Since we're on topic of locker room chemistry, heard at Kings practice from NHL source that tone around Blackhawks not exactly nirvana.





hmmmmmmm

i think the #1 issue is loosing..

if we win.. everyones feels better.. but right now there isn't enough going on for us to be consistent winners

with another crappy FA class ahead.

might as well trade for some guys now even though we all know bowman doesn't want anyone with more than 1 year on that contract

Locker room isn't an issue this year. Players are obviously close if you look at videos from outside the rink events. They have good character guys, whoever tweeted his doesn't know what they're talking about.

Unless they meant they're down, then yes, they should be. they had a ****** game.

The fact is that it's probably pretty stupid to speculate about this because none of us really has any idea what it's like between the players in the locker room.

The think they can win and want to, not getting supported, someone needs to explain to them why it's good to punt the season.

Exactly. Especially when the quote is so unbelievably vague.

It's not the first time it's been hinted at, though.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if there's a hint of truth in it.

It's probably Scott, Crawford, Frolik, Brunette, and any other player the masses around here don't like.

Coulda been the Kings' room. They have their own set of issues to deal with right now.

Like Richards and Carter off on their honeymoon.

By the way, their honeymoon is nowhere near the "Dry Island"

This does keep coming up. It's to be expected when a team with so much talent continues to under perform.

I really wouldn't doubt if some of it has to do with Kaner. Probably some pointing fingers going on between D and Forwards in regards to break downs.

We are getting info about the Hawks from the Kings? Really? Maybe the lockerroom isn't "nirvana" but I doubt the Kings knows one thing about the goings on in the Hawks lockerroom.

It says the tip was given by an "NHL Source" during the Kings practice, not necessarily by a King.

All of the problems on this team start and end with Kane, obviously. Quick, trade him to Buffalo for Miller and Stafford! SELL HIGH! SELL HIGH!

Given the losing streak and the injuries it's hardly a surprise if the players aren't in the best of moods - what would you expect?

I would be pissed too if someone put a raft in my locker room.

Keith said that some don't like how a few players refuse to play a two way game a few weeks back. That's all that is known.


I doubt we have a problem in the room. Win and the problem will be solved

^ I think we know who those guys are. I see them all trying more now. I don't like the collapsing style though, it seems they get stuck chasing the puck.

Proves my point even more. Unless this source is a Hawks player or personnel then this is a source giving his opinion and is not an factual statement. Which means it is prolly BS.

I think the players know the "system" doesn't work, and while some players could be playing better as individuals they realize this whole thing is a ******* mess. I would actually be kind of miffed if there WASN'T a rift in the locker room. If I played on this team, saw the things that weren't working, then had some guys and the coaching staff make excuses and completely ignore addressing the issues I'd be extremely pissed and frustrated.

Among other things I think this locker room misses players that are both heady AND vocal. This team really needs about 3 guys who can be like "Look coach, this is BS. We can't keep running our PP like we do because it hasn't worked, isn't working, and will not work in the future. We can't keep collapsing on defense as that DOESN'T WORK! Guys, you can't let players roam freely in the crease as it yields WAY too many easy scoring chances." That is what this team needs.

I look at this roster and see a lot of naturally quiet guys. Toews isn't an in your face guy. Kane isn't. Seabs isn't. Hossa isn't. Sharp isn't. Keith sure as hell isn't. The only guy I see who could remotely fit this role is Mayers. This team not only lacks grit, but it lacks the vocal presence to keep players (and maybe even coaches accountable). We sure as hell know this coaching staff doesn't do it.

My money is on it being factual. We are talking about a team in complete disarray, coming off a recent 9 game skid with the last game being a loss. I think it's perfectly reasonable, moreover highly likely, that there is some dissent in the locker room with the direction of the team. As I said in my previous post, I'd be kind of concerned if there wasn't as it would indicate we have a bigger bunch of dolts than I could have ever imagined.
