Adios, Nick Seeler

On Sunday the Chicago Blackhawks placed veteran defenseman Nick Seeler on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract.

Seeler, 27, was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 3, 2020. He opted to not report to his AHL assignment to begin the new season so the Blackhawks are allowing him to pursue employment elsewhere.

Given the Blackhawks’ organization depth at both the NHL and AHL levels, this makes sense for both parties. There was no future for Seeler in the NHL with Chicago and, if the Blackhawks want to develop the younger players they have in Rockford, he would be wasting a roster spot with the IceHogs.

  1. Who? Seeler who? Is that the guy who did my driveway?

    OK, I’ll be serious … seriously, we better cancel the parade.

  2. Here`s the thing about Jeremy Collition …when he gets fired in Chicago ,he will never coach another game in the N.H.L

    Count your blessings Nick Seeler ,you just got a free ticket out of the most dysfunctional team in hockey .

  3. Funny Eb.

    @Morrison
    Read your posts at end of previous blog.
    Your cool.
    No worries.
    2020 had a lot of people drinking.

  4. Get rid of Seeler @ 27 years old and keep Seabrook,Keith at 60 years old each (based on playing miles)…
    Yea, I know , you can’t trade them due to contracts.
    So make sure you play them Regularly, play them Every shift,every game, & let them play on PP (even when bad)… that’ll get them to warm up to wanting out o here…lol
    GOOOOO HAWKS !!!!!!

  5. PP, I like to keep the peace even though I say thing sometimes people donot like even when I do that its not intentional to them just intentional to whatever I am saying/sense or not. Really its my own Q speak.

    Can update those records if we do worse then expected agasint certain teams/top 10 mid tier bottom 10.

    Also for that I forgot SJ ANA LA will get free wins agasint each other so we do have a chance at 2/3/4 spot.

    Again I really like that 2 spot before ping pong balls.

  6. So you guys know more about this roster of players than I do.

    Nowadays I just watch in amazement when I see what appears to be a soccer team made up of 7-year olds chasing the puck.

    Anyway, #27….I watched him struggle badly in last year’s playoffs.

    Thought he would do some studying of film in the off season, work on his skating and come out chomping at bit this year.

    So what is his story?
    He is lost in space in his own end.

    Is this not the guy that Coach Gilligan had in Rockford?

    Is this not the guy that prompted GM Apple Fall Far From Tree Bowman to trade Jokiharu for Flypaper 92?

    Please clue me in…….

    Good thing Q is wearing a mask tonite.
    We cannot see him chuckling.

  7. 2 1/2 games in and Boqvist looks completely lost. Maybe send him to Rockford and let him get his game in order. Kid looks scared out there.

  8. Boqvist is a train wreck tonight.Get him off the ice.He can’t skate and really does not try real hard

  9. I’m beginning to think you guys are right about Boqvist. Looks lost. Maybe some AHL seasoning would be good for him. Especially under another coach other than the great Colliton, master mentor of young hockey talent. AND what would it have hurt to keep Crow for two more years while Commesso developed? Our goalies suck! Don’t ever expect any of them to be top flight material. We R Screwed. Stan Bowman did this. Now he’s “rebuilding” the team he personally tore down. What the hell is wrong with Rocky! He promoted the guy. Watch. To cover up another stupid move yet to come trying to fix this, he’ll trade off somebody promising again, like Suter or Kurashev or Hagel. DOPE of the year award already to Stan Bowman.

  10. Jeremy coliton is garbage pure and simple the hawks orginization should be ashamed for extending a guy who will not motivate or put players in right opportunity. The hawks under him will be cellar dwellars of the league.

  11. Stan is at major fault but orginization allows bullshit moves like extending coliton and not searching for solutions to the team basically going through the motions and not really giving a crap about outcome of games. Bouqvist may be a mediocre player that can’t do much more than he has showed. Giving plenty of time still hasn’t showed what was expected of him. This Team may be in more trouble than we think.

  12. The little I saw of Nick Seeler I thought he could play. I agree that being released will further his career.

  13. I just can not believe what has happened to once. One of the greatest teams in history. Just a short few years ago. It will be years before we ever have a team or coach like we had. Im sick and embarrassed for our Chicago Blackhawks!!! ?

  15. Who the hell is nick seeler? You people have destroyed a dynasty faster the the Bears did !! You give a extension to a coach that couldn’t win if this was a mighty ducks movie! Excuse me now , but I need to find a puke bag just thinking about this shit show!!
