Now I may come to regret this one in due time, especially if Corey Crawford makes his way back to the crease and saves the day.

But man...these guys look terrible to start the year. Toews and Kane are doing their damndest to try and keep them afloat, and Debrincat is quite the find, but...can someone put an APB out for Brandon Saad? No idea why this guy's game has just completely imploded the last 2-3 seasons. Columbus may end up with nothing at the end of this season and still win that trade because they dumped an unproductive player earning big $$$.

They picked up some solid forwards in Debrincat and Schmaltz, but the defence got old in a hurry. Seabrook is done and Keith can't do it on his own anymore. Without Crawford to make them look good, this defence is as bad as it gets in the league.

I thought Rutta was supposed to be good but there were some really bad blown coverages last night that had me shaking my head.

It can't be coincidence that Chicago went with defensemen with their two first rounders in this year's draft. I imagine they want Boqvist in the NHL no later than next season.

Seabrook is an amnesty buyout, no question. Just ridiculous how easy they could have avoided making such a dumb mistake, and made it anyway.

Apparently Mark Lazerus is reporting the Hawks will be altering their uniforms for 2019-20. The new Addidas jerseys came with new collars, which have been referred to as the "Veruca Salt" collars, and have been reviled by the fans since their introduction.

I'm astounded a bunch of highly-paid designers, focus groups, and other various team representatives, did not catch this.

And moreover, I get the desire to try and tweak uniform designs, but FFS, why do they keep messing with the collar!? Just make a goddamn v-neck and be done with it.

Craw hurt again and Ward has been lousy as a fallback. This team is done, and the Schmaltz for Strome trade is one I'll never get.

I think they just didn't want to pay Schmaltz what he was asking for. But I think Bowman is playing out the string at this point...it's only a matter of time before he gets the axe.

Who are you going to pay? They've been bloodletting for so long the taps are dry. Are they really going to clear the decks so they can drop 10M on Panarin? 20M on him and Bob?

Can they find takers for Murphy, Anisimov and Saad?
