    Luckily, my league seems as down on him as most, so I can see how things play out.
    Here's a dirty little secret- Crawford's play in 2015-16 and 16-17 and the brilliance of the Kane/Panarin line made up for many of the team's deficiencies particularly on the blueline. Without Crawford and Panarin last year this team made a very predicable drop in the standings. I have absolutely no optimism for this team unless Crawford is starting. The blueline is still a mess with another year on Keith's bad knees. I've heard that Seabrook has lost weight and is training hard so maybe he can be at least a competent 2nd line dman. The Hawks have a couple of good dman prospects but they are a year or so away at the earliest. And Q has proven that he has no answers unless he has several HOFers in their prime and a deep roster.

    So long story short, I don't want Ward unless we are talking late in a deep draft. They are a lottery team without Crawford. And don't forget how loaded the Central is. Even with Crawford they are probably playing for a wild card spot. Nashville, Winnipeg, and St. Louis are all much better than Chicago on paper. In terms of Ward, I would definitely take someone like Saros or whatever part of the Colorado tandem is available over Ward.

    Corey Crawford takes the ice with the rest of the Blackhawks for the first time since the ill-fated trip to Arizona on Feb. 12. A huge step in his road back to playing.

    Joel Quenneville said Corey Crawford is medically cleared to play, now he just "has to get ready to play." #Blackhawks

    So if it's just a matter of getting a couple practices in he should get a start within the first week of H2H play. They have a B2B on Saturday/Sunday.

    Quenneville said it was "not likely" that Crawford returned before that Oct. 18 date. And again, he admitted that even that date is optimistic.

    Just heard on That's Hockey today (12 Oct), that the 18 Oct date is still the target. Here's hoping!
