Midseason Grades for Each Line on the Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks are not where they want to be as the second half of the season gets underway.

They are two points behind the Nashville Predators in second place in the NHL's Central Division, and the Preds have two games in hand on Chicago.

They have depth and scoring power up and down the lineup, and there is little doubt that they would be favored in any best-of-seven matchup they are likely to engage in during the postseason, assuming the team can avoid major injuries.

Head coach Joel Quenneville loves to switch his lines on a regular basis. Not only will he do it from game to game, he will make changes within games.

However, for the purposes of this feature, we will hand out grades for the four lines based on these combinations.
