Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Betting

As bad as things were for the Chicago Blackhawks last year, you ain’t seen anything yet. Chicago is primed to tank the 2022-23 season to have a shot at winning the draft lottery. Connor Bedard is the most coveted prospect in several years, and the Blackhawks want him. The only way to get him is to lose and lose often. When Chicago sent its leading goal scorer, Alex DeBrincat, to the Ottawa Senators, it was the ultimate white flag. Now comes the question of the status of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Kane and Toews are the dynamic duo from the dynasty years and are not likely to want to play for a tanking team. Plus, Kane and Toews might help Chicago win a few more games than they would without them.

Last year the Chicago Blackhawks finished with a record of 28-42-12 to finish 7th in the Central Division. The Blackhawks ranked 29th for goal scoring, 21st for power play efficiency, 26th for goals allowed, and 24th for penalty killing.

General manager Kyle Davidson was an understudy to previous GM Stan Bowman before getting the full time gig last year. Davidson took the job with the understanding that the Blackhawks would initiate a full rebuild.

Head coach Luke Richardson is the unfortunate soul to take over a team that wants to lose. This is Richardson’s first NHL head coaching position. He is a former journeyman NHL defenseman and has been a career assistant since his playing days ended.

Patrick Kane remains the most exciting and popular player on the Blackhawks. Kane is a right wing and alternate captain. He remains a highly productive player at age 33. Last year Kane scored 26 goals with 66 assists. Kane is a 9-time All-Star and won the 2016 Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL's most valuable player. Kane won the 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

Jonathan Toews, age 34, remains the captain. Known as “Captain Serious,” Toews is a 5-time All-Star and 2010 Conn Smythe Trophy winner. However, his production has dropped dramatically in his last two seasons. Last year Toews scored 12 goals in 71 games with 25 assists.

Chicago Blackhawks History

Few sports teams can match the rich history and tradition of the Chicago Blackhawks. Born in 1926 as an “Original Six” franchise, the Blackhawks have six Stanley Cup championships. Owner Rocky Wirtz, head coach Joel Quenneville, and star players such as Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Patrick Kane won Stanley Cup titles in 2010, 2013, and 2015. Ironically the Blackhawks had great teams in the late 1960s and early 1970s but could never finish. Stars such as Hall of Famers Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, and Tony Esposito were on those teams that made four Stanley Cup Final appearances, and eight more semifinal runs from 1962-1974. Sadly, Esposito passed away in August 2021. He remains one of the most beloved athletes in Chicago sports history.

Following the greatest era in the storied history of this Original Six franchise, the Blackhawks have reached a new dark age that resembles the early 2000s when ESPN rated them as the worst franchise in team sports. It all came to a head in the fall of 2021 when the Kyle Beach sexual assault story broke. Beach was assaulted in 2010 by a team employee, and the Blackhawks tried to cover the incident up with the playoffs approaching. Chicago was forced to pay Beach a settlement and clean house.

Once upon a time, John McDonough was rated as the best team president in sports. General manager Stan Bowman and head coach Joel Quenneville were with McDonough for all three Stanley Cup championships. This trio built a team that led the NHL in attendance for over a decade. But because of the Kyle Beach incident, they are out of the NHL, and their former team is a shell of itself.
