The Chicago Blackhawks have a lot of players that could play in the top six, and it is really important that you get the right group of players on the ice to start the game.

Today, I thought it might be fun to let you all decide the starting lineup for the Blackhawks. You have 10 dollars to get your top group on the ice, now I know that a starting lineup is not going to win or lose you a game, but at the same time, it is going to set the tone for the entire game.

Think of some of the past starting lineups in games like the Stanley Cup Finals. Knowing that Jonathan Toews was going out to start the game and try to get the team the puck to start the game was a big boost before puck drop. It is really important to get the first goal, but it is just as important to have the best first shift.

Maybe you are going to choose to go with a really big and heavy lineup with players like Dach, Shaw, and Saad, or maybe you will choose to go with a more speedy lineup with Kane, and Strome. You are the head coach now. So take a look at how much each player is priced and comment down below what your starting lineup would look like!

5 Dollars – Patrick Kane

4 Dollars – Jonathan Toews, Dominik Kubalik

3 Dollars – Brandon Saad, Alex DeBrincat, Dylan Strome

2 Dollars – Andrew Shaw, David Kampf, Kirby Dach

1 Dollars – Drake Caggiula, Ryan Carpenter, Zack Smith, Alex Nylander

Now, for my starting lineup, I would have Alex DeBrincat, Kirby Dach, and Patrick Kane to get the game started. I think that we could potentially see a line like this next season, and it would be pretty exciting!

Another lineup option I would go with is Jonathan Toews, Dominik Kubalik, and Kirby Dach again. Kirby Dach at 2 dollars is honestly a nice steal, and I think a lot of the comments are going to include Dach in their lineup. Comment down below if you agree with my lineup, or share your own idea on what you think it should be.
