Blackhawks Daily: Free Agent Frenzy Hits Chicago



Did Kyle Davidson ever live up to his word. A day later, the Blackhawks added seven new faces and a whole lot of other questions as to what’s next in Chicago.

That leads to three thoughts about what Davidson and the Blackhawks did and what could be next as free agency hits–day two. Between a roster glut or maybe a planned strategy to ease prospects paths to Chicago instead of rushing it.

But for as much as the Hawks did, the Central Division got stronger, too. Nashville went nuts, signing Steven Stamkos and Jonathan Marchesseault. As per usual, the league saw names shift.

So today’s Daily is a look at what happened–because there’s a heck of a lot to catch up on.
