Once again, Kris Versteeg finds himself the discussion of trade possibilities for the Blackhawks, in order to relieve cap space. At 2.2 million, it won’t clear enough space for Chicago to be under the cap. However, fans may be willing to let him go after a poor showing in the 2014 playoffs. He scored only three points in the 15 games he played, and ended up having box seats for the other four.Despite his latest playoff performance, Chicago’s GM seems intent on keeping Versteeg, stating that he hopes to see more out of him for the 2014-15 season.So what should we expect to see from Kris Versteeg next season playing for the Blackhawks? Comparing his stats to previous seasons reveals some interesting facts. Obviously the biggest knock on Versteeg has been his point production. Taking a massive dip from past years, his 36 points this season have been his worst yet. Oddly enough, his previous worst of 44 occurred during the Stanley Cup winning season with the Blackhawks in 2010. His shooting percentage also dropped from 12.7% in 2012 to 9.1%.The decrease in offense can be attributed to his major decline in ice time, falling from almost 20 minutes per game in 2012 (his best season), to 14 minutes. His quality of teammates percentage was much higher in 2012 as well, due to his first line role in Florida, as opposed to the second and third line duty he was assigned in Chicago.Honestly, there isn’t much else that can be criticized about the returning Blackhawk. While his playoff run was less than savory, Versteeg’s season performance is exactly what the Blackhawks should have expected of the winger. Compared to his 2012 season in Florida, he is shooting at nearly the same rate with 7.5 shots per 60 minutes of ice time, his takeaway to giveaway ratio is almost identical, and he’s just as reluctant to hit. He has cut down on bad penalties as well, now drawing more than he is taking.Considering this is Versteeg’s first year back from an injury-plagued season in 2013, he did fairly well for a winger that was given a reduced offensive role on a new team. Versteeg’s outlook with the Blackhawks is further enhanced by the recent addition of Kevin Dineen as assistant coach. Dineen has worked well with Versteeg in the past during his time as head coach in Florida, and could provide a spark to his game in the coming season.
