The Chicago Blackhawks could look to free agency for a goaltender.

The Chicago Blackhawks are not bringing back Corey Crawford, according to general manager Stan Bowman. They aren’t being clear about whether or not they are rebuilding or not so that makes it tough to predict what they are going to do. They say they are trying to win but then let Corey Crawford go so it just all makes no sense because he is the number one reason that they had a chance to win games.

They didn’t agree to terms with Robin Lehner before the trade deadline so they moved him to the Vegas Golden Knights. He went there and continued to be awesome so they wanted to extend him themselves. He signed a very team-friendly deal to stay there so it doesn’t look great for the Blackhawks. Now, they don’t have much ready to go at the NHL level for the next few seasons.

They drafted Drew Commesso with the 46th overall pick of the 2020 NHL Draft a couple of days ago and he might be in the future plans but he is a long way away. He is going to attend Boston University so you know he will have good development there.

We can be excited about what Commesso might bring one day but they are lost right now. They have Malcolm Subban, Collin Delia, and Kevin Lankinen that can make starts next season but none of them feel like guys who will get the job done. If they start, they might as well truly start to rebuild. If they want to keep trying to win (you never know with Stan), they might look to add one of these free agent goalies:
