Chicago Blackhawks Roundtable: Surprises And Defensive Lineups

1 of 4

This week’s Chicago Blackhawks roundtable focuses partly on guys who have surprised early this season

The Chicago Blackhawks are through six games this season, and things are going better than some would have expected. Record-wise, that’s the case anyway. Not everything is perfect despite Chicago’s 4-1-1 record, but it’s far better than having a team with no wins.

So maybe it could be considered a surprise the Blackhawks have gotten off to the start they have. But what about individual athletes on the surprise scale?

There will always be guys who are off to a surprisingly good start in any given Blackhawks season, and this one is no exception. So today, we asked the Blackhawk Up team which Blackhawk they thought was having the most surprisingly successful start to the 2017-18 season.

Here are this week’s two Blackhawks roundtable questions:

Question 1: Who has been your most surprising Chicago Blackhawk this season and why?

Question 2: Who would make your starting six defensemen for the Blackhawks and why?

Let’s see what our esteemed group of experts came up with this week.
