    Strange they would make Duncan Keith aka ‘The Cancer’ an Assistant Captain

    The cancer has worn that ‘A’ since they put the ‘C’ on Toews.

    Still waiting for cancer evidence from those who say he is one…………

    Good choices with Toews and Seabrook out, all leaders to the youngsters. Nobody ready to take on Keith’s role on roster, let him go out there and weather the storm when needed, he can still get it done for now. Don’t want send young guys out there getting shell shocked, ruin their confidence right now. Another year or so his role needs to be reduced obviously.

    Just to be clear – I never called Keith a cancer. I have said he and Toews have expressed displeasure with management decisions in the past which I don’t think is good for the team but falls way short of being a cancer. I have never seen Toews or Keith allow their displeasure with management decisions to affect their play on the ice which is always maximum effort of what they can give that particular game.

    My issue with Toews and Keith speaking out against management is that they are the leaders on the team so by openly showing their displeasure they are influencing their teammates with that negativity which is not a good thing for the team. Whether they are right or wrong with their criticism it is the manner in which they air their grievance out in the open that I think is wrong and harmful to the team.

    But, I’m a proponent of hierarchical command structure which is not something everyone agrees with so I’m most likely the oddball on this. To me, a subordinate’s role is to follow commands and only offer their opinion when they’re asked for it. That doesn’t seem to go over very well in the culture of the day.

    Billy Reay isn’t funny, can’t spell and clearly has issues.

    Tab – I’m not hear to defend anyone, but Billy Reay has a valid point about Keith’s positioning on that goal. I definitely don’t understand why we have a Dman chasing players out to the top of the circle or further, but then I am not privvy to what the defensive scheme and responsibilities are either. If JC wants Dmen chasing that far and leaving the front of our net open, well, then you get what you deserve. On the other hand, if that’s not the case, then Billy has a point worth being heard.

    I struggle to understand what type of defense we play as I watch our players in the defensive zone. The only thing I know for certain: The safest 6 feet of ice on the rink are the 6 feet immediately in front of our goaltender. Only damage ever done to opposing players located there is friendly fire from their teammate’s shots.

    Enough with the “Keith Cancer” routine please. He’s a HOF who’s earned every dollar of that contract.

    Silent that is exactly what Collitons system requires, dmen chasing their players all ovrr d zone and forwards guarding the slot. If you watch Point goal, Kubalik was watching Point, Boqvist was watching his man, Kubalik switched off, leaving Point to Boqvists man, causing confusion and leading to Point being left alone in slot. Who s fault, Kubalik, Boqvist or system.

    Didn’t I see DeBrincat wearing A on his jersey last game against Dallas ?

    Jonathan Toews will be back healthy and strong next season but ever since Justin Williams and Mike Fisher retired from hockey and Brent Seabrook and Dan Girardi Ryan Callahan Marian Hossa Patrick Sharp but the young players coming over from Rockford have themselves a new nhl experience but maybe Patrick Kane would wear the Letter “C” on his sweater we don’t know for sure how Toews health and medical issue with symptoms of illness Toews isn’t thinking about retirement of illness which isn’t serious but Toews played 14 seasons in Chicago and won 3 cups and won conn smythe trophy and selke trophy and 2 gold medals
