2. Chicago competes for the wild card spot.
I wish the Blackhawks could be a great team again. Next season back in their old division, I think they will be a real contender to be in a wild card spot when the season ends, however, the only issue is other teams are looking to bounce back big next season as well.
The Blackhawks were out of it a few weeks before the season ended this past year, but next season I think things could go down closer to the wire. Maybe if the team can win a few extra games and or end some games in OT they will be able to sneak into the playoffs.
Next season shouldn’t be a year where the team is in the bottom of the division and in the point total. Instead it will be a season with exciting hockey again and it could hopefully end with a chance at the postseason.
