No matter how the move was made, no matter how much sense it makes from a salary cap perspective, any time a player with a tenure as long and as successful as Patrick Sharp’s in Chicago is ended, the disappointment is going to linger for more than just a night. Let me take you back to my first memory of Patrick Sharp as a Blackhawks: April 5, 2007. The Blackhawks were approaching ...

Blackhawks firing on all cylinders in Game 2 win over the Wild

The general consensus on my Twitter timeline following the Hawks 4-1 dismantling of the Wild was that Game 2 was the most complete performance we’ve seen out of the Blackhawks this postseason.

In the last few weeks, the Chicago Blackhawks have signed Corey Crawford a 6-year, $36 million extension and Niklas Hjalmarsson a 5-year, $20.4 million extension. The Blackhawks barely have over a million dollars in cap space this season, and at this rate, the team is on pace to be pressing the cap in the years to come.

I was only laying out ideal situation of everything.Troy Brouwer was injured in Tuesday night's game. That doesn't mean those five points weren't true. I believe everything I wrote, but that doesn't mean I can't see reality. I am a huge fan, a ...
