Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links: Streaking

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Yes, I know this is a Chicago Blackhawks blog, but it is the middle of summer and we are 65 days away from a meaningful hockey game so let’s give a little leeway for a Cubs fan to be excited about a 4 game win streak that is in August.  The Cubs still wouldn’t make the playoffs if they started today, but they are super close which is something we couldn’t say the past few seasons.

Anyways, back to the Hawks and the mind numbing days of summer.  Not a whole lot is going on although we know something has to happen sooner than later to get the Chicago Blackhawks in salary cap compliance and get Marcus Kruger signed.   Now it would be nice in the doldrums of summer if Stan Bowman could pull off a trade this week so we could have something to talk about!

Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
