The Chicago Blackhawks: Puck control leads to a W in Dallas.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Puck control leads to a W in Dallas.
It only took 10 seconds for the Hawks to set themselves for the win, and only 90 seconds more to put it away. Choosing once again not to be consistent, the Hawks came out of the gate firing on all cylinders. Still without Toews, a much better puck control game, decent defensive effort, not taking...

Let the Bodies hit the floor: Chicago Blackhawks win again in OT over the Sharks.

Let the Bodies hit the floor: Chicago Blackhawks win again in OT over the Sharks.
All 5 goals scored in the game last night were the result of bodies in front of the net. Whether a rebound, screen, or tip-in, every puck went beyond the goal line as the result of a physical presence in front of the goaltender. The Sharks had the obvious  upper-hand in this type of play for... Read more »

Too Sharp to hold: Chicago Blackhawks win in OT.

Too Sharp to hold: Chicago Blackhawks win in OT.
On a large picture perspective, the Hawks played more responsible with the puck and without it, were not caught standing still as much, and looked a bit more cohesive as a unit early. Plus, they scored the first, and even second goal. Not without their issues, the Hawks gave up a few turnovers, but you... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks get crazy on Black Friday.

The Chicago Blackhawks get crazy on Black Friday.
Maybe it had something to do with the gluttonous state of the weekend, to eat too much, and buy more stuff you don’t need. Did you know stores opened at Midnight last night for shoppers to get in even earlier than usual (what is wrong with the world)? Well, the Hawks joined in on the crazy... Read more »

Pointing a Finger: The Blackhawks Woes.
Let us all begin the game of pointing fingers at the reasons for the Blackhawks woes as of late. We have identified a great many things on this blog in recent weeks and even long before that. So, are the issues today really any different from a year ago, or maybe even from before the Cup was... Read more »

Blackhawks Kick Off: Preview.

Blackhawks Kick Off: Preview.
The Hawks will play the new seasons first game tonight against the Edmonton Oilers. Yes, it is time. An item of great importance to myself is that the game, which will take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (say that 3 times fast), will be streamed live exclusively on ChicagoBlackhawks.com starting at 8:00 pm. John Wiedeman and Troy... Read more »

While we are talking about Blackhawks Depth (this title is a link).

I noticed something while perusing the Blackhawks website recently, the Depth Chart. A chart that showcases what looks to be your 2011-2012 roster line-up and line-combinations. Depth has been a topic of mucho discussion these past few weeks, as in: the Hawks have depth again, yay! So discussing it makes a lot of sense. However,... Read more »

Patrick Sharp agrees to terms with the Hawks: Player Eval

Patrick Sharp agrees to terms with the Hawks: Player Eval
What a great time to sit back and evaluate Mr. Sharp. As of now, Patrick will be a Hawk for the next 6 seasons earning somewhere around $5.9 mil a year starting in the 2012-13 season. You might be doing a double take after noticing that price-tag, I sure did until remembering just what Sharp... Read more »

Center of the storm?

With a few days off from work, I have been obsessing over this center thing and as we all know, too much time on my hands is fertile ground for the creation of bad analogies. Without a solid second line center, Hossa seems kinda like a Rolex clock radio. You see the quality just looking... Read more »
