Ehhhhh maybe. It would be a shame, Raanta is such a likable guy, and signed his contract because he stated he really wanted to stay in Chicago. He signed a 2 year deal at 750,000 this offseason. Darling is only this year, so unless they extend him, I don't see it. The Hawks will need a serviceable backup next year, and with how strapped they'll be for $$$ against the cap, Raanta at $750,000 is about as good as it's going to get.

That's another reason this is so strange. Either way, tough to complain when they're winning 8 in a row.

It's not often you see 2 captains go at it. I wonder what the trigger was.

Not gonna happen, but you know that. People love it. I was front row for this beauty:

The entire UC was on their feet during the whole shootout. The fans ate it up.

I think all we can do is keep looking for ways to make them more rare, like making a 10 minute OT with 4 on 4 then 3 on 3 like the AHL is doing. That way shootouts are more "special" to people that seem them, etc.

I hope Raanta kills it tonight, I'm starting to feel bad for the guy. The picture of him sitting along the glass last night by himself because there wasn't enough room on the bench was the cherry on top.

Me too. Hope he shuts them out.

Also, newly aquired Tim Erixon is slotting in the 5th/6th defenseman role already, playing tonight.

Haven't been here in a bit but chicago's new goalie is fucking sick. Keith Kincaid, dudes young and got his first start the other night, a shoot out loss. From Albany here, played for union for a year or two before heading to the pros.

Except on the gwg last night when he was gliding around in his own zone and didn't bother to pick Visnovsky cutting to the middle.

Big win last night to stop the bleeding.

Nice game by Hawks/Antti. Calgary certainly didn't play like a team that has been struggling badly.

Saad has been on the verge of becoming something bigger for quite some time now, but his "problem" since coming in to the league has always been consistency.

If the kid can stay more consistent, it will be pretty damn awesome to watch. We need Bickell to turn it on a little more to drive his value up, because it's going to come down to Saad or Bickell this offseason...and if we have to lose Saad for Bickell I might self implode.

Not really Eakins fault that the team blew so badly, but someone needed to take the fall for the debacle that is the Oilers. Problems remain in that MacTavish is back behind the bench (barf!) and the continually love-in between Katz/Lowe and the rest continues. I'd say everyone needs to go but Katz isn't going to sell his team, and the odds of him firing Lowe are remote imo. I would say Messier should have a bigger role in things but that is still kind of the same ol' boys club.

Oh, and the team doesn't have any goaltending or defense. Other than that we're peachy!

Yeah. I just saw the tweet from Dreger. I'm interested to see what happens next...

A couple things from that.

"Voynov's wife had requested that Voynov not be charged.":

I always wonder what these women are thinking. Obviously, never been through anything like that but makes me wonder.

''Quite frankly, I'm beyond caring about reinstatement or cap relief,'' Lombardi said. ''My biggest concern is that if he is charged with a felony, this one incident could jeopardize Slava's entire career.'':

Yeah one incident of choking, punching and kicking his wife...This isn't drunk driving or something. Sometimes it better to not say anything at all.

Scared. Being manipulated. Thinking it was her fault. Going to go out on a limb that this wasn't the first domestic abuse of their relationship.

One of those tweets say it started at a party that night. If I'm not mistaken, the Kings halloween party was that evening.

It's really sad. Domestic abuse often goes unreported/excused by the victim. It's part of the abuse; emotional.
