1. Last May (2006) I (hawksfan50) first saw Kyle Turris as a 16 yr old as Burnaby won the RBC Cup and I started posting in several forumns that I wanted to draft this kid for the B;ackhawks in 2007 ...(MY ORIGINAL "FROLOV"* hunch) *back in 2000 I had this hunch that Frolov would be the best Russian on that draft--but no--the Hawks did not listen to me,and instead too the busts Yakoubov and Vorobiev.. I willnever forgive them that mistake,for it was like I hadthis psychic "hunch" about who was going to be the best NHL'er of this trio.. 2. Taking my "Frolov" hunch further--I had expected the Blackhawks to be mid-pack this season--not counting onthe injuries that ruined their year,and back in September I expected TURRIS to be taken in the last third of round one at best--because he was amere BCHL'er--yet I hoped the Blackhawks would nab him "early" at mid round... 3. THEN --once Turris moved into tOP 5 consideration by mid-year,jumping to a potential #1 overall by seasdon's end (as per CSS #1 NA skater ranking),I stated in this and other forumns that THE HOCKEY GODS WOULD NEVER LET US WIN THE LOTTO -so we had no chance at Turris once he looked top 4 and we finished with the 5th pre-lotto..BUT lo and behold --the hockey gods relented --and by this providence Turris was back in the picture for the Blackhawks potential pick... 4. Jonathan Toews (who I also touted last year as my first choice for the Blackhawks to take) has chosen to wear #19 for the Blackhawks this season; Kyle Turris wore #19 for Burnaby! Co-incidennce???? 5. STEVE YZERMAN chose Toews to play for Team Canada at the WHC--they win Gold,Toews impreses everyone --including himself--and gains the confidence to turn pro this year; Last night between period in the SENs-Duckks Game 2--Don Cherry asks several of the top draft-eligibles who their favourite NHL player is...TURRIS answers: STEVE YZERMAN!!! Co-incident linkage???? 6. Thua all the OMENS and LINKAGES point to the JT-KT tandem as back-to-back draft first rounders 2006 and 2007 for the Blackhawks (also a good marketing slogan for the Hawks "T n T" ) ---but if you add the 3rd "linkage" you get: JT-KT-DT !!!! (surely this is an OMEN from the hockey gods that signals IT WAS MEANT TO BE!)... In short--all Tallon has to do is look at this sequence and the linkage coincidences and be convinced SOMEBODY is telling him the CORRECT thing TO DO: TAKE TURRIS!! TAKE TURRIS! As with the russkie troika of 2000---hawksfan50's great "hunch" bout who will turn out best FOR TE B:LACKHAWKS has been pre-approved by the hockey gods in deciding between KT PK and JVR..all signs point to Kyle Turris... It surely is a sign that IF Tallon proceeds as directed -- the Hawks will be Cup Champs down the line with "TnT" ...make it so!!!!
