    Shaping up to be a 2 player draft. Hawks currently sitting with the 4th worst record.

    Two more games played than bottom three. Hopefully King Henrik turns back the clock on Thursday. I’ll be there Sunday for the Tom Wilson shitshow

    Praying we can somehow dump Anisamov and the 2 years left on his deal at the deadline. Would be fine giving him away.

    Palmieri's accidental goal last night was a testament to just how inept the defense has been this year.

    Need to trade AA and Gufstafsson to help the tank. Also, play Cam Ward more. Would be nice if Colliton stopped playing Kane 25 minutes a night too.

    At some point even the staff needs to understand the season is over. Kane shouldn't be playing 25 minutes a game come february

    Supposedly the Hawks have asked Keith about a trade. I'm so torn. On the one hand, he's just not that good anymore and moving him probably helps the rebuild. On the other, he's the greatest Hawks defesenman of all time, will go in the hall of fame, and have his number retired. I'd actually love if he stayed here and only played for the Blackhawks.

    If we can get a legit asset in return... Move him. If its some lotto ticket type player I say keep him around.

    What? He'll be out 4-8 weeks, the Hawks will lose a bunch of games and then he'll be fine. As a bonus he's a piece of shit so its kind of funny when he gets hurt.

    I'm torn on the tank. Isn't Kane the last overall number 1 to win a cup?

    If you mean the last #1 taken yes. But he and Crosby have 6 Cups between them in the last decade.

    Good shot Stamkos gets one this year as a #1 overall (and Hedman as the #2). Doughty has 2 as the #2 overall

    Welp, forget about it after today.

    Pretty amusing Ottawa is dead last but the Avalanche have their pick and will add KK or Hughes to that group.

    Agree, its clear this team isn't playoff worthy and wont do shit if we backed into it. Dump Ansimov and Gustafsson and get some assets

    at this point why risk his health... He's an upgrade but he's not going to fix this piss poor defense. Shut him down and start fresh next season.

    Both the Hawks and Bulls can fuck off... a chance to land elite talent via the draft and they decide to start winning to land in the middle of nowhere and fuck themselves outta a great draft pick

    Hawks going to fuck around and finish the last team out of the playoffs and end up drafting 14th. If they win their game in hand they'll be one point out of the playoffs.

    I wish stupid fucking Colliton would stop trying to burn out Kane and Toews in a meaningless season to do his best to just miss the playoffs instead of picking around 5 or 6.

    Scott Powers:

    15. The Blackhawks need to add a top-9 forward to create some more scoring balance, too. One option may be Dominik Kubalik.

    I’ll expand on him in the coming weeks, but the Blackhawks expect Kubalik to be on their NHL roster next season. They traded a draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings for his rights, and he’s expected to sign after the World Championship. Kubalik led Switzerland’s top league in points this season

    “We expect him to be on our team next year,” Stan Bowman told me recently. “We’re going to sign him. I think he’s going to play a role on the Blackhawks next year.

    “The thing you notice is he’s 6-1, almost 200 pounds, like he’s a powerful guy. Great hands, can score, he can make plays, he can skate.”
