    Good to see. Just stay healthy drake. No more head injuries please

    2 months with lingering symptoms.With the style of play that he plays with and his size,I dont know how long he will be available.Seems like a quality guy all the way around.Hope he does not have to deal with this again.

    If some of the players had his heart and desire this team would be playoff bound. This kid gives you all he has just don’t know how long he will last

    Feel bad for this guy. I remember bug buff roughing him up pretty good. It was his dream to play for the Blackhawks right? Glad he got it and hope he stays healthy.

    Imagine if Nylander played as hard as this kid? We all love this kid’s effort and team first mentality. I think my favorite line last year was when Caggs played with Towes and Kane. He made things happen and kept the puck in to give 88 and 19 more chances. Love this kid!

    One more thing…I would love to give Stan credit for getting Cagguila in a trade w/Edmonton for Brandon Manning. But, signing Manning in the first place just evens that trade out. Who signs Manning? He is a worthless hockey player. Where is he playing now? It’s moves like this that piss me off. Are you telling me that there were not about 100 better defensemen available for the money we gave Brandon Manning? And that my friend is another reason why Stan must be fired.

    Good to see him back

  • January 9, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    I’ve just about reached a point, where it’s like yeah for you (Stan) undoing something dumb you did.

    Tommy Ivan:
    Remember, the Baby Bowman sign Ed Manning for 2 million.
    He also re-upped Rutta for the same price.

    You are right when you ask ‘ Who does that’?

    4 million for a #6 d-man in Tampa and a d-man who is out of hockey.

    No worries on Laviolette conversation.
    You want the finite elements of his style.
    Me? I don’t care about the finite elements.
    If he puts them out there in Pink helmets and they win, I am good with that.
    He wins. That is what I want. Wins and Chalices

  • January 9, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    Manning. Rutta. Do a shot.

    Drake! Nice guy too small and would not maker a playoff roster in ther NHL! That’s what we have!
    And again, this coach has 88 playing with 22 and 92? This is a joke! Hampers his stars to play with AHLers!
    Toews stuck with 8 and 47!!! And Dcat playing with who?
    They are simply boring to watch beacuse apart from 88, 19, 12 and maybe 92, everyone is a dump and chase AHL player!
    8 19 88
    12 77 92
    The rest is garbage anyway!

  • January 9, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    KAMPF as your top 3 centers with Strome OUT? So JC decides to put DACH on his opposite side left wing? He’s a CENTER!!!! And DCAT is moved to right wing? PETER LAVIOLETTE PLEASE!!! This coach is simply a jerk! The rookie has played everywhere except goalie or defence. Leave him at center!
    When will Toews and Kane speak out publically on this coach! Load up top 2 lines !
    What fools; JC and Bowman!

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:00 pm

    Talk about roster depth Mr. Bowman?

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    Cannot think of a seasoned NHL coach who would put together lines like that.

    But yet this coach retains his position because if he gets fired, the guy who fired Q to hire him would get the axe too

    Coach C is a deer in the headlights of the Stan Bowman Trainwreck of a hockey team.

    As long as that deer is alive, Bowman has a job.

    How Rocky cannot take action over his marketing genius McDonough has me wondering if Rocky, who must be in his 70’s, is losing his edge.

    Any thoughts on this point?

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    3-0 already. Just So good seeing Koekoek out there….

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    I may be out there somewhere but I wonder if Jamal Mayers has any interest in coaching.He still has that edge and no nonsense look in his eyes.His analysis of this teams defensive apathy and lack of urgency is dead on.

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    Anyone wanna place bets this team goes on a 4-5 game winless streak?

    How many of those have we seen since Q got fired for the very same thing?

    I lost count.

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    Patience Hull.Ian Mitchell is on his way.Now about the Center situation,I have been saying since the start of the season that this team does not have a #1 or #2 Center .19s game has 3rd line center written all over it.

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Team is lifeless. No jump. JC will be gone and to save a little face Marc Crawford will finish the season. Don’t like Laviolette but bring him in.

    Manning, remember he was a tank ufa. These guys were added in those summers as ‘tank’ ufas that was vital in us getting a top 5 skill draft player the last 2 drafts.

    Different approach this summer, with 5 good ufa players and an elite top 5 goalie. To get return in picks/prospects, and maybe get the same bonus of another top 5 skill draft player.

