Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

I think the way this plays out for the Hawks assuming they don't fall to 4th in the Central is a path to the Cup of STL-NSH-LA-Eastern team. Like last year only home ice in the 2nd round. I think Dallas takes the Central but loses to Nashville in the 1st Rd. As for expansion, I think if Hossa were t...

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

.but if we fail to win a cup because of the blue line, I will have to wonder why the Hawks made multiple 'mortgaging the future to win now" type of trades for rentals and not put a priority on defense. I would hope that Stan mortgages the future to win now each and every year Toews and Kane ar...

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

Plus he took slightly less money than two other teams to play for the Hawks. The Blues were one of the teams he turned down. Also, Bob McKenzie mentioned the Hawks might be in on bringing Ladd back. I wonder what the price would be for a rental? Hartman? Don't think Bowman want's to part with a 2016...

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

Someone at HF boards showed what the standings would have looked like last year with a 3-2-1 point system. Not a whole lot of difference except the LA Kings would have made the playoffs

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

My ideal state: 60 minutes of hockey, winner gets 2 points, loser gets 0. If tied after 60, 5 minutes of 3-on-3, winner gets 2 points, loser gets 0. If tied after OT, its a tie and both teams get a point. All that does is make a gimmick which 3-3 really is even more important than it should be. The...

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

I don't like the idea of loser points. I've heard people theorize that the reason they don't go with the 3-2-1 system is that they don't want to inflate the number of points a team can win in a season. It would be interesting to see how that would affect the standings. The correct term is "win...

i still don't understand why the bookmakers are so high on SF. they opened the offseason as the WS favorites, IIRC. do they think the betting public is gonna buy into the even numbered year "trend" THAT much? Could be part of it. In hockey, the Kings have been bet up in even years while t...

Woo hoo. I've never seen a team I root for host an all star game. Was too young for Bulls in 88, Cubs in 90, Hawks in 91. By 2020, the Cubs will have hosted 1 ASG in the previous 58 years How many years in the future do they have sites announced for so far? I think 2020 would be about right for the...

Only one team is higher the Giants at 90.

As was said I think it will get bet up to 91 or so.

Worst super bowl ever or worst football game that I watched in its entirety? I'm having trouble deciding.

I just want the Bears to win another SB so people can stop talking about the 85 Bears. It was the first Bears team I watched, and I thought that team should have won more than one, that's the biggest problem I have with them.
