In this article, we are going to play out a scenario. There is a minute left in game seven Stanley Cup playoffs in the offensive zone and you get to choose six Chicago Blackhawks throughout the entirety of the franchise.

There certainly was no shortage of players to choose from at the forward and defensive positions. I am sure many of you will come up with some different combinations, so make sure to comment on who you’re throwing over the boards.

In this situation, I am going with four forwards and two defensemen just because I believe the Chicago Blackhawks have enough quality defensemen that they are as good as forwards.

I was tempted to add a fifth forward however, there was too many good Blackhawk defenseman to only choose one. I also felt that adding two defensemen with great shots, vision, and awareness would bolster offensive efficiency.

So, let’s go out there and tie the game with a minute left. Here are my six skaters.
