That game was dreadful as hell. Fucking Crawford, feel sorry for the bastard. I can't see him facing less than 30 shots per game with the D in front of him. Seabs and Keith are really showing their age and wear and tear. 5 tripping penalties shows they are a step or 2 slow.

The PP still sucks as they try to be a finesse team out there with all that damn passing, shoot the fucking puck!!! :frustrated:

Plenty of season and I think things will work out, but damn, Crow could be blind by then. he is playing pretty damn well (albeit he has still had his WTF moments).



Well not much has changed except for the BIG fact, Crow has been injured. Time to blow some of this shit up. See if Seabs and/or Keith will waive their no trade clauses. I still of the mind to trade Toews as well. He would have to waive his NT clause as well. Kaner seems to be doing the best of all and keep that scoring.

It has been so miserable to endure this team. They need to admit they're in a youth/rebuilding phase and start to dump off these bad contracts, possibly including Toews, sadly.

Wow a win!! The Red Wings suck. Nice to see Debrincat lighting the lamp - 3x. Duclair gets first goal. I miss the old Wing v Hawks rivalry. NHL ruined a good thing.

Not sure if Q wants to stay around for the rebuild. I hope he steps down. I don't think I really want to see him fired.

It was nice to see Duclair make an impact. He could be a key element in them getting something going, finally.

I have enjoyed watching the young guys, most of them. Schmaltz, Osterle, Forsling, Gustafsson, Debrincat. I think they can have a good younger core. The Stanley Cup window has shut on the current team.

The Maple Leaf game, knew they would lose in OT, just did not think it would end that way. I had a good laugh seeing Keith out there with all the Maple Leaf jets. Them young guys are quick. I love Auston Matthews.

I am of the mind to let Crow sit the rest of the year out. Let him really get healthy and over what is ailing him. They are not making the playoffs so let the kid and aged rookie carry the load the rest of the season.

Front office has to do some serious soul searching. They may have to ask some vets to provide a list of teams they would approve getting traded to. May be impossible but they have to do something.

From what Bowman said to The Athletic recently, the Blackhawks core still has a lot to give, at least in his mind. He wouldn't consider them over the hill until they were approaching 40, but I mean..c'mon, man. Things are going bad, and quickly.

I don't see the trade deadline being much of anything in the way of a shakeup. Nobody's taking Seabrook's contract.

Offseason should be very, very telling.

They sure as hell better not be buyers. I don't think Bowman is that stupid.

It would be nice if someone came sniffing along for Seabrook - no gonna happen (nice dream though).

I heard him say the core will stay intact :roll: I know he can't say anything else, but damn, 3 of the 4 are not contributing. Their contracts pretty much make them untouchable. I hate to see franchises sink because they hold on to players too long.

Mark Lazerus went on a really interesting tear into the Blackhawks fan base a night or two ago. Basically saying that he finds it so strange and sad that Blackhawks fans, at least online, are remarkably ungrateful and need to check their privilege.

I don't feel I am hateful towards, Keith , Seabrook or Toews. I just don't want the organization to let them all get old here together. I hate the no movement clauses in the contracts. It is hard to watch Seabs and Keith play right now. I don't cuss them, but for the good of the team, it would be nice to see them traded if possible.

I have friends who are constantly saying, "the Hawks suck", F*ck them, I just have to say, "3 Cups in 8 yrs, I will take that anytime with any team.

It has been a fun ride. The ride is about past its prime. Time for renovations.
