    10/13 Hawks vs Blues

    Any link for tonight's game?

    10/11 Hawks vs Wild

    Yes, they both need to go pronto or at least benched for awhile and let the young guys play.

    Keith needs to hang up his skates and retire. He is totally washed up. He can't seem to do anything right anymore.

    10/11 Hawks vs Wild

    Something has to change asw the Hawks have no defense whatsoever. Are they not teaching defense during practices?

    Who in the hell is teaching defense on this team? Whoever it is needs to be fired and hire someone that knows to teach defense. The Hawks are totally useless defensively.

    10/07 Hawks vs Leafs

    Time to waive Ward and get rid of him. He is totally useless at this time in his career.

    Who we gonna call?

    Kane as already stated at one time that he would like to finish his career in his home town which is Buffalo. I doubt he would go anywhere else and I doubt that it would happen for at least another year or two. I guess that depends on how well the Hawks do this coming season. If they fall flat, then we know know big changes will be coming.

    You Be The Gm 2018/2019

    Kruger is definitely the 4th line, shutdown center and hopefully he will be fully healed and gets his game back to where he plays up to his strengths. Kruger has never been more than a 4th line center. Q seems to be totally lost when it comes to playing the individual players to their strength where they can succeed. AA should be 3rd line center if they hold on to him. I too, would like to see Schmaltz as the 2nd line center but feel he is much better utilized as a winger. Who else is there to fill the 2nd line center position? Maybe Hayden or Dibrincat?

    It was obvious throughout last season that the core was not happy and not playing with heart. There were a few games that they did but not many. There seems to be a lot of frustration trickling down from the organization to the players. There was a lot of mismanagement when it came to players and players roles, etc. I don't know if Q just doen't want to adapt to the new NHL or he can't. Until we see a changeover in management, we will probably not see a very productive team. Adding a couple of key players would help somewhat but most importantly is solving the bigger issues that lie within management. I can see it all coming to a head by November if the Hawks start failing miserably.

    RIP Ray Emery

    Such tragic news. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

    I think we will see a much better Kruger this fall. If he can regain his defensive play and win 55% or better faceoffs, he will be a plus for the Hawks as their defensive game was so dismal and almost non-existent last year.

    https://www.tsn.ca/blackhawks-trade-hossa-s-contract-to-coyotes-in-package-deal-1.1137581 TSN just verified the above post. Welcome back Kruger.

    Hawks Moves 2018-2019

    Elliotte Friedman Reported Earlier today that the teams were working on a deal that would send Hossa's contract to Arizona.... I am now hearing it is MUCH bigger than that... 7 players big in fact... To The Hawks: Marcus Kruger, MacKenzie Entwistle, Jordan Maletta, Andrew Campbell, 2019 5th To the Yotes: Marian Hossa, Vinnie Hinostroza, Jordan Oesterle and a 2019 3rd. Who Wins? This is from Eklund so take it with a grain of salt.

    I don't believe for a minute that Toews is that much on the downside of his career. He is able to play much better than he has the last couple of years. I don't believe for a minute Keith is near as bad as he played last year. I think they both slacked off because the team wasn't going anywhere and they had no reason or incentive to play up to their capabilities. I still the bigger problems are withing the organization and the stars are not happy about it. If the Hawks go with what they have now, the morale will be low as there is no incentive to up their games. The low morale among the stars does trickle down to the rookies. The defense was horrid and still will be unless one or two changes are made with a top 4 defense man brought in and a center who can win faceoffs.

    There are creative ways that Stan could make a trade to unload Hossa's contract as well as getting a decent return but must include a sweetener like one young roster player and/or decent prospect. Most likely trade or trades would be with Montreal or Ottawa.
