Record Last Season- 36-7-5

The Blackhawks haven’t had any drastic change in there spot in standings. The reigning Stanley Cup Champions have made some changes in their line up however. In June they traded Dave Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Michael Frolik to the Winnipeg Jets and in July they traded Daniel Carcillo to Los Angeles. They also signed Mike Kostka to a one year contract.

I believe what the Hawks were trying to do was keep the team fresh while still holding on to the core that makes them great. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, and all the other talented players the team that helped them win the Stanely Cup stayed in tact. This is why they are still first in the league and will probably stay there for an extended period of time if not the whole season.
