    6'8" on dry land, close to 7' on skates. Why pick him to rumble? Even if Westgarth is 6'4", stay in your weight class , Bub.

    ETA: Westgarth has a broken nose, and also says "for realsies." It's no wonder he got stomped with vocabulary like that...
    "I think for realsies that was the first one," he said. "It's nice and flat anyway. So I'm sure it's been broken and I never really noticed."

    We've played 4 more games than anyone else in the Central and are in 3rd. A few nice games here and there, and the trip was 4-2, but 4th? Come on.

    I don't buy it. Hawks are better than they've played, but that only counts for so much. Good teams win, period. Good teams beat better teams, and win when they should lose.

    After thinking about it for a minute I must say it is completely absurd that the Hawks are 4th on ESPNs rankings. They should be at 10th in front of Columbus at the highest.

    Every time I walk by a spy shop I think, I need to put some surveillance on somebody. Rick's been acting fishy. I need to buy a little camera. I need to buy a safe that looks like a Coca-Cola can. Or better yet, a safe that looks like a Spray and Wash can. That would create better situations. 'Hey Mitch, can I use the Spray and Wash?' 'Yeah, if you want to spray your shirt…with documents!'

After, you then go ahead and create a new statement for the next person to comment on. Remember...quality over quantity. Let's have some fun here. (Also, don't be afraid to comment on someone's True or False if you believe it to be different, just stay on topic and make sure to give your reasons).

    True or False: Corey Crawford will start in more games for the Blackhawks by the end of the year than Marty Turco.
    False
    1) To me, looks like he is still in a Dallas system, after so many years cant blame him, he'll find his groove in the Hawks system.
    2) Need the offense to step up to and Turco will be fine
    3) Turco has always had slow starts, always heats up 2nd half of seasons. The way I see it, if Corey is named starter Turco steps up and plays better like he did last year when the Stars traded for Lethonen

    It is high but im not surprised. ESPN drastically changes it's power rankings each week. One bad week put TB at 16 from 10 the previous week.
    Yeah, some win streaks can move a team from 20th to 2nd, I always enjoy the TSN ones, i'll post their link to it.

    If the option was available I'd trade ESPN for TSN in two seconds.

    I think alot of people would. To me the ESPN rankings are what the fans want to see, where TSN is completely neutral

    Kane will score 30 goals.
    True.

    Kane is on pace for 29 goals but he hasn't has many multi goal games yet...you know this will come. It seems that the team is gelling better and playing better. This will lead to more opportunities for Kane and hopefully we continue to get on the powerplay where Kane can make some magic happen. Kane had a very slow start but now has 9 pts in his last 7 games...I feel some goals coming on. I see him ending up with around 35, which is great for a playmaker like him.

    True/False: The Blackhawks will trade a current Blackhawks roster player before the deadline this year (also, if you say true - let us know who you think it might be and why)

    True, I'm not sure who yet, but I think the Hawks trade for a #5 D-man

    True/False: Brent Seabrook signs before the Trade Deadline

    False

    I just don't see how the hawks can manage to keep Seabs given the cap situation. He's going to want and deserves more than his current 3.5 million. I expect him to receive offers in the off season that the hawks will unfortunately be unable to match.

    True/false: Stalberg is not only a great replacement for Versteeg but is also a better overall player.

    True, many may not agree with me but Versteeg has pretty much reached his peek, Stalberg though is still developing into a better role on a team that suits his style of play

    True/False: John Scott scores a goal this season?

    I actually believe we do keep Seabrook. He is probably going to make around 5 Mil or so, so we only have to come up with $1.5Mil more. He is a RFA so teams are going to have to put up a ridiculous amount if they want to sign him away. The NHL might have a new TV deal in place next year, so the salary cap would go up. The Blackhawks also have $4mil in "free" cap space coming off the books next year when the Toews/Kane bonuses are over with. I think Seabrook is definitely on this team next year.

    False. I think Scott plays in minimal games the rest of the year because the Blackhawks are close to being healthy and realize how well they play with Scott NOT in the lineup over the road trip. Also, when he does play, he only gets a few minutes a night.

    True/False: Patrick Sharp will lead the Blackhawks in goals this year.

    Just saw on ESPN Hossa will miss 2-3 weeks. I'll take that.

    EDIT: looks like someone already mentioned that.
