So I'm glad to be back, glad to be part of it again. The Blackhawks have made it a priority this summer to add some grind to their roster, and Shaw certainly fits that bill. I think it's something we probably weren't as strong as last year as we had hoped. We did score a lot of highlight type goals and a lot of transition goals and I think Andrew can help us score some of the other goals that you need if you're going to be competitive come playoff time and that's getting to the front of the net, staying there, second-chance opportunities.
He brings those type of things. He compiled points 70 goals, 67 assists in regular-season games with the Blackhawks from , and added 35 points 16 goals, 19 assists in 67 playoff games. The Blackhawks traded Shaw's negotiating rights to the Canadiens in June of for two second-round picks. One of those picks was used to take defenseman Chad Krys at No. The other? Alex DeBrincat at No. Despite the trade, Shaw has stayed in touch with his former teammates — some even attended his wedding in Agency in Focus.

At this point, it would be better for the future of the franchise if the losses keep piling up and the Bulls secure a high draft pick in Trading veterans Justin Holiday and Robin Lopez would help achieve this goal. But even if losses are in Chicago's best interest this season, there can still be meaningful development the rest of the way that helps set up the potential for that coveted step forward in Here's a look at some key things to watch in Because of injuries last season, Markkanen, Dunn and Zach LaVine -- the three players acquired in the Butler trade -- only saw minutes together.
The Bulls were outscored by a whopping Once again this season, injuries have derailed the ability for the Bulls to see how these players mesh. That trio has played a minuscule 11 minutes together, and they're a minus-6 in that small sample size. LaVine is the latest player to get stung by the injury bug, as he just suffered a sprained deltoid ligament in his ankle that could keep him out for a few more games or even longer.
Dunn stepped up in LaVine's absence against the Spurs, going for 24 points and hitting several clutch mid-range jumpers to seal the victory. We saw these kinds of performances out of Dunn last season when LaVine was recovering from his torn ACL, but the two have struggled to click in their limited time together on the floor.
Meanwhile, Markkanen has often been an afterthought with those two dominating the ball. The Bulls need to see these three players in action the rest of this season to better determine what they have for the future. LaVine is locked in on a long-term deal and Markkanen is viewed as a franchise cornerstone, but there are still no guarantees these guys are part of the next great Bulls team.
Dunn has even more questions about his status as the point guard of the future as he tries to find some semblance of offensive consistency, plus that chemistry with LaVine.
We can also include No. The good news about Carter is he can be effective without the ball and will likely be a more important contributor on the defensive end as the Bulls' anchor.

If the Bulls' core ever gets and stays healthy, they could use that development as a springboard for the season, even if the final record isn't any good again, this is for the better. Boylen has already become the butt of many jokes for the near-mutiny, constant references to Gregg Popovich and over-the-top coach-y quotes.
However, Boylen has the full support of the Bulls' much-maligned front office.
