Part 2 of our preview of the Chicago Blackhawks looks at their projected roster as well as their current salary cap situation:
The Blackhawks have a deep and diverse forward group, and you can pretty much mix and match the top 6 into any combination on any given day, and if that isn’t working you have Versteeg or Bickell to move up depending on the situation. It is an embarassment of riches and I will be most interested to see how Brad Richards is used and how he fits in after his up and down New York experience. The top end guys are locked in long term, and the 14 forwards listed carry a cap hit of a shade under $40M.
