Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Saad Returns

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well, at least we got the Brandon Saad returns thing to the United Center over early into the regular season.  Last night the U.C. did it’s normal video montage for the returning hero while wearing another teams jersey.  It’s still sad to see what could have been if Saad had become a core player for the Chicago Blackhawks for the next decade instead of just a comet blazing through the sky for a short stint.

That being said, I think besides rooting for the Chicago Blackhawks to win every game, I believe a part of us is rooting for the Columbus Blue Jackets to lose ever game.  The funny thing is two weeks and 6 games into the season, they have lost every game and they pretty much have all been blow outs.

Last night was more of the same, and if Artemi Panarin and Patrick Kane score on their breakaway chances this game would have been a huge blow out.  Two points is two points and now the Chicago Blackhawks have four days off before their next game, but the long break didn’t help last week so hopefully Coach Q shakes things up a bit this week.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Sunday morning.
