Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks made a couple of trades before the deadline, but none of it will really matter until next season begins.
Normally when the calendar turns to March we are talking about #IsItAprilYet, but this year March is only bringing Madness since it sure looks like the Chicago Blackhawks will be missing the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in a decade!
The thing is when the Hawks were 2-0 and had outscored their opponents 15-2 I was so excited about the seasons, and now just a few months later it’s hard to believe we had that much hope for this season.

Joel Quenneville has had a very poor season just like his stars. He stumbled on somethings but he just could never leave well enough alone and the blender kept going when it should have been shut down.
I know the season is basically over, but how is Tomas Jurco still on the same line with Patrick Kane. When it seemed like a trade deadline kind of thing it was one thing, but now that the deadline has passed there is absolutely no reason for Jurco to even be in Chicago let alone playing with #88!
This is the worst March in a decade, but it is what it is! Here are some morning links to start your Thursday morning!
