25. Chicago Blackhawks

Previous: No. 15

The Blackhawks are 4-6-0 in their last 10 games and are on the biggest downslide in the NHL currently. While Corey Crawford continues to keep the team relevant and competitive in most games, the offense has rarely produced outside the last game (which was still a loss).

If the team is unable to improve its powerplay and offense, it will be playing from behind and struggling to tally wins all year.
