Anyone besides myself and Steve8 give a crap?

There is no reason to expect anything great (or even good) from the Blackhawks this season. They have Patrick Kane, an aging Duncan Keith, and that’s about it. I had hopes for a surgically repaired Brent Seabrook to contribute on the back end, but he’s currently “unfit to play”. Captain is out with an undisclosed issue. We traded a goalie we should have extended and let the guy who backstopped two championships go unsigned and then he retired. The youngsters will have ample opportunity to show what they can do.

This season’s division setup should create some fierce rivalries with teams playing each other 8 times in a shortened campaign . Looking forward to watching games starting tomorrow.

Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook hung the skates up today after a 15-year career that included an Olympic gold medal and three Stanley Cups. All 1,100+ regular season games were with Chicago, who drafted him when they were a laughingstock of a franchise. He tried fixing himself early last year with surgeries on a shoulder and both hips in the span of about a month, but the body ultimately said no. Mad respect for this warrior, leader and great playoff performer. I suspect down the road the team will do a joint retirement of number 7 for him and Chris Chelios, like they did with number 3 for Pierre Pilote and Keith Magnuson.  What a great career.
