3. Despite strong games and terrific career numbers, Corey Crawford is a constant lightning rod for criticism when it comes to the Blackhawks: he is consistently perceived as the weak-link of this well-built, strong Chicago team. Just how good of a netminder is Crawford for the Hawks?

Keith: Corey Crawford will never get any credit, even though with all the great goalies to ever play in Chicago (Tony Esposito, Glenn Hall, Ed Belfour), he has the second lowest goals against average in franchise history.  Some nights, his glove looks bad, but he always battles back and he’s in the net game in and game out, which you have to love from your number one goalie!
