Chicago Blackhawks: 4 Reasons Johnny Oduya Will Help in the Playoffs

March 6th, 2012 by Michael Gibbons Leave a reply »
Many fans were very underwhelmed last week when the Blackhawks traded for Johnny Oduya.

They acquired Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets for a second- and third-round pick in the 2013 draft, which seems like a lot for me.

However, sometimes the under radar moves are exactly the right move to make.

In his first three games, the Hawks are 3-0, and after a rocky first period he has been very solid.

They first paired him with Brent Seabrook and things seemed like a disaster as the Maple Leafs jumped out to a 3-1 lead.

However over the last 160 minutes of hockey it has been a very different story.

So with only 15 games left until the playoffs, how will Oduya be able to help the Hawks reach their one goal?
