MAILBAG: Youth Movement, What’s Next for Hawks + More

November 1, 2019 - 9:17 AM ET

The Blackhawks have a chance to redeem themselves this weekend as they get back on the ice to take on the LA Kings (Sat) and Anaheim Ducks (Sun). I won’t spend much time setting up the games as we have a bunch of great questions to go through below. However, I will call out a couple things as it’s been a somewhat eventful week.

Blackhawks still consistently inconsistent

November 4, 2019 - 8:01 AM ET

The Blackhawks once again had a stinker of a game when they took on the LA Kings on Saturday night. Chicago was able to get 2 points out of Anaheim on Sunday though and there were some positives from last night's game. Let's look at them.

Hawks finally look like a real hockey team

November 8, 2019 - 10:23 AM ET

I had to take a time out this week from all things Blackhawks. After that game on Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks, I wasn't sure what to write. However, they finally looked like a real hockey team last night and I have thoughts.

The stars are starting to show up for Blackhawks

November 11, 2019 - 8:17 AM ET

The Hawks built off of their 5-2 win over Vancouver as they took 3 out of 4 points this weekend. The stars are really picking up their game. This is a really good thing as early in the season the Hawks were being fuelled by the bottom 6 on most nights which wasn't a good recipe for success.

Hawks need to take advantage of struggling opponents + Murphy is close

November 13, 2019 - 8:47 AM ET

Even though it was 57 shots against, I’m still enjoying that win against the Leafs on Sunday. I will admit I’m mostly still thinking about that “W” because I’m in the Toronto market and have a lot of friends that are Leafs fans, so it’s quite enjoyable seeing the Hawks beat them in any fashion. Moving on to what’s to come for the Blackhawks, I wanted to touch on their upcoming opponents, Connor Murphy’s imminent return.

Boqvist sent down, but he'll be back

November 15, 2019 - 9:27 AM ET

As expected, Adam Boqvist was sent down with the impending return of Connor Murphy. Some were mad. Some weren't surprised by the move. Some were both. Boqvist had a strong showing in his 6 games. He registered his 1st career NHL goal, averaged 14:27 of ice time and most importantly proved he could hang in the NHL. The reality is that he will be back. Will it be this year? I would say there's a strong chance that's the case.

A whole new world

November 18, 2019 - 6:02 PM ET

Live from Mexico, I have some thoughts. What a satisfying weekend for Hawks fans. The real talk is that the Chicago Blackhawks are 6-1-2 in their last 9 games.
