It has been a few months since we acquired a used up Blackhawk. May as well.

Let's get James Neal. If we're losing Eakin, we need someone new who bugs Steve.

Only if they agree to throw in Ribeiro too.

I'd love to see blood come out of Hitch's ears after watching those two float it up all over the ice and then *goddess* to the refs that they didn't get enough power plays.

According to several sources, there is a legitimate possibility Hossa has played his final NHL game. (He could not be reached for comment. Neither could his agent, Ritch Winter. The Blackhawks declined to comment.) Apparently, he suffers from a serious allergic reaction to the equipment he wears.

The sources who confirmed the allergy stressed not to make fun of it, with one saying, “It’s only funny to anyone who’s never had it.” Details are sketchy, because no one would give full information, but the medication necessary to combat the allergy is potent enough that doctors wanted his blood tested every few weeks to make sure there were no major side effects.

Hossa is scheduled to be paid $1 million during each of the next four seasons, meaning almost 94 per cent of his contract is already paid. If he were to retire now, the Blackhawks would be hit with what are called “cap recapture” penalties — $3.675 million off their club’s cap number from next season until 2020-21. For a team already facing a crunch, that’s a massive blow.

Unless he doesn’t retire. He simply goes on long-term injured reserve.


Legit or not, as soon as his salary drops to $1 million from like $6 million, this happens.

Has this been a whole career thing? Also, couldn't he try other gear? Maybe go back to the cotton and leather worn by guys 40 years ago.

Hossa said he's skipping this season. Calls it a progressive skin disorder. Sounds worse than an allergy.

This also may be a bogus story to help the Hawks avoid eating his cap hit when what he's really doing is retiring. Who knows.

Isles general manager Garth Snow still covets Avalanche center Matt Duchene, however, and is believed to have an offer on the table that includes Hamonic, a prospect and possibly the Islanders’ 2018 first-round pick. Snow dealt away Friday night’s first-rounder, the 15th overall pick, to Vegas as part of an expansion-draft trade.

I hope the Isles do that. Their next two first rounders, a second, a prospect and their best d-man for Duchesne and NothingMan from Vegas. And you know that 2018 1st is going to be top-10.

The Stars should be pushing for Oshie instead. *f-bomb* the Hawks. Their time is over.

Adding Oshie would be cool.

Doing anything would be cool too.

Looking at free agent LWs, Radim Vrbata would be Ok. Don't like Radulov or Oshie, but then again there's now an open spot for a new whipping boy with Eakin going to LV.

I like how the broadcasters pretend having Reaves on the roster will protect Crosby. The instigator is 25 years old, yet these announcers still pretend enforcers change behavior.

Right after the Chicago's two trades.




Guess they were Saad without him.







Dreger Nashville is making a big push for Duchene.
