I am a rare Chicago Blackhawks fan from Canada, one might describe me as a hockey connoisseur and a solid checking line centre to your local rec hockey team. I once lived in a town of 500 people and now work in the hockey mecca that is Toronto. I work in the wonderful world of Advertising and these opinions are one of my own and not of my company - don't get it twisted.

Hawks Up A Creek Without A Seabrook

Hawks Up A Creek Without A Seabrook

Unfortunately, Blackhawks fans, you have no one to be angry with than your beloved players you’ve backed all year. Mr. [...]

Better Than Christmas, It’s the Playoffs!

Better Than Christmas, It’s the Playoffs!

St. Louis claimed game #1 on Thursday night in their own barn. We laughed, we cried and we were extremely tired the next day. This marathon ended in triple overtime with the Blues prevailing on an Alex Steen goal. A real crotch-grab moment for Hawks fans after Toews & Co. were looking to pull off [...]

The Blackhawks take on the Wild tonight. They will look to get out of their slump and back on track as they head down the final stretch. Crawford in net for the good guys, with Bryzgalov at the other end. This will be the 4th goalie used against the Hawks – Harding, Backstrom and Kuemper [...]

Coaching Matters

Coaching Matters

  The Hawks bit the dust again versus the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. They just flat out didn’t play well. They haven’t been playing well for a while now. After the Olympics, I assumed there may be some fatigue. No excuses now, as with just a few weeks away, the #blackhawks are performing about [...]

The Stars Align in Chicago

The Stars Align in Chicago

Sure, the Dallas Stars are coming into town tonight. They will be a hungry team and have the insane offensive duo of Seguin/Benn (Jamie, that is). These are not the stars I speak of though.

New & Improved BLOG and BLACKHAWKS

It’s been a Canadian Gold Medal, a Brandon Pirri trade and a Patrick Kane injury since I last blogged. Well those high/low-lights, among others, have been analyzed and over-analyzed by fans over the past weeks as the Blackhawks head into the playoffs. A lot of has happened but I won’t focus too much on the [...]

Team Canada Debate

Team Canada Debate

Well the moment we’d all been waiting for has come and gone. The debate is over…. or is it? Hopefully you’ve had time to digest Steve Yzerman’s Team Canada selections better than that Cronut Burger you had this summer at the CNE. There were limited whispers as Yzerman fumbled his way through his rationale as [...]

With the impending announcement of the Team Canada Olympic Men’s Hockey Team, I thought I’d follow suit and post my Team Canada Olympic team like every other blogger. I originally wanted to take another angle and focus more on [...]

The Sweet Just Isn’t as Sweet without the Sour

The Sweet Just Isn’t as Sweet without the Sour

  The Chicago Blackhawks received a hard slap of reality on Saturday night in Toronto. The Leafs came out with a strong effort and the lifeless Hawks could not be bothered to pushback and weather the storm. A storm outside the building didn’t stop Leafs Nation getting to this Original 6 matchup. This was Chicago’s [...]

11/3/13: Update on a Lazy Sunday. So what I don’t want to write another blog. Lay off me, back-to-back’s are HARD! The Hawks had a nice win yesterday vs. the Winnipeg Froliks. It was almost embarrassing to watch if you put yourself in the skates of the players you used to love like Ladd, Big [...]

Rockford… Blackhawks? And Blackhawks Blackhawks.

Rockford… Blackhawks? And Blackhawks Blackhawks.

First off, the Blackhawks took to the sunny South to play the Panthers and Lightning. The Panthers gave the Hawks a scare but they prevailed in a shootout. Tampa Bay capitalized on a sloppy Hawks play but it was a back and forth affair which ended up in the in a showdown shootout which ended [...]

Choose Your Storyline: Hawks vs. Leafs

Choose Your Storyline: Hawks vs. Leafs

For this particular blogger, tonight’s game between the Leafs and Hawks will be a tense one. The storylines run deeper than most due to the fact that I live in Leafs’ Nation. A “must win” from a personal level because when you live in Leafs-Land and work for a sports TV station for 5 years, [...]

Who Gets More?

Who Gets More?

  It feels like forever ago when the Hawks won the Cup/played their first regular reason game in 2013. Sure it’s only been 3 days in between games but with all the excitement of the start of this NHL season, it was a tease to have them play opening day and then not until Saturday. [...]
