The Chicago Blackhawks make the most sense for William Nylander

The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the worst teams in the NHL. However, they absolutely do not care about that. They care only about developing their young players which they are doing. If they keep losing despite the great development of the prospects at all levels, they will add another great one in the 2024 draft.

The one player that everyone is watching is Connor Bedard. The Hawks selected him with the first overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. He has lived up to all expectations and more as an 18-year-old in the NHL.

Adding a player like William Nylander to play with Bedard would be a wonderful idea for them. Bedard is so good at both goal-scoring and making plays so having a winger like Nylander to play with would be hockey magic.

The Blackhawks are going to eventually turn the corner and start winning a lot. Prospects like Kevin Korchinski, Frank Nazar, Oliver Moore, and Colton Dach amongst others make that seem obvious. They need to mostly all be good to turn into a championship-caliber team but it could happen.

For all of these reasons, adding someone like Nylander would help things along. They eventually would want to spend money and they can afford the cap hit that Nylander is going to command.

A fun fact is that William Nylander’s father Michael and his younger brother Alex both played for the Chicago Blackhawks. William is the best of them by far and could take this organization to new heights.
