Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman made another big move yesterday, and with his big move the Chicago Blackhawks talent pool took another hit.

In Stan We Trust has taken a real licking lately especially this year with the failed Stanley Cup run with the Chicago Blackhawks giving up another #1 draft pick for Andrew Ladd. But looking back that wasn’t the trade that started the doubt in Stan.

The trade that started the doubts had to be the Patrick Sharp trade and not the fact that Stan Bowman had his hands tied by trying to find a home for Sharp and his contract, but it was the fact that Bowman threw in Stephen Johns in the deal.

Now the fact that today Stan Bowman with his hands tied once again got rid of the boat anchor Bryan Bickell but had to throw in Teuvo Teravainen.  It seems like just yesterday the Rockford Ice Hogs were a stacked team and all of us Chicago Blackhawks fans couldn’t wait for the future to arrive in Chicago, but now it’s totally different with the cupboard bear.

Two years ago the future of the Chicago Blackhawks looked great with Brandon Saad and Teuvo looking like stars for the next decade wearing the Chicago Blackhawks and now they are gone and so really is the long term future.

The Chicago Blackhawks GM has done some great things and moves while being up against the salary cap number for years, but in the past calendar year he’s really sacrificed the future.
