1. Robin Lehner

Do I need to explain why Robin Lehner is amazing? Honestly, I think everyone knows how much Lehner means to this team, but hey, let’s talk about it anyway. Robin Lehner has been a warrior.

Lehner has single-handedly stolen games for the Chicago Blackhawks and he is constantly talking to the media; trying to help push this team forward.

Robin Lehner holds everyone accountable and I love it. Whether it be the funny offer to let fans give him suggestions to fix his shootout struggles, or his great post-game gifs on Twitter, Lehner has really proven himself.

Lehner has played great behind a defense that has been mediocre at best at times. He has stolen more than a few games this season. It isn’t like Corey Crawford is that much worse, it is just that Lehner has been playing at a different level all season.

I feel bad that New York didn’t give Lehner the long-term contract he deserved last season. Here is to hoping we can get him to sign long-term with the Chicago Blackhawks this summer!
