Stop being so shy and take your nipple out guys. If I’m the director of the Special Olympics I’m officially rescinding these plunges. Can’t cheapen it for the rest of us.

 

 

 

Looking real good Gaga.

Big move for the Blackhawks. Vermette was the best rental player on the market and the Blackhawks got their guy. Versatile player. He can play win or center and can play in all situations. Complete, 200 foot type guy that Coach Q and the Hawks love. I’d love to see him centering a line with Saad and Versteeg on the wings.

Pretty steep price for Vermette considering he’s a rental, but the Kings set the market when they gave up basically the same package for Sekera earlier in the week. Dahlbeck is a nice player and a guy who seemed to be a favorite of a lot of the hockey twitter eggs for whatever reason. Truth is that the Hawks have a pretty deep prospect pool on defense with Johns, Pokka, among others, and TVR already with the varsity. The first round pick is tough to swallow, but the Hawks have some pressure to win now before the contract extensions of Toews and Kane kick in and the team is forced to shed some players who have been important to this run.

Have to tip your cap to Stan Bowman. The way the team had been playing, the noise on the outside, and Kane going down it would have been very easy to just go with the status quo and ride it out. Instead he got aggressive and added the best forward rental and arguably the best defenseman rental. The Hawks now have the juice to get out of their division and hopefully stay in the dance long enough for Kane to come back. Then who knows what can happen. Things are looking up in Chicago.

Viva La Hawks,

Jamal Mayers Addresses The Blackhawks Locker Room Rumors

  It’s crazy that Jamal Mayers had to even dig into stories like this because anyone with a brain should have known that these rumors of Sharp fucking everyone’s wife or girlfriend on the team were outrageous.

It’s crazy that Jamal Mayers had to even dig into stories like this because anyone with a brain should have known that these rumors of Sharp fucking everyone’s wife or girlfriend on the team were outrageous. Nobody thinks these guys are choir boys, but they also aren’t sociopaths. Everyone is trying to make Patrick Sharp into some kind of Don Draper type character who is basically a sex addict. I don’t know what is going on in Sharp’s personal life, but neither does anyone else on the internet. I know Dan Bernstein made comment of “untidy personal lives” story and then everything grew and grew from there. These rumors have gone off the rails and it’s why I’ve been telling people to turn their brains on.

As far as trade rumors…turn your brains on again. I don’t know if Sharp is going to get traded. It seems unlikely to trade a proven playoff performer mid-season, but I suppose anything is possible. Some of the trade destinations being floated just don’t make any sense. Washington in particular. Detroit and Montreal don’t make much sense either. Teams need to be able to afford Sharp themselves and also send back something that fits the Hawks’ roster.

So basically there’s a lot of internet nonsense out there from both the mainstream and the fringe. Pretty good rule is that if you don’t hear it from Bob McKenzie or Darren Dreger then it’s probably loaded with bullshit.

Chris Sale Fractures Foot, Out 3 Weeks

This is seriously a joke at this point.  Like, this is some Final Destination type shit.  Unloading something from his truck?  You fucking kidding me?

After Rose and Kane went down earlier this week, everyone was joking about how bad things always happen in 3s.  Well here you go.  Chris Sale breaks his foot, is out 3 weeks.  I’ll be monitoring the situation carefully over the course of the day, and by monitor closely I mean drinking until I get blackout drunk and acting like this last week in Chicago sports never happened.

*Spin Zone*

No, it’s never good when your teams’ best player gets hurt.  Not in the slightest.  But maybe, just maybe, this will help counteract the early season arm soreness he’s experienced the last two years?  Obviously he’s not going to be throwing/planting for the next few weeks, so come April he’ll be all the more fresh.  And a pitcher of Chris Sale’s caliber doesn’t need an entire 6 weeks of Spring Training to prepare for the start of the season.  He’ll be just fine with the 3 weeks he has to work after his foot heals.  Or so I hope.

That’s a straight up DENT! That’s like 500 bucks at the auto body shop easy. What the hell is Russell Westbrook’s face made out of? Is he even a human being? The dude dented his face. How is that even possible? I’m pretty sure if I got kneed hard enough to put a dent in my skull my entire face would just disintegrate. No chance my bones are strong enough to take a dent and keep on going.

 

 

Live look at Russell Westbrook’s X-Ray

Blackhawks Trade Draft Picks To Flyers For Kimmo Timonen

  And there was the Blackhawks trade they were working on all day: Kimmo Timonen to the Hawks from the Flyers — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 28, 2015     We’ve been hearing that the Blackhawks were “close” to a deal since last night and the first trade finally went down and it’s a pretty [...]

Kimmo Timonen #44 of the Philadelphia Flyers holds his hands up

 

 

 

We’ve been hearing that the Blackhawks were “close” to a deal since last night and the first trade finally went down and it’s a pretty good one. The Blackhawks needed an extra defenseman and it’s not every day that you can add one as good as Kimmo Timonen.

 

Now, Kimmo Timonen is available for a reason. 1) He’s going to be 40 years old. 2) He hasn’t played all year because he had blood clots in his lungs and was only recently medically cleared to return to practice. With that said, Kimmo can absolutely help this team. The Blackhawks have been shuffling defensemen in and out of the lineup. Rozsival, Erixon, Rundblad, Cumiskey, Clendenning, Dahlbeck, etc.  Now the Blackhawks have a veteran defenseman to add to the 3rd pair next to TVR when he returns(next week). Timonen has been through the playoff wars. The guy is nails and will be a great locker room presence.

Going into the playoffs with Keith, Seabrook, Oduya(went on IR tonight, but should be back in plenty of time), Hjalmarsson, TVR, and Timonen is a really strong group. And if for whatever reason it doesn’t work out, you still have Rundblad, Roszival, Cumiskey(who I have really liked in this recent call up). That’s 9 NHL defenseman. That’s as deep as probably any team in the league with 3 high end guys leading the way.

The trade was straight up. No salary retained. According to NHLnumbers,com Timonen carries a $2M cap hit which means the Hawks still have some money to play with before the Monday deadline. I have my heart set on Vermette.

It’s been a rough week, but you can never count this group out. Viva La Hawks, Viva Stan Bowman.
