The Chicago Blackhawks built a great team to win their three championships, however, going from that dominant team to what we have now was not fun. Today I want to look at a few players I wish we had back from our last championship in 2015.
Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2015 the Blackhawks have not had a lot of success in the playoffs. They have won a whopping three games in the playoffs since then, and they have only been to the playoffs twice. The team sure did have a fast decline.
There is not one player who can be blamed for the Blackhawks decline or one player who deserves all of the credit for what the team did. When I do look at our roster now, there are a few holes that I wish we could fill. There were plenty of great players from 2015 with a lot of depth on that roster. Now, the only issue is I am not including anything with the salary cap here, so keep that in mind.
Everyone on the Blackhawk’s last championship had a role to play, and the great play can not be diminished. I would take any one of those players back but I am not talking about the entire team, unfortunately. Let’s jump in and discuss the five players we want back from the 2015 Chicago Blackhawks!
