Red Light District Summer Mailbag Vol. 1
Since it’s summer, and nothing is really happening in Blackhawk land, I figured it was time for this summer’s first mail bag (not to be confused with male bag.  That’s a different blog). Readers of this blog, Twitter followers, and Facebook people chimed in with their queries.  Here’s what they had to ask. Sarcastic Mike... Read more »

As soon as the Blackhawks hoisted the Stanley Cup in Boston, you know changes were coming…and quickly.  It only took six days for Stan Bowman to conduct a draft, re-sign Bryan Bickell, and trade Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik.  Five days later, former Hawks Viktor Stalberg and Ray Emery have new homes (Nashville and Philadephia,...

Blackhawks re-sign Bickell, trade Frolik and Bolland
At Sunday’s NHL Draft, Stan Bowman made more moves than many GMs make in an entire summer.  He traded Stanley Cup hero Dave Bolland to Toronto for a 2nd round pick, a 4th round pick and another 4th in 2014.  Then, he traded Michael Frolik to Winnipeg for a 3rd round and 5th round pick....

Quenneville has options if Toews can't play in Game 6
Saturday night in Chicago, the Blackhawks put together their most complete effort of the Stanley Cup Final so far.  There was no dominating period like in Game Two, but for close 60 minutes, the Hawks dictated play and remained aggressive.  In the end, the Hawks would take Game Five 3-1, and are now one win...

Buckle up, Hawk fans...it's going to be a long series
It’s never easy to win a Stanley Cup. When the Blackhawks won it in 2010, maybe it seemed too easy.  That memorable season, the Hawks had their share of scares in the playoffs, but did it ever really feel like they wouldn’t win?  Not to me.  The Hawks were so much better, so much deeper...
