The 2015-16 season is one of uncertainty for the Chicago Blackhawks. The harsh realities of the salary-cap era were quite evident during the offseason.

Furthermore, the likes of Brad Richards, Johnny Oduya and Antoine Vermette have found new teams through the free agency market. In other words, this year’s Blackhawks squad will look different than the 2015 Stanley Cup Champions we saw in June.

Meanwhile, Calgary’s crease is loaded, but Jon Gillies is making sure he’s not forgotten, and another former prospect goaltender has a little fun with what’s left of his offseason in a remake of a cult-classic film.
