It's official Scott Nichol will finish the hockey season in London w/ the Racers.

I hope Scott Nichols stays in the UK for two reasons
1. It will open up a spot in Chicago for someone with more talent
2. Scott Nichol can dominate the British League

Hard to dominate a league when you spend the last minutes of a close game in the Penalty Box.

I too hope he stays (even as a non-London fan), but he won't....

But he will not dominate the league, The EIHL is not like the British Leagues of 20 years ago where the NHL guy pops over at the end of his career and scored 200 points in 50 games.

He will put up a point per game at best...but will do more than just score, obviously he is a great leader and is good for promoting the sport...

If taking bad penalties late in the third period of the game is good for the sport...

Well the people who see him take bad penalties late in the third and see the significance of it - in a bad way are not the ones who need to have an NHLer playing in the league to make them go to see an Ice Hockey game over here, they go anyway...

Scott Nichol will do interviews of all sorts for all sorts of media, and people will see that a player from the best league in the world is playing in Britain and will think, ill go see a game...
They are the sort of people who will not notice who has taken a penalty, or the fact that a penalty late in the third is an especially bad thing...

Therefore the number of fans gained through the presence of the player outweighs the problem of having to kill a powerplay late in the game!!

A casual fan (And anyone not slightly ********) will quickly figure out that it's harder to score and easier to be scored on with one less player.

I have no idea what makes you went your spleen.....

is it the Black Hawks ownership, the NHL in general, the Black Hawks miserable performance of the past 20 odd years, the lock out or is it Scott Nichol?

Scott Nichol was the favourite Flames player not name Iginla before he signed for Chicago. I have seen him regularly for the Flames, less so with the Hawks.

He is first or second best F/O man in the league, he is an energy guy, a pest, and an honest hockey player certainly as talented as 200 other role players in the league and he is certainly priced well to continue playing, given that the owners will be penny pinching when the game resumes.

If he was taking unnecessary penalties to the extent you say he was, he would not have lasted in the lshow and if he does then it would speak volumes for you coaching staff, not Scott Nichol.

To the extent I say he was? Once is far to much agreed? Ville Nieminen looked like an actual hockey player in Calgary. And I don't think anyone will tell me that Sutter is anything other then a disciplinarian. Nichol is a very passionate energy guy. Unfortunately he's small and lacks skill. I remember him costing us two games last year (or at least a chance to come back). His play here in Chicago was weak and as such I'm not a fan of him. And the Hawks have only been awful the past ten years! Unfortunately I was 7 then...
