Contemplating Bryan Bickell.

Contemplating Bryan Bickell.
With some space between my last post that touched on the 2 cards in the Hawks deck that I anticipate great things from next year (if still here), why not turn to the card I am not sure should be held onto. Bryan Bickell is the biggest question in terms of single player performances for... 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 »

Oduya signing speaks louder than his cap hit.

Oduya signing speaks louder than his cap hit.
I have been sitting on this recent development to see what others were saying, and hopefully, to find the silver lining in it all. Fortunately for me, other bloggers have come out with their negative reactions first, which allows for me to be the calm mannered voice for a change. However, I’m not so sure... Read more »

A few reasons why the Chicago Blackhawks are in trouble.

A few reasons why the Chicago Blackhawks are in trouble.
When Joel Quenneville felt the need to fire Mike Haviland, and then follow up with comments on the dysfunction of the coaching staff, you knew things were getting bad.

Hopefully the video of Stalberg works (I haven’t posted any videos yet at this new platform). It illustrates just what can come out of his skills and talents.... 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 »

NHL Draft in Review: Just where do the Blackhawks stand post Campbell and Brouwer?

With the draft behind us and some big changes having taken their course, the Hawks are now on a path of moving pieces. While the whole transition from a team that can’t make it into the playoffs, to a Stanley Cup championship team might have started with Campbell, their success does not depend on his... Read more »

Wouldn't you know it, Brian Campbell trade to Florida a reality. Huge options for Blackhawks emerge.

I think that fourfeather and beaverwarrior’s comments from last post about Campbell’s inevitable trade should be treated as gold and posted across the internet for everyone to see. Right on the money. Florida, in need of finding some expensive players to raise their cap hit above the sea level, might have found it in Brian... Read more »
