Now that the Draft is over, Stan Bowman turns towards UFA's.

Now that the Draft is over, Stan Bowman turns towards UFA's.
Drafting young future stars like Teravainen is great for the Blackhawks a few years down the road, but what about this coming year? The Hawks have yet to make any deals that would fix the concerns of the here and now. That all changes in July. I am a fan of building within the system,... Read more »

Teravinian, or is it Taravanien, I think Teravainen, and Hjalmarsson.

Teravinian, or is it Taravanien, I think Teravainen, and Hjalmarsson.
The Chicago Blackhawks picked up a not so large winger who doesn’t mind playing center with great hands and vision, surprise. They are also shopping Hjalmer along with his buddy Montador. Here are some thoughts on the recent news surrounding the Blackhawks roster. With the news that Jordan Staal just turned down a 10 year offer... Read more »

Valuing Hossa.
Since our last post touched upon an event that has had much bearing on Marian Hossa, why not talk a little bit about the guy on the wrong side of some of the douchebagery seen throughout the league in the form of high hits so well discussed. After all, Hossa is not the type of... Read more »

Losers discuss their future while the Kings take another step toward the cup

Looking at some of the hockey news clearing houses, a lot of folks seem to have already moved well beyond being engaged watching this years finals. That’s a shame. Given the predictions by more then a few to see LA right where they are right now, I don’t think anyone can call this a Cinderella... Read more »

Viktor Stalberg, and Michael Frolik. Thoughts on their importance to the Blackhawks.

Viktor Stalberg, and Michael Frolik. Thoughts on their importance to the Blackhawks.
It is no secret that I have been a huge supporter of Viktor Stalberg since getting glimpses of his god-given talents for the sport of hockey. I have made numerous comments on how his speed is unmatched, adding that he could very well be the fastest thing on skates since, well, ever. His Cap hit... Read more »
