3. Winning is not a guarantee

Even though the Hawks built up this great roster, the games still need to be played. I do not think anyone expected the Blackhawks to go winless in October yet here we are. No game can be taken for granted for the Blackhawks after the month they just had.

While it might seem like an overaction those first ten games might be the doom of the Blackhawks before the rest of the season is even played, as those couple of points could come back to haunt them at the end of the season.

4. Maybe Toews and Kane will be out of here sooner rather than later

With how the Blackhawks have been playing, and the recent changes around the league with regards to members of management from the 2010 Blackhawks team, maybe the Blackhawks will move on from Kane and Toews sooner rather than later.

The players are under contract through the end of next season, and up until this point, I always assumed they would bring back their two faces of the franchise. But as the team tries to redirect this team maybe they will look to trade those top guys for assets or youth now if the season continues to go in a bad direction.
