Me being informed of the salary cap has nothing to do with what the Blackhawks are gonna do reguardless. Its nothing but a built in excuse when no fan and their knowledge of the salary cap, means nothing to Stan Bowman and his minions.Nothing. Its something to debate about on forums such as this until the world blows up but still has no effect on anything Stan Bowman does.

If Roberto Luongo was availible, and it seems he is, its a non factor not to look into aquiring him if you want to win a Cup, considering he is that much better then Corey Crawford. Is he past his prime? Well, a past his prime Lu is still miles better then Crawford.

Huh? They were a stacked team that no team could defend against. Not one team during the Cup run had a grasp on how to play the Hawks and were lured into running and gunning with a team that was built to exploit such stupidity. They toyed with teams all year and then pronouced it during the playoffs. It wasnt just a "they got hot at the right time" type of thing.

Um, it kinda worked in 2010, just sayin.

It is not stacking up on high-priced players now when you know they will be significant future dead weight.
What? Luongo is in the same boat as Hossa in terms of dead weight later on down the road. Would you get rid of Hossa?

Again, like in 2010?

Hossa and Sharp are not getting any younger, and if you actually listen to those who post in this forum, the Hawks farm system already has their replacements in the fold. If you can get a two year window where you are above every other team in the league with a proven goalie who can win you games by himself, I am sorry, but you do it no questions asked.
