The Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers are headed in two mildly different directions. Could the Blueshirts fend off the distraction of trying to trade away their captain while in the middle of the hunt for a postseason berth? Sure. Could the Blueshirts also deal with trading away one of their top defenders in Dan Girardi just before the playoff push gets underway? Why not.
Will Henrik Lundqvist be able to continue the high level of play he showed while he was wearing Sweden’s yellow sweater over in Sochi without any sort of letdown? Why not?
It’s not a certainly that New York won’t be one of the final teams standings once the postseason starts, but this just hasn’t been their year so far. Meanwhile, Chicago has been very Chicago-ish. They’re tied for the top spot in the Central Division, and there’s little reason to believe they won’t finish the season among the top seeds in the NHL.
