Careful about falling for the Chicago trap. They rose to power on the backs of a young core BUT the difference between them and us is Toews, Kane, Keith, & Seabrook, followed by excellent secondary scoring that has been mostly traded away. They drafted:
1) Top pair of franchise players and they clicked immediately.
2) Top defensive pair with one franchise player & they clicked as well.

We have one 1st line franchise player and Hamonic followed by kids that represent depth. That is always going to fail.
