you feel me, dog?
Possible, but I doubt it. Think the brass is going to give him some time (as in at least another season (when more of the prized D prospects arrive). Then again, if they truly believe the Hawks are a playoff team...if the Blackhawks are around or near last place in the West by New Year's Day, maybe StanBo gets canned?
Nice little streak going here. Playing well and getting some solid goaltending. They aren't the same team they were just a couple of years ago, but there is still talent on this team.Playing well of late. Forsling and Murphy have had a big impact. Dahlstrom has been good. The forwards are playing better defensively and the bottom 6 is no longer a black hole. Nice game from Delia. Thinking that Manning, Kunitz and Kruger will be gone soon.
There is definitely talent. I was a tank commander, but this is a lot better. JC's system is getting traction (#NoImprovements). What's most encouraging is the pool of high end prospects that are going to be on the team starting next season. Our WJC kids are tearing it up. Delia looks like he may be a #1 (operative word: may). A homegrown, young (cheap) #1 would be monumental. Bowman is sitting on a huge pile of dough for FA (Panarin or Stone). The Strome trade is looking very good. Hawks could easily be a legit playoff team next season.Nice little streak going here. Playing well and getting some solid goaltending.

I'm so ready for Bowman to be gone. Yes he was an above average GM during the cup window, but retreads like Kruger were some of the more annoying things he did later on. I get when the well runs out internally, and cap space is extremely tight, you do what you can, but this team should've been in full rebuild mode when Crawford got hurt last year and neither backup looked ready to fill his still underratedly large shoes.Krüger is next, I imagine.