    Keep em coming.

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Best thing that could happen for us, is

    -keep the coaches and gm and crews
    -which gets us another top 5 skill draft player
    -trade players at deadline to get good returns/add to trade to make it worth while
    – do not do the Wirtz reset until were locked in for top 5 pick again

    41-41 is what we do this yr, ‘playing in 5050% of the games (on average)
    41-41 is not top 4 pick, its 5th-8th pick, so draft lottery for a top 2 pick.

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Jim, as you know I have been saying forever Bowman is a fraud! And arrogant as well. He thought he could get a 2nd div. Swedish defensive coach to lead a 3 time cup champion? You want to get rid of a Hall of fame coach, you need a real coach! Trotz, Laviolette….someone who knows offence, who is respected by the winners! This coach has them playing grinding out hockey with AHLers! While Toews and Kane wonder whta the Hell can they do!!!How dumb is this coach!
    How dumb is this GM? He drafts 4 dmen the last 2 seasons, disregarding the forward position which is where he guttewd the team mostly. Then goes out and gets 2 vets on D worth a mint with long term contracts plus pays the backup goalie $5million! Hawks have the most expensive back end in the entire league! Then he gives 2 Hall of Famers 19 & 88 players like 92, 95, 36, 15, 8, 91, 64, 22!!!!! If you get rid of Anisimov then you need a center while DACH develops! JOKE! DISASTER! These guys deserve to get booted out. Again, this is all on the fraud that Bowman is and has always been. While he signed the slow skating old Carpenter to that cash for 4th line duty, DALE TALLON signs speed skater Acciari from Boston!!! I mean they are clueless and their staff top to bottom, includinf Mark Bernard in Rockford is laughable. They have not one forward prospect apart from Dach that they’ve drafted the last 3-4 years considered a real prospect. Rangers have rebuilt in less than 2 years and have tons of prospects! Remember, HAWKS have not made playoffs in 2 seasons which means where are the prospects. NONE up front! Everyone is a free agent unwanted player from another organization!

  • January 9, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    Remember when Rocky would walk around the lobby of the United Center talking to fans and receiving adulation for the great job he had orchestrated with dumping Tallon and hiring his new gm Stanley. Everything went along famously as long as he did everything Mcdonot told him. How was he to know that he had fired the one guy who should have been promoted, to hockey operations president , instead of being shown the door. im sure Rockey would change things if he could With Bowman in charge the Hawks became a house of cards.

  • January 9, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    They have a dead roster with no prospects up front drafted by this GM. NONE!

  • January 9, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Nice guy Drake but who cares about his return, he’s an AHL player. I hope after the 2nd period Kane stood up with Toews and told the GEEK COACH to pack your bags and get out of the building!

  • January 9, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Wow, not too long ago Coach Q would talk during the game on ESPN with Pierre McGuire about ” we need to skate, improve out piuck possession and attack with speed”…. TONIGHT? Brooksie just agreed with Pat Foley, the new Hawks (as discussed during the brilliant off season with brain storming staff), the news Hawks need to chip and chase….dump and play dumb hockey! Wow! Thx Bowman and JC!

  • January 9, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    How charged up where Kane and Toews finally playing together in the 3rd period?
    Butr now Pikka Renne has more goals than Quenneville and just as many as SIKURA Mr. Bowman! Pretty funny! Calling Mr. Laviolette please!!!!

  • January 9, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Forget Laviolette this year.
    The guy will take time away from the game, then surface when a new season starts in the Fall.

    Sound like a coach we know?

    Laviolette will win again. He knows how.

    Coach C may not before he and Baby Bow get the axe.

    Alpo Suhonen called. He is available.

  • January 9, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    A note on Bowman:
    He proved he can tweak a caliber team and dance along the edges of a Salary Cap to maintain a winner built by someone else.

    He had also proven he is clueless when trying to build a caliber winner from ground up.

    For the former he should be lauded.

    For the latter he should be fired.

  • January 10, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Thank goodness HULL65 does not work for the Hawks, we have have what ?? 5 skaters per game because NOBODY is good enough for this guy. Kampf and Kubalik have been some of the best players on the ice. Kubalik is # 2 in rookie goal scoring and HULL65 wants him gone…..talk about stupidity.
