dont you notice that kane plays a little less scared when Carcillo is out there? Carcillo has alot more skill then people think..he just needs to screw his head on straight and he could easily put up 50 points if he wanted to..esp. with Toews and Kane playing at a higher level with him out there.
The amount of skill that Carcillo had playing with Hossa/Kane was very apparent. The nice thing about that line is we would all of a sudden have a 2C (Kane) and I really don't think we lose anything defensively on that line because Hossa is an absolute tank and Carcillo is solid defensively.
The issue with Carcillo is that those borderline calls are going to go against him every time...as they should. He has been a bonehead in the past and if he gets his head on straight he really could be a big X-Factor for the Blackhawks this year.
If you HAVE to go Vancouver...who are you going to go for? I used to love Kesler but his diving antics are getting old.
What about Detroit? For me...it would be Datsyuk no question. Absolutely love watching him play.
How about this for a discussion...if you had to get a "rivals" jersey, who would you get?
Vancouver: Schneider (yup, American!)
If you really get a Canucks jersey, get an older player - not one of the puds on their team now. I'm talking Trevor Linden or even Pavel Bure.
You get a Sedin or Luongo jersey, you may as well never go to a Blackhawks game again.

it was free. and no, i didn't end up making it.
Bobby Ryan has one of the more interesting background stories. If anyone doesn't know what I am talking about, do a little research and read up on it.
Tough decision on the "rivals" jersey selection.
STL: As much as I hate him, I think he's a great player.....Backes
DET: ewwww, maybe Lidstrom I guess. class act
I do not have any insider information or anything like that but I talked to a friend of my cousin's who does the graphics on the scoreboard at Hawks games and he has heard rumblings that the NHL wants to get a deal done before Thanksgiving Showdown game that is going to be new this year. Supposedly NBC and the NHL would lose a **** load of money and NBC wants this game to happen.
Take it for what it is worth.
