Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! For the past decade the Chicago Blackhawks have added pieces at the trade deadline to try and win the Stanley Cup, but this year they maybe sellers in a season to forget.
After the Chicago Blackhawks lost on Saturday night to the Columbus Blue Jackets you might as well fired that stupid cannon 21 times to salute the end of a season for the Hawks.
It’s so hard to believe how the entire core has had just a terrible season, and yet on some nights they look like Cup contenders. The thing is on many nights they look like they are a team without a purpose.
So now it’s trade deadline day and the question is who will stay and who will go, and everyone that has ever purchased a Chicago Blackhawks jersey has to wonder if their favorite player will still be around when they faceoff against San Jose Sharks on Thursday night in California.
The thing for me is that they haven’t even been fun to watch this season if you throw out a few blowout wins on National TV. For the past decade win or lose the Chicago Blackhawks were fun to watch because they scored a lot of goals during the regular season, but now they seem to top out at 2 goals each night which isn’t a recipe for success when your #1 goalie is on the mend.
Well good luck wondering what Stan Bowman is going to do today before the trade deadline ends, and while we wait here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
