Hasek is not underpaid

Filed under: Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Ottawa Senators, Salaries — netcrashers @ 8:23 am


Sorry but after missing so many games with groin injuries, its hard to justify why Dominik Hasek should be considered underpaid.

If Havlat can be 3rd in all-star forward votes…

Filed under: All Star Game, Chicago Blackhawks, Vancouver Canucks, Voting — netcrashers @ 8:10 am


… Then surely hockey legend Vancouver Canuck defenseman Rory Fitzpatrick can garner far more votes and solidify his rightful presence in the 2007 NHL All Star Game.

More here on the Havlat article but skip that ’cause who cares about the ‘Hawks (certainly owner Bill Wirtz does not) and go straight here to Vote for Rory.

Blackhawks vs Wild game thread

Filed under: Chicago Blackhawks, Coach, Game Thread, Minnesota Wild, Salaries — netcrashers @ 5:39 pm


Some executive for the Versus network must have lost a bet to broadcast this game tonight. The puck drops at 8 PM EST.

Nail biting time for Denis Savard in his first game as head coach of the Blackhawks. The score is currently 1-1 against the Dallas Stars.

Good luck Savvy.
