Chicago Blackhawks 2009-2010 Outlook
The Chicago Blackhawks have extremely high hopes for the 2009-2010 NHL season. The Blackhawks organization and the City of Chicago are still riding high after the Blackhawks advanced all the way to the Western Conference Finals against their hated rivals - the Detroit Red Wings. Although the Blackhawks fell short of their ultimate goal - their 1st Stanley Cup title since the 1960-1961 NHL season - the Blackhawks are full confident that they have all the pieces in place to make that dream a reality in 2010. Although it was a controversial move at the time, ever since the Blackhawks replaced beloved, young head coach Dennis Savard with the experienced, veteran head coach Joel Quenneville, the Blackhawks have been on a mission as they have avoided any long spells of inconsistent play that plagued them under Savard's tenure. Quenneville seems to have earned the respect of all his players and the team is poised to bring a Stanley Cup title back to Chicago very very soon.
The team is built to win for the next several years - a good young nucleus is allowed to run free with plenty of veteran leaders keeping everyone in check through the long NHL season. The Blackhawks have inked 3 young, superstars - Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith - to long-term deals that will likely keep the players in Blackhawks' uniforms for the rest of their careers. Free agent signee Marian Hossa, Center Patrick Sharp and wingers Kris Versteeg, Troy Brouwer and Dustin Byfuglien will also be productive offensive threats for the Blackhawks. Keith pairs up with Brent Seabrook to form one of the best defensive units in the league. Brian Campbell, Cam Barker and Brent Sopel are also good defenders who can create scoring chances for the front lines on a regular basis. Cristobal Huet will man the net for the Blackhawks replacing Nikolai Khabibulin who became a free agent. But look for homegrown goalie Annti Niemi to also see a lot of games in front of the net to keep Huet fresh for the entire season. If the teams stays healthy and if Quenneville can keep the team focused on a consistent basis, there's no reason to think we won't see the Blackhawks again in the Western Conference Finals. Then the only question will be whether or not they have what it takes to win 8 more games after that to attain the ultimate goal - a Stanley Cup Trophy. Get your Blackhawks hockey tickets at the United Center before it's too late.

The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the Original Six teams in the NHL – along with the New York Rangers, the Boston Bruins, the Montreal Canadiens, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings.
