NHL Insider Suggests Blackhawks Pick Up Three Massive Stars

Published January 8, 2024 at 1:29 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks season was already going downhill, but now they're icing a very understrength team with the majority of their roster on Injured Reserve, but one insider has a solution.

Blackhawks insider has crazy suggestion

With Connor Bedard, Nick Foligno and many others on IR right now, the Blackhawks have one of the worst rosters the NHL has seen in recent years, and it could force them to make a drastic change.

Now, Blackhawks insider Mark Lazerus has jokingly suggested the Blackhawks should target these three big time stars to sell tickets for the rest of the way.

OK, hear me out. Kyle Davidson's next three calls should be to:
1. Phil Kessel
2. Jonathan Toews.
3. Jaromir Jagr

Sell them tickets, baby.

What's the solution in Chicago?

While Kessel could potentially come to Chicago as it would give him the chance to play heavy minutes, a chance he won't get elsewhere at this point in his career, but obviously the other two are very unrealistic.

With top star Connor Bedard thriving, even in this tough environment, he's already proved he can be a superstar at the NHL level, but with a roster like this, it's going to take several years of drafting and finding free agents until they can become legitimate contenders.
