Niemi- Free Agent who was great in our cup run but we had to let go.
Crawford 2nd round pick who toiled in the minors with average numbers who we had no choice to give a shot.
Emery a scrap heap pickup who's working ok for now.

Look at Dallas a team that has no chance to win a cup with niuwendyk as gm they traded for Lehtonen and gave up practically nothing and drafted Jack Campbell as well.

Bluejackets same thing Scott Howson was laughed at but he did give them Bobrovsky for next to nothing.

My point we can't draft or make Decent trade for a goalie yeah we we won a cup 3 years ago but if we don't pay attention to this position more often it's going to be a long time again.
Again, Am I being overly dramatic maybe? Just very concerned.
Yep. The Hawks had no choice but to give Crawford a shot, and all he's done in his crappy NHL career is finish in the top-3 in Calder voting as a rookie, and a 2 years later, he's putting up dominant numbers.

How can people live in Chicago and go to bars? Do you all just sit around and contemplate suicide when your favourite sports team goes down a goal/point and/or losses? (That's not necessarily directed at you, but the mentality of a lot of Chicago "fans" is pathetic)
