I am very excited to see what Max Domi can bring to the table for the Blackhawks. He seems pumped to be joining the Hawks, because once the team named Luke Richardson head coach, he made sure he could join the team. At 27 years old, Domi has 501 games under his belt with 314 points to show for it. Domi has quietly been a really strong player throughout his entire career, but has yet to find the correct fit.
I've always been a huge fan of Domi. He's a work horse, a physical player and a guy that will be able to put up some points in the middle six of any lineup. He did it with Montreal, Columbus and Carolina when he spent time with each team, and I would expect nothing less. In 72 games split between the Canes and Jackets last season, Domi put up 11 goals and 28 assists for 39 points.
Now, Domi isn't going to be your first overall selection for fantasy this season. But, if he's an option in the later rounds, I'm snagging him. He's motivated to prove he is more than just someone who bounces around teams because he can't play well with teammates or whatever the case may be, and he wants to be in Chicago, something a few other Blackhawks players can't say right now.
These two guys are gonna be huge parts of a really bad team this season. Wouldn't at all surprise me if they both had career years.
