    Winter Classic Jersey Unveiling

    Nice Jersey. But I'm for a little more playing and a lot less unveiling.

    I'm wondering what they have brewin'. I can't imagine that they're done. I didn't expect them to target an over paid big name, but I'm kind of the mindset that they're not done.

    Cam Ward

    I wouldn't say it was overpayment. This seems to be about the going rate for a legit backup. I know there's a lot of time left but so far the FA signings are kind of underwhelming.

    Ryan Hartman

    Really like this deal for the Hawks. I'll defer to Don Cherry on Ryan Hartman. "Came into the league as a crusher, scored a couple goals thought he was a rusher, pretty soon he's gonna be an usher" A 1st rounder, Victor Ejdsell (a 6' 5" 214lb) Forward and a 4th rounder. And the Hawks are no worse for the wear this year. All upside for Chicago.

    Do the Blackhawks deserve a pass?

    No pass. I've lived through some bad Hawk teams but those tickets didn't cost what these do. It was obvious they were putting a bubble team on the ice this year. So no, no pass. Unfortunately sometimes spin puts people in seats.

    If... And I mean IF they miss the playoffs...

    Remember the rumors after the cup when the team lost to Vancouver in 2011? The media was saying that there was a rift between the Players and Q on one side and Bowman and Mc D on the other. It was stated at the time that was the reason Al MacIsaac was brought in. To educate Mc D on hockey and get control of the lineup. I believe that rift has intensified and the 70% effort or so you're seeing on the ice, is a representation of that. I think Bowman goes. I think Q with the players has more power.
  8. So if they miss the playoff's.. What do you think happens? Who gets fired? Who gets traded? What else happens?

    Joel Quenneville

    This team's success was always based on their depth. Remember that? They always had 3 or more lines that the opposing team had to worry about. Now they have 1 - 1 1/2 depending on the night and how you see it. They're an average NHL team right now. And they're an average team that likes to play on the perimeter. Don't forget about that part.

    You Be The Gm

    Umm.... Stan, not that there's anything to get excited about, but I thought I'd let you know that all the teams that your team routinely plays against have just gotten a lot better today. Just FYI.

    Stan will follow his normal pattern. He'll do nothing or a really minor deal for some sort of depth. Hossa and Sharpe will return and they'll promote it like they aquired 2 all-stars. And they'll be a 1st/2nd round playoff exit because this is basically the same team as last year that can't play against big teams that trap. Or against teams that are just really patient and play a tough defensive game.

    Dear Stan, How are you? I will make this short. I know that the organization is already painfully aware of this fact. That you won a cup with Dale's team and that you've struggled to make the playoff's for what appears will be 2 years in a row now with YOUR formula. The interesting thing is that the fans are all well aware of that fact too. PS Can't wait for the next One Goal commercial! They're almost as entertaining as the product on the ice this year. Regards, Hawk Fan of 40 years

    Stan as GM? He's not a Hockey GM. He's a cap manager. He dissasemled the cup team that Dale Talon built and replaced the character players with toilet paper. The Cup was Dale's doing. I personnally won't forget that.
