Jonathan, Thank you very much for the kind words. As I wrote in my one-year post, people like you make all the time I spend writing here completely worthwhile. I'm glad I can keep you coming back.

Great article. I thought that someone should come BACK to this and give you some credit. You were right about what the Hawks wanted to pay, what Niemi wanted to earn, and the predicted outcome of what would happen. Further props for the Turco mention...you hit the nail on the head. Keep doing what you are doing Mr. Bartl, your blog is the first place I go for Hawks news. PS I also loved "Reactions on Niemi, Turco from the guys with credentials"...it is great that someone else thinks that David Haugh is an idiot.
Blackhawks convention passes giveaway!!! http://bit.ly/a0iku3
Completely agree. You can replace toughness for less. I've actually felt pretty good since we re-signed Hammer. That gives us a totally solid top 4 d-men, Kane and Toews on one line, Bollie and Hossa on another, plus Sharp and Brouw floating somewhere... Guys: that's a solid core.
