Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks are believed to be in the mix for Hobey Baker winner Jimmy Vesey, and the chase begins today which should make at least a few days in August pretty exciting.

The Chicago Blackhawks as we all now need offensive talent, and it makes total sense that Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman will be trying to secure the offensive weapon, but should the Chicago Blackhawks be all in with the history of the Hobey Baker winners?

It was just a few years ago that the Chicago Blackhawks signed Drew LeBlanc and well he played one game in Chicago and pretty much we never saw anything from him again.  He was too slow to make it in the NHL, and at the end LeBlanc didn’t live up to any hype.

So the question is will the sales pitch by Jonathan Toews be necessary to get Vesey to sign with the Chicago Blackhawks with the carrot being the chance to play on the top line with the Captain, or in the end will the hype for Vesey even be worth it in the end.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be trying to win their fourth Stanley Cup in 8 seasons, and that ride will most likely be a lot more likely if they land a talent like Vesey as a free agent this week. Do you think Stan Bowman can pull off the free agent signing?
