Chicago Blackhawks: Grading Every One of Their Moves This Offseason

What's been a very active offseason for the Chicago Blackhawks is now winding down.

General manager Stan Bowman faced the tough job of addressing a number of concerns facing the Blackhawks, mainly new contracts for Corey Crawford, Michael Frolik and Viktor Stalberg; the need for more character, grit and toughness and glaring weaknesses at the forward position, as well as on defense.

Over the course of the summer, the Hawks have made several moves to complete the minor makeover they needed after being eliminated in the first round against Vancouver. They've made a few trades, signed five unrestricted free agents and completed deals with several of their own restricted free agents.

With training camp still several weeks away, we have plenty of time to reflect back on Chicago's moves this offseason and judge just how well they've done addressing the needs and concerns they had entering the summer.

In this slideshow, I will evaluate and grade every one of the Blackhawks' offseason moves, both major and minor, and see how their summer has been so far.

So without further ado, here are the grades.

Enjoy!
