Nobody is crowning them or anything like that but there is no doubt that they will at least be fun to watch. There is a lot of talent there just waiting to try and nail down a playoff spot in the Central Division.
They are going to be getting things going pretty soon here which is exciting. There is always a chance that they try to better their team even more between now and training camp. There are still, despite it being late in the offseason, a lot of really good players out there looking for a home. The Blackhawks might still do what they can to improve their chances.
They still may or make not make a big trade as well. There is a lot of room for that kind of stuff before training camps open. It is going to be interesting to see what teams around the league do with these guys who are still out there. The Hawks would be smart to go for anyone that can help their team.
