Blackhawks have more headlines than any other team today! Someone's going to get demoted or already has! ;-)

The Blackhawks are beyond having to prove anything on any one of their roadtrips. They are now in a position where they just need to stay together as a team and get as many points as they can, you know, the fun part.

I can't wait to find out who's going to be tonight's hero.

I keep forgetting that we have heroes out healing. Wiz and Johnson will displace whom, on their return? Can't we keep them all? This is harder than I thought!

When Johnson comes back, I hope to see him paired with Wiz, drop Sopes, and play Walker "Craig Adams" style(healthy scratch until needed).

When our D-men get healthy, I really think they have the talent to be one of the premier defensive cores in the league.

Bryan: With the great goaltending and a healthy group of blueliners you are right. RamRod: It has been a long time since we have a team that is expected to win. We look for victories and not just a great effort, which this team gives anyway. Keep the feet moving boys! GO HAWKS!!!

with only 15 wins, the hawks position in the league has not changed. When taking into account the other teams with 15 wins they are still on the bubble.

Kind of an upgrade, being "on the bubble" with other 15 win teams.

"ONLY 15 wins .. " Are you kidding me?

No upgrade being on the bubble. Last year they finished just out of the playoffs. Nine teams have the same number of wins or better. On the bubble

An upgrade over 2006 and before, that is.

My perception is everything to me, right now, with this team. Record be damned.

With Wisniewski and Aaron Johnson soon to be back the Hawks have an embarrassment of riches with their defensemen. Are there any Marian Hossas available? The Hawks have enough defensive talent to trade for another top forward or center goal scorer. Let's make a deal.

Somewhere in Northern Alberta, near Edmonton I believe there is a brass monkey in distress.
