There Might Not Be Blood

There Might Not Be Blood
Tonight’s the night.  Bloodthirsty Blackhawk fans have been looking forward to the “Raffi Torres revenge game” since that fateful night last spring when Torres injured Marian Hossa.  Callers to the Score along with the Twitter / Facebook folks are licking their chops at the impending demise of the Coyotes’ winger. Well, I think those fans... Read more »

Bowman must make a deal sooner than later

Bowman must make a deal sooner than later
Even with the Blackhawks’ nine game losing streak over, thanks to a 4-2 win in Madison Square Garden over the Rangers Thursday and a 6-1 win in Columbus Saturday, General Manager Stan Bowman would be wise to make a deal sooner than later. The NHL’s trade deadline is Monday, February 27th, but Friday, some of... Read more »

Healthy Hossa looking dominant again

Healthy Hossa looking dominant again
Maybe it’s all of the working out he does, but Marian Hossa looks like a new guy.  When the Blackhawks signed him in the summer of 2009, I was ecstatic.  Hossa was the final piece of the Stanley Cup puzzle, and it worked.  However, many fans became concerned with Hossa on the long term.  Before...

Blackhawks Offseason Mailbag Vol. 1

Blackhawks Offseason Mailbag Vol. 1
With things a little slow in Blackhawks land right now, I thought I’d take some time and answer a few email / facebook questions.  I’ll try to do a few of these before the season begins, and one every month during the season.  If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition, send...

Hawks re-sign Frolik, ink Lepisto

Hawks re-sign Frolik, ink Lepisto
In the hours before the Blackhawks convention, the Blackhawks announced a pair of signings. Michael Frolik, who was arbitration eligible, re-upped for 3 years, $7 million.  That’s a $2.3 million cap hit, which is a little high for my tastes.  He was one of the best Hawks in the playoff series vs Vancouver.  If he...

Blackhawks address needs on busy first day of free agency

Blackhawks address needs on busy first day of free agency
Yesterday, with the signing of defenseman Steve Montador, the Blackhawks addressed their biggest need…a physical defenseman versatile enough to play in the Hawks aggressive system. Today, the need for toughness was addressed, and big time.  The Blackhawks agreed to one year deals with forwards Andrew Brunette, Dan Carcillo, and Jamal Mayers, as well as veteran... Read more »

Last night, the Blackhawks traded a conditional 7th round pick to the Buffalo Sabres for the negotiating rights to defenseman Steve Montador.  The Hawks had until Friday at 11am to work out a deal with the defenseman, or he would become an unrestricted free agent.

Stan Bowman and Dale Tallon must be besties.  For the third time in the last two seasons, the Blackhawks have made a trade with the Florida Panthers. The Blackhawks traded the negotiating rights to Tomas Kopecky to Tallon and the Panthers for a conditional 7th round draft pick.  The Blackhawks were going to let Kopecky... Read more »

Just when you start to respect the Canucks, they open their mouths

Last night’s Game 7 in Vancouver may have been the best hockey game I’ve ever watched in terms of drama, excitement and stress.  As much as it pains me to admit, the better team won.  The Canucks took it to the Hawks for much of the series, and probably deserved to win.   Over the... Read more »

New Hawk Chris Campoli HAD a hot girlfriend

When the Blackhawks traded for Ottawa’s Chris Campoli Monday, they ALMOST acquired some new eye candy for the United Center.  His ex-girlfriend, Gia Allemand, is attractive.  Apparently, they broke up last year.  Oh well.  It doesn’t really matter.  I’ll stop talking and get to the pics.  You’re welcome.   Not that it matters, but she was...
