The Goalie Position

There is absolutely no reason the Blackhawks would draft a goalie with their pick in the draft. Now if the team did have a second-round pick I would think that maybe that could go to the goalie position, but the team gave away their pick when they brought Andrew Shaw back this offseason.

Adding a goalie just would not make sense. Either Corey Crawford or Robin Lehner will be back next season, and they have some good goalies in their system. Collin Delia didn’t have the best start of the season, but he did turn things around as of late. He would be a good backup in my opinion.

Chicago is not going to draft a goalie with their top pick, but they might be able to add a difference-maker in front of the goalie in the form of a defenseman.
