    While were off to a better start this year, look like were moving the puck even better, I still take the 2010 team before this one.
    2010 takes it. Just a much deeper team. That third line of Ladd/Bolland/Versteeg just will not be repeated. In the cap era, it might have been the best third line of all time (and could hold up for quite a while). Toss in just a very solid fourth line of Eager/Fraser (or madden)/Burish. Also, Campbell on defense was a big help.

    Gotta give it to the 2010 team. Love the start but damn was that 2010 team just absolutely loaded due to young guys peeking before their big pay days. Kane, Toews, Keith, Seabrook, Versteeg, Byfuglien, Ladd, Niemi and others all got well deserved raises (for the most part) shortly after that 2010 season. Was just some great timing.

    Also soon to get pretty pricey. Hawks have a lot of money invested in the defense. I can't stress enough how ugly the Oduya contract is, but Bowman seems to value him more than he should. I still believe goaltending exposes itself as the biggest issue on the team at some point this season. In which case Leddy becomes a pretty nice looking trade chip.

    I'm from CT and didn't want to pick any teams around here so I looked around and asked some hockey fans and I like what I see from the Blackhawks.

    So Welcome me, and I'm not going to be the most knowledgeable person right now but hope from watching games, this forum and such I will become a better fan.
    Welcome! You've go to start somewhere.

    If tgey can move Oduya at the deadline, I'd be a happy camper. Hated that signing. Would've loved Methot. Vet d-men will be highly coveted via trade in a couple months. Oduya is too pricey for the third pairing.

    I have to say, I was shocked Brookbank got both games this weekend. Rozival has been much better IMO, I hope he's not hurt.

    Turns out he is. Hurt himself in the Dallas game.

    Where'd you see that? What's the injury? I didn't see anything.

    Oduya is our best +/- Man this far, maybe our best DMan this year...why trade him?

    I disagree, Oduya is a liability imo. He makes careless lazy passes constantly. I'd prefer a physical d-man capable of playing 2nd pairing mins with Hammer. Hammer and Leddy are playing on another level this year. Love that 3rd pairing of Leddy/Rozy btw, perfect complimentary fit together.

    I'm waiting to see the Oduya that played in the regular season last year. He was terrible in the playoffs and has been meh so far. I don't think the contract is terrible but the Blackhawks need to see that player from last regular season if it is going to be an okay contract in the end.

    I do love the depth that the Blackhawks have on defense right now and I certainly would not be actively looking to trading any Dmen at the current time just because that depth has already come in handy in this shortened season. Now, that doesn't mean you don't pull the trigger if the right deal comes along.

    I wouldn't be in a hurry to trade Oduya. I think he's been pretty solid thus far this year. Also, more importantly, he allows Hammer to play his game and keeps Leddy on the 3rd pair, instead of playing 22 mins a game like last year. Oduya isn't great, but I think he's competent and allows the other d men to fit better in their slots.

    The biggest different that the depth allows is the following...

    Keith - 24:22 TOI/G
    Seabrook - 23:24 TOI/G

    Keep Keith and Seabrook fresh and this team can compete in a big way. Having Rozsival/Brookbank as the #6/7 is turning out to be a very solid move. Not trading Hjalmarsson this offseason (when it was rumored he would be) is turning out to be a great depth move and Hammer is looking good so far this offseason.

    Improved defense (along with improved shotblocking to go along) is definitely helping Crawford already.

    Scoring goals wasn't a problem last year...the defense/goaltending were and with the Blackhawks, they go hand and hand with the talent they have. Crawford isn't necessarily going to steal you games, but if the defense can help out to make sure he doesn't lose them for the Blackhawks, they will be in good shape.

    That is the key right there. Oduya's solid play in his own end has allowed Hjalmarsson to worry less about the other side (ie Leddy last year) and focus on his own end.

    Barring an injury or 2, I wouldnt touch the D either. I like Leddy playing on the 3rd pair with time on the PP.
