Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks loss in Game #7 of their first round series really set in yesterday when the Chicago Blackhawks stars did their exit interviews.  The loss was a tough one to swallow, but watching all the players empty out their lockers and answer questions for the last time until September really was tough to watch and listen.

The one thing that was surprising to hear was that Chicago Blackhawks Captain Jonathan Toews said he never thought for one instance in the series that they were going to lose.  You have to love that type of confidence from the leader of your franchise, but in the back of your mind don’t you kind of wish there had been some sort of fear in the back of the Chicago Blackhawks heads especially in Games 3 and 4 at the United Center.

The Chicago Blackhawks now fearlessly head into an offseason and everyone that’s a free agent wants to stay, but guess what 1. it’s the salary cap era, and 2. the players all hire agents to sign their clients to the highest possible contract so don’t get all excited thinking that players are going to give the Chicago Blackhawks a home town discount just because they love the franchise.
