Downie getting crushed. If this video doesn't show for you, please click the link below. After watching a lot of Downie's "highlights" and I use that term loosely I am really surprised he even is at the play level he is on.

With the 7th pick in the 1985 entry draft the New York Rangers selected Ulf Dahlen. Many of us Sharks fans remember Ulf as the guy with the yellow laces on his skates. He was a sort of John Voigt look-a-like, and a talented RW. Ulf Dahlen played 966 career games over 14 seasons in the NHL. He accumulated 301 goals and 354 assists for a total of 655 career points.

Was it when Bob Pulford sent Ed Belfour out of town for Ulf Dahlen, Michal Sykora and Chris Terreri? Or when Pulford "unloaded" Jeremy Roenick on Phoenix for Alex Zhamnov, Mike Mills (not the bass player from R.E.M.) and a draft pick who turned into the immortal Ty Jones? Or was it just one (or all) of the many re-emergences of Pulford from the shadows of the Blackha...

As a continuation of my Braveheart theme vis a vis the Hawks' tilt with Detroit last night, the title is my way of saying: right metaphor, wrong battle. Like the Scots at Falkirk (not Bannockburn), the Hawks fought valiantly, but were outnumbered, and in the end succumbed to a superior foe. Hats off to the Wings. They came out fast and focused and put the Hawks in an im...
As the Hawks' losing string reached seven last night, it's my hope that expectations within Blackhawk Nation are getting a bit more realistic. Yes, there have been moments where this team has been 100% healthy that it's looked like a playoff team. And though the injuries have been ridiculous and crippling of late, they haven't been throughout the season. And injuries d...
Lots to talk about in the wake of last night's 5-2 loss at the hands of the Minnesota Wild, and not much of it good.

Probably about one third of the current roster is composed of guys who should be playing in the AHL, whi...

A Road Map To The Cup

Lost in the recent gush of love and goodwill for new Hawks owner Rocky Wirtz and team president John McDonough is an undeniable, hard fact: If the Blackhawks fail to win a Stanley Cup in the next five years, a lot of people are going to be very disappointed. With the Bulls stuck below .500 and baby-sitting Joakim Noah, the Blackhawk franchise has the opportunity to d...
Has anyone seen Chris Kunitz? Where did the banzai-skating, run everything that moves, open up space for your line mates and fastest player on the ice go? Either the NHL told him to slow down and stop running opponents or someone whispered in his ear and told him he was a finesse-style player and could avoid contact and still be effective. Either way, he is lost and we ...

With last night's 3-1 victory over Calgary, one streak ends, and another is probably beginning. Other than a rash of injuries to key players and the emergence of Pat Kane and Jonathan Toews, that's been the story of the Hawks' season thus far: back-to-back-to-back winning and losing streaks of 4-6 games. Those are the hallmarks of a very young team, and a .500 team, bot...

The Oilers feel they can build from within the system. However, I've been reading "respectable" bloggers in regards to the 3rd line centre void.

"IF" that were to be the case, why did the...

The NHL draft class of 2008 was loaded with potential and filled with stars of the future. For some, it appears the future could be now.

Neither the Flyers nor the Phantoms had much success this weekend. Both teams lost Friday and Saturday.
