Blackhawks

The Hawks 3rd and 4th lines are not their problem. Johansen's line is eating the Toews lines lunch and Keith and Hjalmarsson are getting chewed up as well.

Crawford has been comical at times.

 

In this series I agree, I was making a larger point about their chances in general this year.  They just have nothing after their first two lines.

 

And if those lines are getting whooped like they are by Nashville - they're toast.  I'd give us an infinitely better chance of rallying from 3-0 than them.

Probably, but neither is happening.

Yup, the cap has finally caught up to them, and they have too many young players playing important spots. Ultimately though I wouldn't count the Hawks out for long, I could see them turning it back around next year with a smart trade or two and just the general development of some of the youngsters.

Also, this is what happens when the youngsters you have now are being drafted in the super late parts of the first round rather than the early parts (cough *kane cough *kane)

They have been amazingly resourceful over the years, I wouldn't count them out, but age and depth are now both starting to wear on them.  (Plus all those extra postseason games)  We may be seeing the beginning of the end of their run.

Yep, I'd never count them out as long as they have Kane, Toews, Seabrook, and Keith. They've had to trade away several young players that were due to make big money over the last 2-3 years... Like you said, if they made a smart trade instead of salary dump type trades, they'll be cup contenders again.
