Morning Links (10/20)


The Avs began the season at home with a 3-0 Scumwash, but since then, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster has run and gunned its way to five straight wins on the road, including a hard-fought win...

Morning Links (10/18)


Phoenix is another one of those teams that doesn't look like much on paper, but has the talent and work ethic to run any team in the league out of the building--especially if that team entertains...

Morning Links (10/13)


Guess who just got back today? Them wild-eyed boys who had been away... Laddie and the Jets limp into the United Center after a rough home opener. Ladd was a -1 wallflower in the 5-1 loss, and...

Morning Links (10/11)


So..I'm an educated man, but someone needs to explain to me why John Scott suited up to play for what amounted to an extended commercial break over the weekend. It's like nobody has the heart...

Who Wants Some? (Morning Links 10/6)


"Huh? Who wants to have a little? You?" In a way, opening with a home-and-home series against the Stars is an extension of the preseason. The Stars have the offensive firepower of a...

Morning Links (10/4)


Perhaps communication breakdown is to blame. It is a truth universally acknowledged that when Quenneville says someone played "ok," he actually means "awful." The numbers should’ve provided...

Morning Links (9/29)


After only two preseason games against the Wings, bile is already cresting the back of my tongue. Although the powerplay traded in its clown shoes for Gene Simmons' Dragon Boots and Kane was...

Kaner in the Middle (Morning Links - 9/27)


So, Kaner might see some time at center, eh? Well, why not? Why not give the good folks a show and allow boy wonder to see the ice from a different perspective when the stakes couldn’t be...

Morning Links (9/22)


"Sticks, they are sick. I cannot score. Skating, I do very much.  Goals, sticks are afraid. I ask Jobu to come, take fear from sticks." The Hawks take on Happy Feet tonight. They will do so...

Morning Links (9/20)


CHICAGO--Many sources have reported a Jeremy Morin sighting over the weekend. The elusive Morin was seen skating with the team Sunday and Monday, but confirmation is still pending from top...

Morning Links (9/15)


And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches toward Chicago to be born? Keep your head up, boyo; in just two days the best game you can name will arrive and we'll know. IT'S...

Morning Links (9/14)


"They growns up, baby. They're growns up and they're growns up and they're growns up." The Baby Hawks finished up the Toronto Rookie Tournament by making quick work of the Lil' Pens, 4-1. Mark...

These ARE the Links You're Looking for (9/13)


Yeah, you could say that the Hawks added some sand this offseason. And in a few short days, we will all get to see the impact for ourselves. Hawks Training Camp begins on Saturday, and as if...

(Mommy, Make It Stop) Morning Links - 9/8


Sorry, I just didn't have another "mourning links" left in me. Somebody, anybody, drop the puck already and put this Twilight Zone offseason behind us. It's T minus nine days until training camp,...

Most Excellent Morning Links (9/6)


Battleship, Clue, Electric Football, and Twister are all fine choices. But if I had to challenge Death to a contest for my immortal soul, I'd go with dome hockey. I have a winger-center-jam slot...

Mourning Links (9/1)


   Wade Belak was found dead yesterday in his Toronto hotel room. In what is becoming an increasingly solemn off-season for the NHL, Belak's passing is the third NHL player to die suddenly in...

Your Mental Morning Links (8/30)


Morning links will drive you crazy. Morning links will drive you mad... Hockeenight keeps Ben Smith in perspective Third Man In podcast confirms that reports of Al Cimaglia's death...

Morning Links (8/25)


Now with 20 percent more Soylent Green...'s Brian Hedger reports that it could be the year of the Rat It's not exactly Crosby's Reebok deal, but Leddy has himself an e...

TUESDAY (8/23 morning links)


All links and no hockey makes Jack a dull boy All links and no hockey makes Jack a dull boy All links and no hockey makes Jack... Sassone expects better start, team chemistry and reports...

Welly, Welly, Welly, Well...


Feed your gullivers these a.m. links, my droogs. Oh Captain, My Captain: Globe and Mail reports Toews is collecting karma and accomplishments The Bleacher Report pencils in the Hawks'...

Mourning Links (8/16)


Attach a black ribbon to your hockey flags today for enforcer Rick Rypien, who was found dead yesterday in Alberta. Rypien recently signed a contract with the Jets, but played all 119 of his NHL...



If you’re reading this, it means you’ve survived the shark attack the Discovery Channel sensationally presented as both inevitable and rarer than a lightning strike over the weekend. For some...

Staying Handsome, Chicago


  Ok, granted: Shooter’s five-year, 29.5 million dollar deal doesn’t exactly scream hometown discount. Then again, if the off-season FA frenzy and Weber’s arbitration award represent market trends,...
