Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Conference Finals are in full swing, and now we are only a week or so away from the Stanley Cup Final. 

The Chicago Blackhawks haven’t played in nearly a month, and after some early firings, things have settled down around Stan Bowman as the draft is the next thing on the Blackhawks calendar of events this offseason.

This allows everyone some time to watch the Conference Finals which are off to a pretty good start even if I don’t like any of the 4 teams that are still left in the tournament.  It’s funny when it comes to rivalries or teams that beat you in the playoffs.  Some want them to lose right away while others feel like it’s a sign of respect if the team that knocked you out goes on to win the Stanley Cup. So who knows you may be rooting for a Predators win.

The other thing about Final exams is the fact that we are starting to write our report cards on players.  Of course it’s one person or writers opinion on that player, so the fun thing for me is to see what grade you the fan gives each and every Chicago Blackhawks player. So please in the comments sections of the report card, let us know what grade you give that player in that post.
