Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links-Is It August Yet?

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Is it August yet? I know it’s not but it’s coming soon and with August goes the final month before the Chicago Blackhawks training camp can get started, and preseason, and everything else that goes along with hockey instead of just heat and baseball.

Granted the Chicago Bears will be opening training camp this week so we have that going for us except for the fact I really have no expectations for them this year unlike last year when everyone was thinking Super Bowl and their defense was just plain bad.  I do have some expectations for the Blackhawks and that’s why I can’t wait for training camp.

I guess it doesn’t matter either way because it’s July, so here’s some morning links to kick off your Thursday morning.
