The team will try to improve their top-six as according to Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek of 32 TP, along with Darren Pang the Blackhawks want to improve their top six.
After

and
@JeffMarek
pondered a Jake Guenztel Chicago pairing today, we asked
@Panger40
about that possibility

That could involve a move including former Penguins and Hurricanes winger, Jake Guentzel who will be a UFA at the end of the season.
It appears he won't be signing in Carolina, despite the team wanting the relationship to last long-term, the 2017 Stanley Cup winner, wants to test the market.
Guentzel made $6 million AAV on his last contract and he is likely to see that figure climb above the $8 million neighbourhood on his next deal. Whether that happens in Carolina or elsewhere is an answer we'll know in less than a month's time.

Guentzel will be paid a significant amount of money, as a former Stanley Cup champ, not to mention he has another 30 goal season underneath his belt, with 77 points in 67 games.
Guentzel not only fills a roster need in the top-six as someone who could slot alongside Connor Bedard, his personality is a fit for the Blackhawks according to Darren Pang.
