It's a good thing Chicago has the biggest depth chart ever.

Looks like Holland made the right choice once again. Out with the baggage! Chi-town had the biggest s*** storm / incompetent offseason that I've seen in years.

So let's summarize:

1. They lost their #1 goal scorer to free agency.

2. His replacement is out with surgery for 4 months

3. They lost their staring goaltender to free-agency

4. They fired their GM and replaced him with a guy that has never been a GM before

5. They are in Salary Cap Hell next year and may lose one of their big three.

6. They overpaid for Cambell and are now stuck with him for 12 years.

7. They fired their coach last year and replaced him with Joel Quenville who in his illustrious career is only .500 in the playoffs.

8. They got their asses handed to them in the WCF last year by their biggest rivals.

9. They were embarassed on national tv last new years by their biggect rivals.

Boy, it must suck to be a Hawks fan..........

What's next?

I have a question: Do you think, that his injury cost Detroit Stanley Cup? Noboby wanted to make a surgery, because 7 mil. is a lot of money for just part of the season. But: Health first in hockey as in life i think. Detroit could have healthy and strong Hossa for playoffs, when two other key players were injured. Nobody knows, if he were under his play for this reason, but the lesson was written: Detroit missed the chance to have the best from him for the playoffs. I think, that the actual situation is very good for Hossa and Blackhawks. He will be strong for the right time.

So he'll be out until the end of November. So he'll miss 2 months of hockey out of the 84 months he's signed for. That's 2.4% of his contract. Or, if you'd rather look at it only in terms of next season, he'll miss the first 2 of 7 months, or 28.6% of the season. However, those two months are the least important, so whatever.

Maybe after his shoulder is repaired he'll play better? I dunno. But some of you seem to think this is a catastrophe instead of an inconvenience.

Correction. He'll miss 2 of the most important 8 months in the Blackhawks recent history.

This is the Hawks biggest and best window for taking a shot at the Cup and they'll be without their biggest off-season signing.

The injury was nothing serious. But when Hossa realized the entire weight of the Blackhawks organization would be placed on his shoulders, he decided it would be best to not have said shoulders injured.

The two least important months of those 8 months. Really, who cares about October and November if you know you're going to make it to the playoffs?

Basically.

With Kane, Toews, and others, there is no will be no problem on Chicago's part bringing offense.
