    Calling him a ‘potential value backup’ isn’t commenting on his upside? What would you call that?

    He had a terrific playoff run in the AHL last year and was playing lights out in the first half of the year in the AHL. Yeah he hasn’t played a crazy amount this year in the NHL but he’s taken a pretty ridiclous workload of high danger chances behind a poor defense and posted very high end numbers. He’s given the Blackhawks org a lot to be excited about and there’s a pretty damn good chance he’ll be the starter by year two of this deal. It’s a pretty great no risk deal for the Blackhawks and for sure not “nothing to see”.

    Ahh, so when they did well, it was because Stan just brought in all the players without Q's input, but when they sucked, it was clearly because of Q having input. Hmm

    Fair enough, seemed like you were implying that all he is is a back up for 3 years. But that is not the intention. If I'm a 25 year old goalie who is finally getting a crack at the NHL, I take what is offered if it's guaranteed money.

    You can form your own opinions and clearly you feel strongly about Q.

    There are a number of coaches that could have won those cups with those rosters

    There are more coaches who could have won none, or 1 or 2. Player talk about Q is all I need to know how good he was.

    Your double standard is dumb, though.

    If you read the rest the series of posts, you'll understand the context.

    Sorry, guess I can't acknowledge the best Hawks coach in their history once in a while. Tired of people disrespecting him.

    Yeah, it was time for a change, appreciate what he did.

    If you had confidence in your ability to grow as a player, zero chance you're signing a 3 year deal at 1m each.

    it is staggering on how many can not accept the concept of turning the corner in the org. that is what the org did by setting up for the next step of the continue growth the Bhawks needed to do.

    lets not dwell on the past and look at the future, the future wins and excitement that is surely will come. this team is exciting to look at.

    continue that improvement !!!

    do you really think that Delia at this moment is a #1 goaie ??

    this is the main question that he was prob be shown, is he ready to step in and take that #1 responsibility, pressure and everything else that comes with being a #1 goalie ??

    this is what Delia camp is looking at. this yr is a small spect of an introduction to the NHL. plus he has the hot hand now. how much of that is real ??
