He was increasingly crazy in his later years....had some pretty awful takes. I don't claim to remember much of him when he was in his heyday though.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Now that I'm reading up on it, Podkolzin *can't* come over for 2 years. You can't even negotiate with him, he's full SKA property. And he could always choose to stay there rather than take an NHL ELC after those two years. That'd give me a long pause. You could take Bynam as a potential No. 1 D (al...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

currently on hfboards looking at every team forum's reaction the moment the blackhawks moved up I'm particularly enjoying the fate of the LA Kings, who tanked *hard* and had their fans really embracing it, only to drop all the way from 2nd to 5th. The trade off is the Lakers will win the lottery an...

I wonder what will happen the SeatGeek Stadium (Toyota Park) after the Fire move. Town is still in a ton of debt and its probably not a great concert venue. Would they just tear it down?

That is an interesting question....if you could choose would you take: 1) exactly whats happened and exactly where we are 2) 100 win juggernauts the last 4 seasons and be much better set up to win this year and beyond, but have fallen short of winning it all each year so far (so the opportunity is a...

Re: Bullpen shakeup, Carl's Jr optioned to Iowa

That’s not surprising at all. The only thing surprising is that it didn’t happen before yesterday’s game. He has sucked in every appearance, struggles to throw strikes, appears to have shot confidence, and was just forced to change his delivery overnight. No matter what you think of Carl long term, ...

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

The lack of developing prospects (especially pitchers) is what kills me. When Theo came aboard he said all the right things about creating the "Cub Way" or whatever its called. Overhauling the development system from the top down, creating consistency across all levels, writing a literal m...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

At this point let Hoyer or McLeod take over. Theo did exactly what they brought him here to do, but I can certainly see a sense of complacency setting in after putting together a core that has been that good for the last 4 years. His complementary moves to fill out the roster have been disasters in...
