The first week of August had a few big news stories, especially if you’re a Blackhawks fan – Bryan Bickell‘s wedding, Stanley Cup sightings (because, you know, it’s ours now), and changes with the United Center’s nickname. But first, here is the best reply from last week’s hashtag #NHLSpoilers.

  Just recently, news broke that the United Center would no longer have the “Madhouse on Madison” signage. We have a poll on our site to get your reactions, but here are just a few of the first.

Stan Bowman made some room on the team for the Blackhawks’ young talent, and he seems pretty excited about it. But it looks like we’ll have to wait at least another year before we see 2012 first round draft pick, Tuevo Teravainen.

Our first tweet accidentally restarted the #ShawFacts craze.

So in honor of that, this week’s hashtag is #HockeyFacts.
