When will the Chicago Blackhawks win their next Stanley Cup

Until they can regain some semblance of balance in their salary cap and they can find a goaltender who isn’t constantly broken, the Hawks have little chance for a serious Cup run.As a Chicago fan it has been heartbreaking to lose players like Hjarmalson, Panarin, Leddy, and Teuravainin.The salary cap has no mercy and the massive contracts the Blackhawks signed for a few players acts as a handicap for any trade interest.

Chicago has too many holes to fill adequately until their structure can be resolved.At least Hossa’s issue has been somewhat resolved and that helps make some cap space, but Chicago has painted itself into a corner with the salaries of 5 players when currently successful teams have 4 lines of potential offense and at least 3 quality defenseman, not too mention a strong starting goalie backed up by a capable one.
