    In an attempt to increase ticket sales, the Chicago Blackhawks sent old man youngster Chris Kunitz to various retirement homes. Cant let those seats for disabled people go empty! Here are some highlights from his visits to these nursing homes.


    [​IMG]
    Here's Kunitz playing cards with some of his fellow seniors the seniors he visited.

    And here he is in a hockey game that featured the senior citizens that still had functioning hips. Chris did very well facing men and women in their 80s. He even earned the title of MVP, which included an award of a free cup of pudding.


    You can catch the spry Chris tonight (probably unless he gets scratched) on WGN and NHL Network. Game's on at 7PM CT, so plan those nap times accordingly!

    This is a picture of Wilford Brimley in the 1985 movie, "Cocoon."

    Chris Kunitz is only 10 years younger in this picture.

    Don't worry, visitation is allowed between now and whenever the next GDT is up.

    CBJ except foe Wennberg are sending an almost totally B AHL lineup to play this final game...clearly they did not want most of their NHLERS getting good hurt..If we lose to thus B skeleton crew ,they might as well fire Q and his staff right now..There is no exuse. .and do not give me the Hawks "stats"(we have "stars"?) also playing less than full out cause they too want to avoid injuries...So far this season...0 goals from DeBrincat,Saad,Anisimov,and Schatz only 1 g1a in 3GP ...so now we face a mostly AHL lineup thanks to CBJ resting most of their NHLERS ...no excuses for any of our guys to have a poor show ..especially after our last game clunker again st Ottawa...

    Look ..did you see Tavares goofing off from top firm in his pre-season? NOPE.. he payed it like a 'star" should and he lit up goalies...looks like he will get 125 pts and 60 goals this season ...Did not save anything...just payed like expectation..as a highly paid star SHOULD..

    No excuse tonight for any player. ..star or grunt...highly paid or lowly paid ...to put up stinker game tonight..no excuse if that happens. .it would show players have bought out. ..on Q..we cannot have it..Q will be on a very short leash if their is this attitude of non but-in pervadi gnourcteam. .we cannot allow another season of just punch g the click and taking the cheques to the bank. .there must be a team sense of purpose and every player must say to himself:"I will give my best ...I will not let this team and it's fans down..If they do not buy in to what Q is selling. .then Q is finished. .we cannot play as dreadfully as what our eyes saw in the last game..

    In 2015, the Hawks third line was ...

    * A younger Sharp, Vermette, Teravainen

    This team is rebuilding.

    The Hawks could create a decent third line, but it would mean Hayden and probably Kunitz in the top-6. It comes down to whether you want a stronger top-6 or a more balanced top-9

    I dream of Kunitz trying to slow McJesus ... with Seabrook and Manning on the blueline and Ward in net.

    Just switch the wingers on the 3rd and 4th lines and call it a day. At least that way the 3rd line has the potential to be decent and add some offense.

    I think I prefer the balanced lineup.

    Saad-Toews-Kahun
    Hayden-Anisimov-Kane
    DeBrincat-Schmaltz-Sikura
    Kunitz-Kruger-Kampf
    Johnson

    Toews and Cat have chemistry so maybe flip him with Saad and Anisimov with Schmaltz.

    DeBrincat-Toews-Kahun
    Hayden-Schmaltz-Kane
    Saad-Anisimov-Sikura
    Kunitz-Kruger-Kampf
    Johnson

    Think either lineup is >> than what Q is icing now.

    Saad has looked worse than Hayden. Give him a look in the top 6.

    Saad needs to be in the top 6 to maximize his impact imo. He is not a line carrying type.
