This is incredible, just a year early:

Oof. This entire page of discussion hurts to read, knowing what we know now.

 

Yup, just another story of Andrew Ladd letting down another city with his poor leadership. Good thing that Winnipeg had the right mind to dump the loser. What a waste.

You can't go wrong with the classics. Just ask Lindsay from Accounts Payable.

 

It sucks to see Dano shipped off, because he's 20, has a high ceiling, and had a tough start to this season. But it's clear that Quenneville had made up his mind on him, so, hey, might as well get something.

 

Now to get a defenseman by Monday, because right now the Hawks' blueline is Keith and Hjalmarsson and SWEET JESUS EVERLOVING :censored: NO and that probably won't hold up in the playoffs.

 

1.  Very sad to see Dano go.  That was a very big piece of the Saad trade, arguably the one that made the Blackhawks "win" the deal, but his timeline is too long for what the Blackhawks are doing right now:  Winning tons of trophies.  I also kind of get the gist Bowman did it to prevent the Ducks or any other western conf. team from getting him.  

 

2.  Maybe Teuvo isn't safe after all.

JEEZ I read my old posts and cringe every time. 

 

 

 

 

I knew Qstache wouldn't take to Dano. Creativity is only allowed if you're from North America. 

 

Dano is easily my favorite CBJ prospect of the last 10 years. I desperately want him back.

Unfortunately the Jets and Blue Jackets look like sellers...

I wouldn't worry much. The Hawks have a way of making these guys look like stars and with the perennial chokers pretty firmly in the hunt (Sharks, Blues, Preds), I think a trip back to the conference finals isn't as difficult as many of you would think.

We all were laughing so hard during that 7-2 win over the Leafs a couple weeks ago, we didn't pay any attention to the Hawks giving up 40 shots on goal to them. And it wasn't like the team went into a shell and the SOG spiked once they got a comfy lead, either. The Hawks are having their worst season of shot suppression this decade. That could turn out to be a bit of an issue when you're trying to beat Not The Leafs 4 nights out of 7.

And that would make most of the NHL happy. To see the Hawks slowly start to decline away... :D (Of course we all know it's not really going to happen, they'll make the playoffs every year until they've lost Toews, Kane, and Keith...)

Canadiens trade Weise and Fleischmann to Chicago for Phillip Danault and a 2018 2nd rounder. 

 

Your 2016 Stanley Cup favorites, everyone.

We thought the same thing about the Penguins the year they loaded up at the trade deadline.

Yeah, understood. Trade deadline success does not necessarily equate to playoff success. But this is the Blackhawks were talking about. These acquisitions, in my mind, cement them as Stanley Cup favorites ahead of the Caps (which, tbf, I thought Chicago should be considered favorites even before the deadline).

Barring a miracle, it's looking like this years playoffs will be without a single Canadian team.  Chicago will either repeat or the cup will return to Los Angeles.  Might sound like sour grapes but I'm struggling to a find a single reason to care or even watch.  If the postseason is just going to consist of the Hawks and Kings exchanging cups, what is the point?  I don't expect every season to have a miracle run, by a Canadian team, like 2004 but knowing definitively that it can't happen as early as February is just depressing.

Agreed.  As good as the Caps and Stars are (and they're the only other teams that can be considered legitimate Cup contenders imo, maybe the Rangers), the Blackhawks and Kings are still the class of the NHL and I can only see them losing a seven game series to each other.

The Indian Heads dumped Jiri Sekac already, and the Coyotes picked him up. Guess they picked up on the Ducks' sabotage plan.

Did SabresRule come back? How are we already back to resorting to "only the Blackhawks and Kings can win Cups. Woe are we!"?

 

The Kings have obvious flaws, and these moves don't "cement" the Hawks as favorites anymore than they were before. Ladd is a nice complimentary piece, I'll give you that. But Fleishmann and Wiese are more bit players for Quenville's bottom 6 vortex, and Erhoff/Scuderi was an exchange of two not-playing defensemen.

 

These teams CAN be beaten. Relax.
