    ^^^ I guess the only thing that it actually does is give you a team to root for.

    There is really no rivalry when it comes to the All-Star games.

    Hell, the biggest rivalry was probably in the Skills Competition when Sharp/Toews went up against eachother in the accuracy shooting competition.

    Crawford is playing great this year. He has done a pretty solid job of stopping all the shots that he needs to stop. We will need him on his game for the road trips that we have coming up.

    Are we going to have a Niemi situation after this year? How many more years do we have Crawford locked up for?

    I'm glad my support of Crawford is finally being vindcated. I fully believe that he is the better goalie between himself and Niemi. We might have him signed through next season but it shouldn't be a similar situation to last off season because the Hawks financial situation will not be as tight as it was. While its normal to see 4-5 guys turning over from year to year, I don't think we will see many off seasons like the one we saw last summer.


    Rockford, pit stop on the road to being champions.

    Was I correct in seeing that Connelly was the only guy from Rockford who made the All-Star game?

    He puts up some great points in the AHL...but I haven't seen a lot of people who think that will turn over into a great NHL career for him.

    What are the experts' thoughts?

    You saw that correctly! He was the only one to make it but with the number of rookies and injuries the team has had, that isn't all that surprising.

    I really like the kid but there are some issues. He isn't very big. He is solid on both ends of the ice and a smart player but his size might be an issue in a jump to the next level. Not to mention, we already have a large number of puck moving D-men with the Hawks and in the system which makes his size even more of a negative sadly.

    Also, with all of the young defensemen we do have, it bumps him down the list a bit and might completely factor him our of long term plans.

    That being said, I wouldn't be shocked if he gets a look by the Hawks or (more likely in my opinion) another team. Unfortunatly for Brian, it is going to be a tough road but he did come out of nowhere to begin with so ya never know.

    If I had to make a prediction though, I see him being high end AHL talent for his whole career and I can think of waaaaaaaaaaay worse ways to make a living than that.

    I like him as 1st pair AHL stud than a 4-6 minutes 3rd pair NHL player. He's more complete than the other guys, but he doesn't have the size. However, anything can be proven wrong. Hopefully he surprises us.

    I think the assertion that another team might offer him the best opportunity makes sense, it's too bad he likely isn't much of a trade chip to both help the Hawks and afford him a real shot at ice time.

    The sh-- apple doesn't fall far from the sh-- tree.

    Big road trip coming up for the Blackhawks.

    Turco gets the start in net tonight.

    We need our studs to step up. We need Hossa to start burying the puck in the net again as we head down the home stretch.

    I like this type of weekend, you get to see the players and their personalities. It also shows why Hockey is the best sportsmanship game, beause even though these guys battle each other hard every other night, they are still friends outside the ice
