While we know that the Chicago Blackhawks are going to return and play again this year, there are still some big question marks for next season’s roster.
We do not know how this team is going to look in a year, and that is pretty scary to me. While a lot of players are under contract there are some notable players missing, and then some players that will be on expiring contracts.
I bet Stan Bowman and the Blackhawks management are going to take this little postseason trip as a testing point to see what this team is really missing and what they can add to fix their roster.
If the Blackhawks win against Edmonton then their low draft pick is not going to end up being theirs anymore. We would be looking at a middle pick instead of a top ten pick, and while that is not the end of the world it could drastically change the quality of a player that Chicago brings into the organization through the draft. Just something to think about while you read the three questions we need to be answered for next season.
