Plugging Holes -- Chicago Blackhawks

The Hole: A power-play specialist

The defending champions don't have too many holes -- but surprisingly, the team that dominated offensively at even strength was only pedestrian with the man advantage. Finishing 12th with a 0.6 GVT on the power play and 16th in power-play efficiency, scoring only 17.7 percent of the time, there could be a cause for concern next season, when the team could lose some of its offensive assets because of cap constraints.
