, and it’s unclear whether the other three will be re-signed (Rozy is signed on for next season, but could be traded now that the expansion draft is over).

Let’s take a closer look at all the changes.
