    On the same topic, the Minnesota-St. Louis series has been pretty unwatchable.

    St. Louis has been unwatchable for a few years. Pretty good teams over the years, but they play the most boring style. A Pred/Blues series is going to be completely unwatchable.

    The NHL is much better off with Hitchcock retiring....and then I google him and find out the Stars hired this man....unreal.

    Third jerseys need to be burned.
    We get a respite for one year.

    Afterwards I'm sure they'll be sh-t again. Sports merc is a license to take stupid people's money, and third jerseys are the biggest scam around.

    That place is a complete sh_t show when the Hawks are in the SCF, let alone now. I've never seen a fanbase of a successful team hate on their own at the drop of a dime like those a-holes do.

    Really some of the worst sports fans I've ever come across. I don't feel as though I'm one of them and haven't really since the current resurgence.


    Too many meatball know it all, all of a sudden hockey experts and being Chicagoans, they have to let everyone know constantly how much they know and how right they are.


    And yeah, ha ha... I should fit right in then.

    No. Not even close.

    As a Winter Hawks fan I am duly vested with the power to decide this case.

    The Black Hawks sweater is fine, but it isn't even the best indian head sweater in hockey.

    Speaking of hockey experts... I can't believe I'm saying this, but I like Rosenblum's analysis. It's the D, stupid.

    So you've never been to Boston.

    Though as loathsome as they are, they are in truth only slightly worse than New Yorkers.

    I've heard the worst on the planet were Habs fans during their dynasties. They combined the worst characteristics of spoiled, entitled fan brats and, well, the French.

    If we're going outside the NHL, I gotta offer this: https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1yLjLO...t-b-hockey.jpg

    Wait a second, WTH does that 2016 banner have Fighting Sioux on it? In April last year they were either still UND The No Name Steaks, or The Fighting Hawks. They had to drop the Fighting Sioux moniker a number of years ago by that point.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    I always loved the Nordiques home whites. Along with the North Stars they had the most crisp combo of white and color of all time.

    I've always, always felt the Hawks/Sioux head sweaters were the most overrated.

    I wondered the same thing when I saw that picture.
