Short of going undefeated, Chicago Blackhawks had a memorable season in 2013. The hawks were dominant and will have the obvious delight of erecting a well earned Stanley Cup banner by October. However, even before they are done celebrating a fifth championship, the attention will turn to the chase for a sixth one.
The Blackhawks glided their way to the Presidents’ trophy through a display of offensive and defensive play in 2013, a shortened season. After claiming points in the first season’s 24 games, it was not a surprise to anyone that they would end the season in a celebratory mood. Most of the Hawks core has been returning and they have a real shot at winning the title again since the exploit pulled off by Detroit Red Wings in 1998.
The last Chicago Blackhawks repeat was not successful, mostly alluded to a cap on salary that led to a talent fire sale. In 2010, the club parted ways with core players such as Antti Niemi, Andrew Ladd, Kris Versteeg and Dustin Byfuglien. While the current Hawk’s team has not lost that much talent, there will definitely be some changes.
Chicago will be opening the 2013/2014 season without the goal scorer who helped them clinch the cup, Dave Bolland, who has since moved to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The same day saw Michael Frolick moving to Winnipeg.
Since the Chicago Blackhawks have to replace the departing players, they are expected to turn to their talented youths. Teuvo Tervainen is expected to make his debut in the NHL, a youthful 18 year old from Finland and a blistering scorer who could make the Hawks even more successful and dominant.
The roster still suggest the Blackhawks will be a juggernaut in the 2013/2014 season while the move by Detroit Red Wings to the Eastern Conference is expected to make their cruise to another triumphant year a success.
Unless hard partying in the summer leaves the Chicago Blackhawks with a searing hangover, they are still considered the favorites capable of taking home the Stanley Cup and Presidents’ Trophy.
