Hey guys, I usually only hang around on The Crawfish Boxes (Houston Astros page), but I figured I should give this site a go too!
As of a few minutes ago, the lockout is OFFICIALLY over. This gives one week of preseason before the first game will be played against the Kings next Saturday at 2PMCT. Will there be any moves made by the Blackhawks?
I've been wanting an actual second line center for awhile, I don't like the idea of Kane being a center and Bolland is a 3rd liner to me. Is it possible a move can be made? This is the move I was expecting the most out of the front office last Summer but it never happened.
Is Corey Crawford going to be #1? Personally I would be absolutely stunned if something happened in the next week that says otherwise. But if he starts the season out poorly, I'd expect a trade to occur.
On a separate note, I don't know if many of you have thought about this, but unless Bollig goes to Rockford, we are going to have Carcillo and Bollig both on the NHL team. Not too long ago, this team wasn't all that tough in my opinion. But now imagine both of these guys out there. It looks like we are going to see plenty of fights this year.
By the way, since I'm new here, I'll post my Twitter. @astrosjake.. if you like to talk hockey I'll definitely follow back!
