Hello, everyone. I don't post here much, but I'm hoping this is okay. A couple of friends and I are going to Nashville tomorrow (!!! Yeah, I procrastinated a little on this) for the Preds/Hawks...

Cabbie talks to pro athletes about girls, basically. Toews, Kane and Seabrook prominently featured. Carey Price with a couple of winners. Time waster for those who think 8pm cannot come soon enough. Not sure if this embed works (Edit: It doesn't. Sorry.), but in case it doesn't, click here.

Pass or Fail: Chicago Tribune's "Chrissy Pronger" Poster (This is how you use Fanshots, I guess.) Anyway. The Chicago Tribune really did put this up (I guess?) and I was wondering what you guys make of it. I'd put up a poll but I guess that's only for FanPosts, and it really is a waste of space to put this up there. Anyway. Thoughts?

BigCSouthside had the idea, so I went ahead and made this "History Will Be Made" parody. iMovie 08 is stupid, for the record--I had a much better experience with the 06 version, if you can believe that. But Apple could not foil my plans, mwahahaha! Crap. Forgot to slow-mo it. Whatevs. I should really sleep. G'night, all.

Hawks' President McDonough gets contract extension

1

Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz has given team President John McDonough a long-term contract as a reward for reinvigorating the once-foundering franchise. Mr. McDonough is in the third year of a five-year contract. The extension runs through 2016, a source said. "(McDonough’s) commitment, insight and guidance have led the organization to record attendance, unprecedented season ticket sales, new sponsorships and partnerships with WGN Radio and WGN-TV," Mr. Wirtz said in a memo Monday to executives of Wirtz Corp., which owns the Blackhawks and other businesses. [...] "Recently we sent a message that we were serious about the future and about winning the Stanley Cup by signing a key group of players to long-term contracts," Mr. Wirtz wrote in the memo. "Having a front office second to none will be critical to that success."

Antti Niemi Starts Tomorrow

+

"(Niemi) earned the opportunity," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "I think he's played well. At one point in the year the competition from behind was something we were looking for. You get stretches when you're playing well and you earn the chance to play. That's why he's playing and it's a good chance for him." So does that mean Huet is no longer the clear No. 1 goaltender? "Nothing's changed in that regard," Quenneville said. "It's just an opportunity for Antti to get the net. He deserved it and we'll see how it goes."

NHL & NHLPA investigating Blackhawks over qualifying offers

+

Cause for panic? This is why none of our RFAs have been signed. Blackhawks made offers to our RFAs, but they may not have filed them properly. If investigation reveals the situation was not remedied correctly, their RFA status could become invalid. Way to fail, Chicago.
