Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s finally August!! The summer is in it’s final home stretch and there’s only one long month on the calendar before the Chicago Blackhawks get back to work at training camp on the campus of Notre Dame.

It really has been a quick summer though the past few weeks have been brutal on the sports TV front.  Sure, the Chicago Cubs are way better than last year, but there’s only so much baseball one can endure, and watching golf unless it’s a major is quite boring to me.  I know most people are stoked about the opening of NFL training camps.  The magazine racks are already full of fantasy football magazines so we at least get football in September to look forward to.

The best thing to look forward to in my eyes will be the Chicago Blackhawks new roster and how it will gel, so that’s why I can’t wait for August to fly by so we can see the boys fighting for roster spots in September.  Here are some morning links to kick off you weekend and your August!

If you missed it, the Chicago Blackhawks will be breaking ground soon on a new practice facility (Blackhawks)

The real question about the practice facility is why haven’t the Chicago Blackhawks had their own all this time, but it’s great for Chicago’s West Side (The Committed Indian)

It seems like a weird statement to me, but Johnny’s Ice House owner is excited about the Chicago Blackhawks new practice facility (ESPN Chicago)

We wrote about it yesterday as well, but Jonathan Quick gave Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane a lot of praise this past week about being two of the best in the NHL (CSN)

See what transpired for Trevor van Riemsdyk as he took the Stanley Cup to the Jersey shore this past week (Blackhawks)

A popular question going around Twitter yesterday, Is it time for the Nashville Predators to trade Shea Weber (On The Forecheck)

From our Fansided brethren in St. Louis, Why the St. Louis Blues will win the Central Division…. They always do and then exit the playoffs in the first round right???!!!!! (Bleedin Blue)

The curious case of ex-Kings Mike Richard and how he is still in limbo land (TSN)

The biggest story out of Anaheim is John Gibson‘s new mask, which is Duck meets Rambo and it’s pretty cool. (Puck Daddy)
