The Chicago Blackhawks roster is not the same as it was to start the year. The poor start combined with the changes in the front office means the team is in a completely new position. Now interim general manager Kyle Davidson takes over the team and might have to make some changes.
With the Blackhawks finally getting their first win of the season on Monday night against the Ottawa Senators, at least they finally have a win under their belt, but they need to be better. If the Hawks continue to lose this month and go under 500 then some changes could be coming.
Anyone should be on the table for a trade, but I do think there are a few players that should be held off the board. Today let’s look at three untouchables on the Blackhawks roster.
While there are a lot of players on this team that the Blackhawks probably won’t be able to trade if they tried, that is not what I am looking at today. Today it is the next core group of players this team is going to build around.
While guys like Hagel or Murphy are probably a part of that next group, they are not going to be on this list because with the direction of this team desperation is going to sync in which means the team might make some more moves.
Today it is just the top three players the Blackhawks are going to build around – their new Toews, Kane, and Keith if you will. Let’s jump in with the future star centerman for this team.
