We all know what happened tonight. It sucks the big one. But I created this thread so we can talk about anything BUT the game to help us get our minds off of it. I can't dwell on it anymore without plummeting into the depths of sadness, and the only way to be pulled out again is by winning a Nat'l Championship.
I will start: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
This just came in from my insider source, and also from the blackhawks blog committed indians. I know that some people might get mad if i post the link to a rival fan page so ill just summarize it. The word is that the blackhawks have agreed to sign former UM and dallas stars goalie marty turco to a 1.5 million dollar deal. ONLY IF neimis arbitration hearing rewarded him with more than 2.5 million, which the hawks will not pay. He got 2.75, and the hawks only have 48 hours to respond following the hearing, so the final decision will be announced very shortly.
I'm not sure what this means for his level of play...but I wish him nothing but the best and congratulate him.
Babcock seems to think that Modano will sign for two years and retire as a Wing....We'll see what happens.
He signed a 1 year, $500,000 contract with the Wings...all that's left is to sign Helm and Abdelkader and our roster should be set (unless Modano is added). they currently have 3,200,000 free in cap space, as per cap geek.
I always get nervous posting as I don't want to be "that guy" that places repetitively redundant things on board. The "Mike as a Red Wing rumors" still abound in the Dallas/Ft Worth area which includes this short article and a nice video of him working out.
And the video...
