Slow Start for the Young 'Hawks

Michael WagnerSenior Analyst IOctober 15, 2008

The Chicago Blackhawks have started out 0-2-1 this season and have not been unable to score more than two goals in any of their first 3 games. Early the Hawks young forwards have not been able to put the puck into the net, showing how the lack of a veteran in the top 6 has hurt them.

The 'Hawks only have 1 player over 30 that isn't a goalie, this might mean Dale Tallon might be looking to add another player to his top six (A veteran). This team is young but they also need a some sort of veteran in the forward lines to rally the young guys.

I am one that thinks that the Blackhawks don't need to make a move right now but if the offensive production does not pick up Tallon might need to add another scoring option. The other problem the 'Hawks face is that they are unable to gain any consistancy with the constant line juggling and the lack of an offensive system. 
I love Denis Savard and what he did for the team last year but it is important that this team gets some sort of consistancy from its players and more importantly their coach.
We will see how this all plays out and if the 'Hawks are really on the right track for the playoffs.
