Lynch – You mention the key to the Blackhawks beating the Oilers in your last sentence Ryan.

Shutting down McDavid is not going to be easy. People have been mentioning Patrick Kane as a player who can single-handedly win a best of five series, but in my opinion, McDavid is a bigger threat.

This was from 2017, but take a look as McDavid skates right through Duncan Keith and gives Patrick Maroon an easy pass to score on the Blackhawks.

Unless something changes on our blue line this could be happening a lot when these two teams faceoff. How do you think the Blackhawks are going to be able to shut down McDavid and Draisaitl? Are we going to be seeing some new defensive pairings?
