  1. Completely off point, but thumbs down to the Hawks brass for bad mouthing Tuevo’s work ethic and training on the way outa town. Its a bad look for the organization I love. This isnt the PR diaster that the Hawks reacted poorly too thst Kane generated last offseason but still a bad look.

    Lets hope this org can get their shit together. After winning the cup this team has looked and acted poorly for most of the last calendar yr.

  2. Further….only 3 of their last 20 games are against the central
    and 11 of their last 20 are EC teams……WTF

  3. 9 of the last 15 games on the road. For a 2016-17 Blackhawks team where simply making the playoffs cannot be assumed. This is a new era. A rebuilding on the fly era. I remain staunchly the the corner of Stan Bowman. He has one helluva lot of work ahead of himself the next couple of seasons.

    Got a chuckle on the Malkin rumors to Chicago. Sure, why not. He only costs $9.5 M per season and we are oozing with cap room. I guess the assumption behind this hair-brained rumor is that Kane or Toews would be sent packing to Pittsburgh.

  4. Those rumors make absolutely zero sense. Hawks front office wouldn’t make this move if Toews or Kane had to be included as a part of the package, and for cap reasons they would almost certainly need to be…. so, no, so so so stupid.

    Would love it though!! lol

  5. Nobody on the Hawks bad mouthed Teuvo outright. This was from an editorial piece from jay Zawaski a couple days ago. Essentially it was just taking Quenneville’s assessment after the season (TT needs to be more consistent), and his countryman Kimmo’s assessment from last year (TT needs to work out and get stronger, not play golf all summer), I have a hard time finding fault with either of those assessments. He may have heard whispers Hawks brass was pissed he went home again instead of training here. Nothing outright by any Hawks’ suit. Obviously he didn’t fetch a huge ransom, so take that for what it is, he is still viewed as a project when it seems the fans and coaching staff were looking for him to take a step up last year. He wilted when handed his opportunity, the Hawks need cap room and Bickell out of town, so now he’s someone else’s project.

  6. The article itself is not that bad. His countryman’s comments to the Canadian press, if true, are fairly telling. He’s a young guy but didn’t seem to be progressing much and perhaps they just weren’t willing to wait in this current financial scenario, simple as that. Might be a star in the league someday but the Blackhawks have big issues to address now. Seems like a good kid all in all and the move might spur him on to bigger and better things personally.
    I like the new players that have been signed, and I wonder what that means for guys like Desjardins and Mashinter (sorry Mashinter haters for listing him alongside Desi, but I think you know what I mean). They aren’t huge cap hits but they may be pushed out of the way come final roster time.

  7. Nick, you hit it right on the head. The other teams scouted him, watched tape on him, and saw him play. They clearly saw what we saw and more. There are issues with Teuvo despite the love fest on here for him.
