    Here we go, here is a place where we can all vent about how annoyed, disappointed, angry, etc we are with the Captain, so as not to derail threads about other players. I'll start: we need more from him this season than ever due to the youth on the team. However, I for one will wait until much later in the season to be concerned about it as he literally starts the same way EVERY season. Ok now ya'll go.
  2. 3/22 Hawks vs Canucks

    can't wait to go watch us get destroyed by the avs next Friday.... ugggg... can we just forfeit?
  3. Toews

    you cannot renegotiate contracts in the nhl...
  4. Stan As Gm

    right there with ya, Bob. it's time for both of them to go and get a GM and a coach who are pulling the rope in the same direction.
  5. 3/18 Hawks vs Blues

    agree, he can man the net in the Rock.
  6. Around The League - Other Teams' News

    i dunno. mayhaps it is Gary's best interest to have a good 'hawks team, or at least one with a new fancy #1 pick, playing in South Bend on Jan 1... maybe the fix will be in for the good guys!
  7. Around The League - Other Teams' News

    was living in the D the year they lost to the Oil... had many a good laugh at the expense of many a wang fan that spring... of course it wasn't hard for them to have a comeback for me back then, but it was still awfully funny!
  8. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    but more importantly, why is this STILL a thing here? why are we still talking about T&K's deals? they are over and done with. they are both here for the duration (unless 88 suddenly decides he wants to go home and Buffalo is dumb enough to trade us a ton for him). how about let's stop beating the dead horse that was buried and then dug back up to have its decaying bones beaten on some more....
  9. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    more like Stan came in and offered 10.5 per for each and their agent started laughing until he realized Stan was serious and then said, oh, wait, ummm.... OK! then, when informed of the amount offered, they expressed their concerns, which were then addressed by Stan and all parties agreed the amount would not cause any issues cuz the cap was going to go up.
  10. 3/17 Hawks vs Sabres

    welp..... glad I slept through that one. accidentally saw the score when I was checking the fantasy scores here when I woke up, so I didn't watch too hard. glad to see 19 get 20 goals for the 11th straight time. not the season many would've liked to see from him, but you can't knock the consistency. his play has been improved the past few weeks as well.
  11. Around The League - Other Teams' News

    I dunno if they are worried about anyone, tbh. looking forward to seeing if Rinne can take them all the way or not this spring. I still have my doubts.
  12. The Crawford Thread

    **secretly now hoping for a ridiculous new contract for Schmaltz** 😜
  13. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    agree, mvr and T. I also do not want Bowman running the rebuild. I am fine with Q being let go as well, but I'd much prefer a new GM hiring his replacement. or, a new GM is brought in, and Q given a very short lease next season. I have given SB the benefit of the doubt for a while now, and I have certainly agreed with some of the moves he has made, but this season has definitely pushed to the side of him not being the best choice to be the general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks. my only hope now is that those above him feel the same in about 3 1/2 weeks.
  14. 3/15 Hawks vs Jets

    o, so would I! I'm just saying Laine may end up being the better of the 2. Matthews is having a hard time staying healthy (shoulder)...
  15. 3/15 Hawks vs Jets

    he is good and also out, but I might disagree that he is their best player.... Laine is ridiculous. the loafs may have taken the wrong guy a couple drafts back... and he is 19....
  16. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    i have no dog in this fight, but didn't JSG win the conn smythe in a losing effort in 2003?
  17. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    I should probably add this: for over a decade, we all had to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs go on without our beloved team (save one first round exit). then we got this magical 9 year run, complete with a couple conference finals appearances and 3 cup celebrations. but, even taking those away, I can say without a doubt that it is WAAYYYYYYYY more fun watching the playoffs when the 'hawks are in them than it is without them, regardless of the outcome. so, I would ask for a little slack on anything I might post here in the coming month or two cuz I am still trying to deal with the fact that I can't get excited about the playoffs this year after nearly a decade of waiting all season for them to start! getting hard not to get pissed about the little things nowadays....
  18. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    no worries. I agree, the signing of this player alone is not really an issue, it is very low risk. it is more the cumulative effect of signing the same type of player over and over as of late that is the reason for my annoyance. it seems a little tone deaf... that being said, there is plenty of time left to sign other types of players so I should probably just sit back and see what happens.
  19. 3/15 Hawks vs Jets

    thanks madrose! looking for a W tonight, draft position be damned! it'll be interesting to see how the jets look in this, we've had their number this year for some reason. I would expect they come out a little harder this evening than in other games this season. not heard about Scheifele for this evening yet, but I expect he will be out again. Laine has been on fire lately though... let's go 'hawks!
  20. Around The League - Other Teams' News

    definitely adopting the jets for this year's playoffs for a variety of reasons. really hope they meet the perds in the second round, I think it'll be a great series.
  21. Chicago Bears 2018/2019 season

    lol, that would be nice!
  22. starting a new thread for a new season. I liked the moves thus far in free agency. hopefully signing 2 WR will keep them from wasting a top 10 pick on one. I'd like to see some help/depth brought in for the o-line. hoping for a safety in the draft, fingers crossed that all those QBs go early and we have a few options when our pick comes up.
  23. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    😅 I'm pretty far from the ledge, actually. just hard not to get frustrated with the team I love being stuck in a rut and the same thing that already hasn't worked being done continuously. but hey, who knows? perhaps SB's plan all along is to fire Q and bring in someone whose game plan is a ton of small quick players blasting up and down the ice at 100mph.... reckon we will find out soon enough. about the new coach and game plan, I mean. Q is as good as gone at this point, unless someone above SB decides Stan should be shown the door first....
  24. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    nope, but I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. my consternation regarding this and other signings has nothing to do with them being a low risk signing. that is all fine and dandy. it has to do with the fact that our gm is continually signing the same players over and over and we need a variety, not a bunch of shrimps. as Tom said, we need guys that can put points on the board, which of course we do. we also need guys to make room for said players and we need guys who will score some dirty goals and we need some guys that will get in front of goalie. the players that SB keeps signing do none of those things and, in my estimation, we already have plenty of guys who can create and float around the perimeter, which has been pretty much universally accepted on the boards here I'd say, and yet we keep signing players that are more of what we already have...
