    I'm a big fan of collecting older sports memoribilia, I have a really old Hawks jersey made by Starter, probably from the late 80s that I still rock around the house (Sleeves are a bit short, this thing must have been huge on me as a kid)

    Also have a Dallas Stars jersey, Mike Modano was my favorite hockey player growing up. All of my ice skates and rollerblades had #9 on it, every time I've ever been in a rollerhockey league I've worn #9. He was my guy. I was sad to see him in Detroit, but don't even remember that part of his career. Guy was phenomenal.

    Few other randoms I have, Wayne Gretzky Edmonton Oilers, Super Mario OLLLLD Penguins, a Havlat Hawks jersey, Carbomb Hawks jersey, and a Brent Sopel jersey (I met him and even had it autographed have pics somewhere) haha!

    I typically like to wear obscure players and jerseys that most people never see around...

    Here's a good question too...if you had to buy a jersey of a current NHL player not on the Blackhawks...who would it be?

    For me...Dustin Brown. American and I absolutely love the way he plays hockey. He plays it the right way, 100% of the time.

    Sure he has some nice input and very solid opinions regarding all things Blackhawks but so what?

    I understand that there isnt much going on in the Blackhawks world but it seems for the past year that his "rumors" are bogus and lately he seems to be making things up and not following up on things he claims to. Some of his rumors he gets from his "sources" are all over twitter for anyone to find.

    Thoughts on his credibility?
    Hard to really get a good idea of his credibility.

    Anyone who reports on rumors is going to be "wrong" more often than they are right. By wrong, I mean the rumor doesn't come true. I could only imagine all the talk between GMs where names are exchanged (which is called a rumor if reported) and then it doesn't come true. Has to happen every day and twice on Sunday.

    I will say that JJ was the first one to report that Kane was having wrist surgery. He was the first one to do so and he took a beating up on from other bloggers and columnists who claimed it was BS. In that case, he had some sort of insider. I believe he was also one of the first guys to report the real issue with Toews last year. So I'm thinking maybe he has an inside on the injury front.

    Just really hard to say. I think he is a pretty good read most of the time but when it comes to credibility and rumors, I stick to the Dreger and McKenzies of the world. I will say though, JJ's type of rumors atleast get all of us thinking and get the conversation going, so for that we can thank him, other bloggers, and anyone with a twitter account.

I'm not convinced that he's going to continue to put up numbers like that consistently. I also don't think we need another small winger.

    Maybe Wayne Simmonds is an option. Doubt it though.
    You just posted this a few days before he got signed!

    6 years at around $4mil a year.

    Really scares me when it comes to Stalberg and what he may be asking for come next summer. If I'm the Blackhawks, no way do I pay Stalberg over $3mil but he is pretty close to that slot at the current time. I've said it before...by the deadline he either needs to be locked up or traded.

    True - I'm thinking Brookbank could step it up. Mayers was right there last year and Bollig could certainly get there if he continues to play on the 4th line.

    Over/Under - Kane and Toews will have a combined fight total of .5 (so basically will either of them drop the mitts this year).

    Great thread! Good fun to talk about while we wait for something, anything to happen along the CBA or preseason trade front.

    I'm gonna expand my answer to include my family.

    I ( like Boom!) have signed jerseys from Hull and Mikita, which are in display cases and hanging on a wall. I have a second, unsigned Hull jersey, which I wear to the games. Picked up a Duncan Keith knockoff for next to nothing, which I occasionally wear.

    I gave my wife a Toews jersey for Christmas a couple years ago. Has since been signed. She wears it to games. I tell her often that it's the sexiest thing I've ever seen her in ( laughs)!

    My 11 year old daughter has a (who else) Sharpie jersey, which is signed ( 4 hours in line at convention in 2009) and worn to games.

    My 9 year old son has a Kaner jersey, which he got signed at the 2009 convention and wears to the games. He also has a Crosby jersey and a Brendan Morrow jersey, which were gifts from relatives who live in Dallas.

    Again, cool thread!

    for those who would have liked to see Scott Hannan is a blackhawks sweater next year..he is now a Nashville Predator, according to HB. Not sure of the terms.

    Over

    I see Taser dropping them once, either out of frustration or to set an example for his teammates. Kaner wouldnt do that for either of those reason, or any reason for that matter.

    2 part question:

    True/False Sharpie leads the team in goals this year.
    Over/under 35 goals for whoever leads the team.

    Do any of you follow HockeyyInsiderr on Twitter? He seems legit, and has some good info. Definitely better than JJ or Eklund. I guess he's starting a website that will rival HB. He has been talking about some Hawks rumors recently. Check him out if you want. Its been so quiet for a while now, I'll take pretty much any Hawks news/rumors.

    I own the Black Kane jersey (not the winter classic but the old alternates) and the Black Ice Toews jersey (the coolest Blackhawks jersey to date).

    Both are fake jerseys but I could care less. Love em both.

    Do not follow him! He is the worst! He tweets false reports all the time.

    This is awesome. Him and Brett Hull were my favorite players growing up. It was really hard seeing Brett Hull on those Red Wings teams of the early 2000s, but I still cheered for him, much like I cheered for Mark McGwire despite being a huge Cubs fan. You definitely have a pretty sweet collection.

    I'll expand this even more and this is for everyone: what jersey shirts do you own? Which ones are you looking to buy?

    For me, I really want an Andrew Shaw jersey shirt. I really like watching this kid and he always gives 100%. I'd also like to get a Carbomb shirt. If he can play similar to the way he did before getting hurt, I think he's a big piece in getting us past the first round.

    As far as non-Hawks, I'll probably get a number of the guy I had listed for jerseys as well as a few other players. Maybe a Nicklas Backstrom, a Griffin Reinhart (when he comes up), a Sean Couturier, a Carey Price, a Steven Stamkos, and an M-Pac (Max Pacioretty) shirt.

    I think it's safe to say that nothing big is going to happen until the new CBA is figured out. If there's a lock-out, what good is trading away potential lock-out year picks for players? If the whole season is locked out (which is very doubtful but still possible, IMO), there would most likely be a lottery similar to the 2005 draft, which means that we'd have a chance of getting the #1 pick and drafting either Nathan MacKinnon or Seth Jones, who both look like stars.

    I have a Buff (Home), Hull (Home), Toews (Home), Kane (Winter Classic), and Keith (Road). I also have a Ladd Winnipeg Jets jersey that I bought last summer. That one got a LOT of compliments all summer haha. I'm not big on buying sweaters for other teams normally, but if I had to pick one to buy...Dustin Brown would be a great choice.

    Go Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, and Illini!
