Blackhawks' Lineup Decision Raises Questions



The Chicago Blackhawks have unveiled their new lineup, and it's raising some eyebrows among fans and pundits. One of the most prominent talking points is the absence of Andreas Athanasiou from the starting roster.

Athanasiou, known for his skill and speed, has proven himself to be a valuable asset to the team. Last season, he displayed excellent chemistry with players like Reichel and Kurashev, making him a fan favorite and earning himself a $3M contract. Despite his evident talents, Athanasiou finds himself on the outside looking in with the latest lineup adjustments.

The new lines introduced by the Blackhawks are as follows:


Foligno-Bedard-Kurashev
Dickinson-Reichel-Raddysh
T. Johnson-Donato-Perry
Katchouk-Entwistle-R. Johnson

However, the decision to relegate Athanasiou to the role of an extra player has left many questioning the team's strategy. Athanasiou is fully fit and ready to contribute, yet he did not secure a spot in the starting lineup.

Andreas Athanasiou should not be an extra. He's clearly one of the more skilled players on this team, and was excellent with Reichel and Kurashev last year.


As the season progresses, it will be interesting to see if the Blackhawks' decision regarding Athanasiou will pay off or if his absence from the core lineup will become a topic of continued debate among fans and analysts
