Well they did lose their starting goalie because of cap issues.
They also unloaded Byfuglien, Ladd, Campbell, and Brouwer. Sorry I'd call that a bunch of key pieces.
They've got lucky in the sense that both Crawford and Emery are playing AMAZING this year. Having draft picks like Saad and Shaw actually pan help makes the future look bright.
I just Toews or Hossa don't get lost to injuries like they have been in years past.
