It appears coach Joel Quenneville is using the Blackhawks' game Sunday against the Rangers to send a bit of a message. Bryan Bickell has been healthy scratched to make room for Teuvo Teravainen, giving the veteran some time in the press box to hopefully get him back on track. Although to be fair to Bickell, his 0.37 points per game this season is right in line with his career mark of 0.38 points per game. So, you know, this is kinda who he is. Anyway, I'm cool with it getting Teuvo back in the mix. Here's your first thread for this evening.

Go 'Hawks!
