    I don’t see how he returns next year. It’s probably the only move Stan can make to save his job. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the entire front office shift

    That wasn’t worth losing out on the first pick of the draft.

    Hope we see some major roster changes... especially with the defenders.

    You guys think Stan is around next season?

    do you guys think Jeremy is around next season?

    let’s pray if #1 is a yes that the Crawford contract isn’t the final anchor to Stans run

    Who knows what Crawford will get but I'd try to get him for 2 years, $9 mil

    Chicago Twitter seemed to be feeling like we won’t be seeing Crawford back.

    If they are going in house and low dollars for the goaltending next year. You better fix these defensive pairings or find a new coaching staff. Probably both.

    Maybe I missed it... but surprised Stan hasn’t used his buyout on Smith and or Mata.


    I’ve also sold myself on giving Crawford a 2 year deal at 3.5m and drafting Askarov.

    Stan should be doing this rather than trying to deal for Matt Murray

    I would still bring Cory back at 3.5 for one year if they swung that trade.

    Unless these young defensemen have a big impact lord knows we need to top goaltenders if we want to sniff the playoffs

    Seeing some stuff on Twitter hinting at a Panthers and Blackhawks trade.

    would imagine we would be moving up for the goalie

    I’m glad Stan isn’t going to triple down on stupid. It took two goalies playing at a top level to get us 12th. I’m really pissed we beat Edmonton now that it’s a clear rebuild.

    curious how big of a rebuild is needed... at what point to do they consider cashing in on 19 and 88.

    As much as I like Saad what did people expect coming back? He's probably a 2nd or 3rd line winger who's overpaid.

    More I think about it, the more I hate this trade. Bowman cannot preside over this rebuild. The hawks pro scouting department sucks and bowman always loses trades where he tries to get NHL players back

    I don't have them yet, I was considering it but I'm only contracted here for 2 more years so it seems like a bad idea to start now, especially with COVID probably ruining one of those seasons
