WIth Bulin in ChiTOwn...Goodbye Thibault?

Hi Guys,

SInce Bulin is coming to Chicago, there'll be two #1's goalies in the famous black and red...
It'd be a 80% possibility imo, that THibault's going to get shipped soon.

Just wondering where and what you'd like to get back in return for Thibault?

My Opinion:
Getting another forward is important. and hopefulyl a DECENT backup..unless Leighton is ready..

but, in view of their recent signings of Lapointe and Curtis brown, hopefully, tallon
does better

Possible destinations: Colorado and Vancouver.

Can't see us getting much for Tbo, unless the team in question is desperate for a goalie, because everyone knows we're looking to dump him. Unless we throw in a decent prospect or more, can't see us getting more than a pick.

80% is about 20% too generous. He's gone, it's just a matter of when.

Tbo and a third rounder should fetch a decent 2nd line center from a team who needs a goalie. There is a team down in Tampa that is pretty desperate for a goalie right now.. Pittsburgh is also looking for a goalie..

Although Pitts have a future superstar in Marc Andre Fleury, ireckon they could sign an experienced guy for one year...

With a lockout, Fleury's probably benefited alot with not being rushed (ala. Blackburn of NYR) , he's gained an extra year of experience WHILE having a small tastre of the NHL prior to the lockout. Either pitts have done a good job, along with the timing of the lockout...its helped fleury alot imo.

knowing that, pitts might have go for a short term experienced backup, similar to what garth snow did for the isles with Rick DiPietro.

Rumor is that whether or not Bulin signed, TBO would have been on the first train out of Chicago. He could be part of a larger deal to bring in a dman or 2nd line center, or could be dumped on anyone to cut payroll

Most realistic. He isn't worth a 2nd line center in the sense that people know he wants to be traded, or that Chi wants to trade him. IMO Chicago would be lucky to get any substantial return-- I'm guessing a 4th rounder at best.

What is it with the lack of activity on this board???

Chicago is one of the franchises richest in history, and they just signed the biggest free agent that was available on the open market... I just don't get it.

I've always liked the Blackhawks (I'm a Bruins fan through-and-through, however), and I think this year Chicago's back into the playoffs. Why the curious silence?

In all honesty, I beleive alot of it has to do with how Wirtz effects the team.

I love the Hawks, almost as much as I love my Flyers, but the last few years have been tough. With the cap now in place, I'm hopeful that they will be back in competition, but I'm still very worried about the ownership.

In all honesty the lack of activity on here by Hawks fans is because of www.blackhawkzone.com . The site is awesome and has many positives over this one. No censorship, laid back mods (youre awesome Teemu), faster host, insider news, and much higher ratio of knowledgeable fans. Guys like myself only post here to get an outsider's opinion.

Whats wrong with sharing good hockey resources? People are curious as to why there arent many Hawk fans here and I answered the question. I explained why the site was better so that if HFboards wanted to attract more Hawk fans here they would know what they are up against in terms of competition.

I have to admit it, the site is excellent. This is largely because the people there are interested in talking hockey, not bashing every team they can for a signing they made/getting into rather petty arguments for no reason.

The site does have several intelligent posters who know the game of hockey. A majority of the posters seem to be far too optimistic and pro-Wirtz for my liking.

Im not sure where you get that idea. Most posters there are the most pessimistic hockey fans you'll ever find, and with good reason too.
