The Blackhawks appear to be progressing nicely.
Coach Denis Savard is taking steps toward giving the team a second offensive line by pairing center Jonathan Toews with the oft-injured Martin Havlat and a winger to be named later.
Of course, this being Havlat, he’s already been hurt — luckily, it was just a chipped tooth.
I’m looking forward to this season because it seems that a lot of teams, like Chicago, are going with speed, wherever they can find it or generate it. Over in Colorado, they’re also expected to play a much more up-tempo game next season.
Also, you might have noticed the blog looks a little different. I just moved over to WordPress. I still have to get my old blogroll back, but in the meantime, if you notice anything weird, drop me a line.
