Just trying to make sense of something, I'm not proposing anything and you won't see threads like: Ballard + Raymond + 2nd for Keith!!!!!11!!one! appearing anywhere because of this, I promise.

Please and thank-you.
Seabs is the number 1 and keith 1b, but everyone is still in denial about keith's true form, so 90% of hawks fans will say Keith is #1

Have fun with that, Philly!
Go ahead and add Lilja to the list. Reports are saying he can come back by December, others say sooner. He just turned 37 so I can't imagine he'll be a whole lot of good even on the 3rd pairing until the end of the year. Hip surgery for Lilja.

Holmgren has to be shopping aggressively now, even for depth. There may be an opportunity. Tough to believe he would part with a good player though.

I am with you on this...but I sure as hell hope to be proven wrong by Keith this year...

Not exactly NHL, but Toews is rightfully getting some love in this poll:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1245515

Nice to see folks remember how dominant he was during the Vancouver games.

1 month, 10 days until preseason starts. Being a bandwagoner, this is the first season for me that starts on a pessimistic note. I hope we come out hard.

just looked at the stats and saw that 2 Hawks were in the Top10 in Western Conf scoring.

Kane was #13 in the western conf.
Toews was #26 and would have been Top3 over 80+ games

Simmonds going to be on trading block soon. Holmgren just extended him for 6 years.

Hartnell can join him! Flyers just re-signed him for 6 years. Haven't seen the terms.

Yep. Hawks very likely have the best top-4 forwards of any team in the NHL, all factors considered. The problems arise once you get past the elite players on this roster.

I like the Hartnell deal for the Flyers. Wonder how this will all work with the CBA but yeah, Holmgreen will trade a Top6 player for an overpaid scrub in a year

Hartnell's contract on it's own is a very good contract. The NMC probably cost Hartnell a few million. This really makes me scratch my head about the Simmonds contract.

It's just a preseason prediction, but THN apparently thinks highly of us:

http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...ons-No-10.html

Guaranteed to be in their top four just by obvious process of elimination, so nothing wrong with a home ice advantage projection.

According to Icethetics.... the Hawks might be thinking about un-retiring their Winter Classic thirds?

Quote:
Early reports had the Chicago Blackhawks resurrecting their old black third jersey after retiring their Winter Classic-inspired alternate in 2011. Now, that may no longer be true.

Reebok's message to retailers had indicated the Hawks would have no third jersey, just like last season. But more recent updates list a "black" third jersey for the club. But does that mean the 1996 black or the 2009 Winter Classic black?

There is one potential indication. A video featuring Blackhawks draftee Teuvo Teravainen shows the first-rounder in a couple of behind-the-scenes photo shoots and autograph signings in which he's wearing the Winter Classic-inspired sweater. Why produce marketing materials with your newest star wearing a jersey he'll never wear in a game? Unless he will wear it in a game.

All of these details are kind of circumstantial. We'll have to wait until we hear something from the team or see them take the ice wearing something that's not white or red.

Not buying it, and the guy does admit that it's circumstantial evidence at best, but still odd nonetheless.

Hall just got extended for 6M a year over 7 years... I'm not sure I'd have given him that right now, or at least that long of a deal.

Sounds like they are way overpaying him now, with the hope that the contract is a bargain within a few years. Probably a good gamble to take, so they have a chance of locking all these young guns up.

Locking down their young guns certainly is good for them (and I honestly half-expected them to fail doing so), but let's see what else they've done. They've gotten several great forwards the past couple years and have done nothing with them so far, so let's see what they add to compliment them.

Not sure I'd give him that long of a contract with his injury problems. He seems to get lit up all the time.

I hope not, and judging by the video, he's certainly just grasping at straws.
