Chicago Blackhawks: Meet the 2011-2012 Roster

The Chicago Blackhawks are just 16 months removed from winning the Stanley Cup.

Over those months, fans have seen a lot of favorites and familiar faces depart, while some younger and cheaper guys came in to replace them.

Last offseason, we saw a lot of that, while this offseason, we saw some guys leave but some proven guys were added to step into their place. Most importantly, the salary cap hell is over. General manager Stan Bowman has locked up the core and some other pieces as well.

During the summer, both Michael Frolik and Corey Crawford received new three year deals, while Patrick Sharp got a five-year extension that may allow him to retire as a Blackhawk.

Coach Quenneville has 15 of the guys who were on the ice for Game 7 against Vancouver last season, while nine of them remember what it was like to hoist that cup, and trust me, they are ready to do it again.
