Three of these guys started the season red hot and have cooled off, while one guy might be proving last year was a fluke.
Looking at his numbers in October, there would have been no doubt that Crawford would easily surpass the 33 wins he had last season.
But now with only 36 games left, I wonder if he has another 16 wins in him just to equal last season.
His save percentage is down and his goals allowed are up. The Blackhawks need to see the goalie that helped get them into the playoffs and had a great series against Vancouver last season, and less of the guy who played in November and December this season.
What is wrong with Patrick Kane? Like I said before, he started the season on fire, playing center and skating with Hossa.
However, now he looks confused on the ice and has struggled since returning to the wing.
While his 29 assists are second on the team, his 10 goals rank sixth.
Like Kane and Crawford, Leddy started off the season great.
Many came into the season wondering if he hit a wall last year, but he proved to everyone he was up to the task.
Until about a month ago that is when he started to struggle.
I went into a lot of detail about a week ago about Leddy struggling, but the key to the Hawks power play may rest on the shoulders of the Hawks youngest player here.
I have been told that I expect way too much out of Brent Seabrook.
Seabrook signed to a very nice five-year contract extension last season while he was having a career year.
He had a career high 48 points and he set a new high with 39 assists and tied his goal mark of nine. What a difference a year makes.
Seabrook currently has 15 points with three goals and 12 assists, and will be lucky to reach the 30-point mark.
While he continues to be part of the best defensive duo in the league, the Hawks need him to be more like the guy we saw last season on the other end of the ice.
